Q:Do you find your workflow being disrupted by your gas cylinder supply?
Labs across North America are experiencing delays in their gas supply chain, which some experts are forecasting could continue well into 2023, leading to problematic delays in lab analysis. Along with the delays to gas supply, labs are also seeing the price of gas rising year on year—with some suppliers set to increase prices by up to 20 percent on top of last year’s 15 percent price hike. A reliable, and sustainable, gas generation solution is crucial to ensure labs are able to continue their analysis without being hindered by supply chain problems.
A:Investing in a PEAK gas generator will give you the freedom to produce gas on-demand.
PEAK Scientific provide nitrogen, hydrogen, and zero air gas generators which can offer the independence needed to move away from relying on gas cylinder deliveries. In comparison to cylinders, the upfront cost of a gas generator, followed by an annual service contract, can help you achieve an ROI much quicker for many LC-MS users—avoiding the continued gas price increases associated with cylinders. On-site gas generators can also support lean management practices like 5S and Six Sigma while giving you the freedom to work unhindered by unreliable gas cylinder deliveries.
