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?
As a highly flammable tasteless, colorless and odorless gas, hydrogen can be a huge cause of concern for many labs. For this reason, hydrogen generators have been replacing more traditional methods of hydrogen gas supply, providing a safer environment in the lab.
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?
With Precision Hydrogen SL, Peak Scientific has engineered a state-of-the-art gas generator for labs requiring hydrogen gas to support their GC flame detector, creating a more streamlined solution for the lab’s workflow.
