Laser ablation is becoming a popular technique for direct solid sampling in analytical chemistry. But what exactly is laser ablation and why would you need a nitrogen generator for it?
Does your lab use nitrogen gas cylinders? If so, you’ve probably considered purchasing an on-site nitrogen generator. You might have also wondered whether it would be worth the investment. Read on to discover what you could save on by making this switch.
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.
A team from the University of Camerino in Italy, recently used LC-MS/MS to identify killer toxins to discover new opportunities for controlling Malaria - a deadly infectious disease common in a number of tropical and subtropical countries.
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?
