Horizen 24 nitrogen generator gets put through its paces at Gachon Medical University

The College of Medical Science at Gachon University is based on the vision of a medical school that exceeds limits and changes the world. The founding ideology of the College of Medical Science is 'philanthropy, service, and patriotism,’ which develops medical capacity that realizes respect for life and contributes to the health care of the nation. It has a mission of 'nurturing professional medical professionals who contribute to and lead the world's medical development.'

We spoke with Sang-Heon Jeon, a postgraduate student, who has been testing the Horizen 24, PEAK Scientific’s newest, most energy-efficient nitrogen gas generator.

Typically what is the focus of your LC-MS analysis - what sort of applications?

Application of metabolic analysis to produce microorganisms using the Agilent Single Mass ESI

What LC-MS instrument make and model does your Horizen 24 supply?

Agilent InfinityLab LC/MSD

What are the top 3 benefits Horizen 24 brings to your lab?

1) Compacted design

2) Quietness of equipment

3) Convenience of display UI.

What has been the key advantage of deploying Horizen 24 as opposed to your previous gas supply solution?

Compared to the Genius SQ 24, Horizen 24 has less noise and is easy to place in the lab.

Please describe Horizen 24's size in comparison with other gas supplies you have used. For example cylinders, bulk gas, or other generators.

We haven’t used cylinders and bulk gas, we previously used the Genius SQ 24. We have found Horizen 24 produces less noise and has a neater exterior.

Please describe what impact Horizen 24 has, or will have, on your lab's carbon footprint. Consider other forms of gas supply in your answer, for example, deliveries of cylinders and Horizen's energy consumption.

It is more convenient than regular gas cylinder delivery requests. Additionally, this helps reduce our carbon emissions by using the PEAK Generator.

Have you ever had a site visit from a PEAK engineer in relation to any of your generators, if so, could you describe your experience of this support?

We have had a visit from an engineer and they were kind and had a professional work attitude. The quick feedback, accurate issue diagnosis, and resolution were great.

Would you recommend PEAK Scientific generators to other laboratories - and if so, what would be your main reason for the recommendation?

Definitely, yes. Even though the product is from overseas, we have been offered quick feedback and great quality.

Top 3 Benefits of Horizen 24

Save space: One of the standout features of Horizen 24 is its streamlined design. Unlike its predecessors, Horizen 24 has a smaller footprint while providing better nitrogen.

Save money: With Horizen's innovative energy management systems, coupled with patent-pending heat optimization, Horizen will reduce not only your lab's electricity bills but also the demands on your site's air conditioning.

Save the planet: With lower energy consumption than any other gas generator on the market, Horizen offers a sustainable solution that helps to reduce your carbon footprint.

The team at the College of Medical Science at Gachon University in Korea also found  Horizen offered a quieter nitrogen gas solution as well as providing a more convenient UI display.

What’s on the Horizen?

Horizen 24 is now available to order, having launched on 1st March 2024. 

Our team of engineers has introduced several new technologies to Horizen 24 to make it our most efficient gas generator to date in the smallest footprint possible.

Dedicated Internal Compressor: PEAK-designed compressor technology reduces power consumption by 55% in comparison to the equivalent PEAK generator which optimizes gas delivery while reducing heat output in your lab.

Heat Optimization Technology: Protecting the membrane from water droplets and enhancing performance and reliability in the gas stream, the Heat Optimization Technology in Horizen 24 is a space-saving, cost-effective, unique component designed by PEAK Scientific. This helps labs achieve ultra-dry nitrogen for your LC-MS analysis.

The team at Gachon University has already seen the benefits of Horizen 24, even outside of the benefits that we designed the generator to have. From its compact size, to reduce noise, to the convenience of the UI display, Horizen 24 nitrogen gas generator has benefited the team in the lab and worked well with their Agilent InfinityLab LC/MSD.
