Hydrogen gas has many uses in the lab. Often required as a carrier gas or a fuel gas in GC applications, hydrogen supplied by an on-site hydrogen generator is the safer and cost-effective alternative to pressurized cylinders. But which H2 generator should you opt for?
As we enter 2020, reports on the helium crisis predict the shortage will ease by the second half of the year but this does not mean that it will be disappear - it’s actually anticipated to go on until 2021.
A recent study revealed how strong the attraction of flowers can be to mosquitoes. What the GC analysis in the study also showed is that some chemicals present in a specific specie of orchids can repel mosquitoes by their scent – could this help in the development of improved repellent products?
A number of labs are switching from gas cylinders to an in-house, on-demand gas generator to supply gas to their analytical instrument. However, some laboratories are still using the more traditional bulk supply methods, which comes at an increasingly high cost.
An FID, or Flame Ionization Detector, is the most common detector paired with gas chromatography instruments for analytical applications. It is used in a number of industries such as in natural gas, pharmaceutical, and petrochemical markets. But how does an FID work?
