Agilent India: Helium Conservation and Alternatives

Ongoing helium srtages can cause unpredictability for gas chromatographers. This is impacting lab managers who have now to manage sensible price fluctuations and potential delivery interruptions with helium carrier gas for GC analyses.

There might be different approaches to address the consequences of helium shortage and increased costs. In many cases switching to alternative gas can be a suitable solution but there are situations where you really need to use helium as your carrier gas. Regulated methods, SOPs, or high-sensitivity GC/MS methods may require the use of helium. In these cases, helium conservation should be pursued.

In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Take advantage of Gas Saver.

  • Utilize the optional programmable helium conservation module for your Agilent GC.

  • Check and maintain your helium infrastructure to prevent leaks.
