The shortage of helium and its increased costs are encouraging laboratories to find suitable alternatives. Learn how LECO achieves quality results utilizing Hydrogen as a carrier gas.
The advantages of helium as a carrier gas for mass spectrometers have long been known, but it is a limited natural resource with varied supplies and expenses. On the other hand, hydrogen gas generators can be installed in any lab for a constant supply and, conveniently, increased chromatographic speeds.
Expedite GC Analysis with Hydrogen
Helium is becoming an increasingly limited natural resource; using Hydrogen to achieve increased chromatographic throughput in GC applications is attractive. Both have advantages and disadvantages. LECO experts investigated the use of Hydrogen as a carrier gas for GC-TOF-MS analysis. Nick Jones, LECOs Global Application and Development Director (Separation Sciences) presents the method transfer approaches used, the technological benefits, and application examples in the presentation below.
This presentation was part of the Enhanced GC-MS Workflow Solutions webinar LECO presented on 30 November 2022. A series of presentations explored best approaches to enhance one- and two-dimentional gas chromatography applications. Interested individuals can watch the webinar in its entirety, or may choose to view the individual portions:
