At the forefront of the rapidly expanding nicotine, NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy) and e-cigarette market,
Typically what is the focus of your GC analysis - what sort of applications?
A range of analyses from routine QC
What Peak Scientific generators do you have in your laboratory and what GC instruments do they supply?
We have a Precision Zero Air and a Precision Hydrogen 200 – these are supplying an Agilent 7820A GC-FID, which is one of the ‘workhorses’ of our laboratory, and an Agilent 7820A/5977E GC-MS.
What prompted you to choose Peak generators and how long have you used them?
Convenience and safety; there’s no need for us to have helium cylinders on site and no need to change air or helium cylinders at all, so that reduces instrument
What has been the key benefit of deploying Peak generators as opposed to your previous gas supply solution?
Our generators are our original gas supply solution. We had weighed up the option of using cylinders but with all the benefits a gas generator had over this gas supply method we opted to use Peak’s Precision series gas generators.
How would you describe your experience with Peak in terms of speed of response, ease of ordering, catering for your needs and timing of delivery?
My experience of Peak’s customer service has always been good.
Have you ever had a site visit from a Peak engineer? If so, could you describe your
Yes. The service support has always been good and the engineers are always helpful.
Would you recommend Peak Scientific generators to other laboratories - and if so, what would be your main reason for the recommendation?
Definitely more convenient and much safer than using gas cylinders.
