Converting GC Methods from Helium to Hydrogen



October 29, 2020

Helium is the most commonly used carrier gas for hydrocarbon analysis by gas chromatography. However, helium supplies are running critically low and prices are increasing. Fortunately, there is another carrier gas that can generate the same fast, accurate results you see with helium at a lower cost. Hydrogen achieves similar chromatographic separation to helium at higher flow rates, resulting in faster analysis times and increased throughput. Watch the video to learn how you can easily convert your gas chromatography methods from helium to hydrogen using Shimadzu's Nexis GC-2030.
