One of ICR’s main priorities is to apply knowledge of cancer genetics and
We are proud to have supplied the ICR with our NM30LA generator to aid their research. We asked the Head of Structural Chemistry (Amin Mirza, what he thought of Peak’s gas generators and the benefits they have brought to their lab, here is what he had to say:
Typically what is the focus of your LC-MS analysis - what sort of applications?
“Anti-cancer drug targets and small molecule drug compounds.”
What Peak Scientific generators do you have in your laboratory and what LC-MS instruments do they supply?
“We have multiple NM30LAs supplying Triple Quadrupole and Quadrupole Time of Flight Mass Spectrometers”
What prompted you to choose a Peak generator and how long have you used them?
“We needed something smaller that could supply nitrogen gas as we had some space issues in the lab. Peak offered exactly that. We have been a customer for the past 15 years.”
What has been the key benefit of deploying Peak generators as opposed to your previous gas supply solution?
“Where we have issues delivering building compressed air and N2 to a lab.”
How would you describe your purchasing experience with Peak in terms of speed of response, ease of ordering, catering for your needs and timing of delivery?
“Great. It has been a positive experience.”
Have you ever had a site visit from a Peak engineer, if so, could you describe your
“Yes we have and it was excellent.”
Would you recommend Peak Scientific generators to other laboratories - and if so, what would be your main reason for the recommendation?
“Yes, all in one solution for nitrogen supply.”
Looking to safeguard your gas supply? The latest version of the NM30LA is our best-selling NM32LA which supplies a steady flow of nitrogen at up to 32 L/min. The Institute of Cancer Research has eliminated the need for large, bulky cylinders in the lab, freeing up space and reducing safety concerns.
