Navitas Life Sciences have been using Peak generators from the Genius and Infinity XE series to carry out quantification of peptides and proteins for the past 12 years. As K V Lakshmi Narayana has described, the reason for their loyalty to Peak Scientific is that Peak's laboratory nitrogen generators continually deliver quality and suit Navitas' specific laboratory needs. Peak has assisted Navitas with scoping out their lab's nitrogen demands, including assisting in helping to acquire additional storage tanks (as seen in the picture above) to provide the best solution for Navitas. Peak Scientific's global team of dedicated field service engineers located in over 20 countries, have a 97% first visit fix rate. According to K V Lakshmi, the main reasons to recommend Peak generators are the product quality and excellent service provided by Peak's team in India.
Navitas have noticed that the Inifnity XE series offers a more cost effective nitrogen gas supply for their laboratory compared with cylinders and the generator lowers their company's carbon footprint as there is no need for repeated deliveries. Engineered to provide nitrogen to laboratories which already have an external source of air, Infinity is a dependable choice for LC-MS and Sample Evaporators. With a range of flow rates to meet varying gas demands, the Infinity XE series are silent in operation and require minimal set-up.
The Genius series gas generators, which Navitas have also acquired, were designed to be true standalone nitrogen delivery solutions, containing internal air compressors to deliver air to the system in order to produce high purity nitrogen gas. Peak Scientific's best-selling product, the Genius NM32LA, Navitas have been using as well as countless laboratories around the world is the ideal nitrogen gas generator for the majority of LC-MS instruments on the market today.
