Guaranteeing Superior-Quality Gases for Gas Chromatography


Ever since gas chromatography debuted well over a century ago, it’s become an all-important analytical tool in quite a few industries, the pharmaceutical and food industries first, perhaps, among them. Face it: hardly any other ways of splitting up and analyzing the components of chemical mixtures are as elementary, as efficacious, or as precise. Nowadays, gas chromatography is pervasive in the quantitative and qualitative analysis of complex chemical compositions and the purification of chemical compounds. It’s also generally used to monitor industrial processes and in the quality-control testing of products.

Of course, the carrier gases necessary for gas chromatography, aside from having to be either inert or unreactive, must be at least 99.995% pure – more, in some instances! And that’s where Noble Gas Solutions really makes a difference. Now, it’s true, we haven’t existed as long as gas chromatography. But, as a respected PurityPlus® partner producer-distributor, we’ve been providing chemical researchers and various industries with carrier gases of the maximum purity feasible for quite a while now. We guarantee it, too. Why? Because Noble Gas Solutions, like each and every one of the 600 PurityPlus® partner gas production facilities throughout the states, is carefully inspected and certified each year by a trusted independent third-party outfit. Our Albany customers will corroborate the purity we deliver.

Which carrier gas we deliver – helium (He), argon (Ar), nitrogen (N2), carbon dioxide (CO2), or hydrogen (H2), largely – depends on the kind of detector in use and the chemical components being investigated. Usually, we offer gases suitable for…

  • Thermal Conductivity Detectors,
  • Flame Ionization Detectors,
  • Electron Capture Detectors,
  • Helium Ionization Detectors,
  • Flame Photometric Detectors,
  • Photo Ionization Detectors,
  • GC-Mass Spectrometry,
  • High-Frequency Discharge Detectors,
  • Discharge Ionization Detectors, and
  • Ultrasonic Detectors

Our Albany customers also count on us having the carrier gases they need when they need them. Local availability further means that our customers have timey access to our technical expertise and can better cultivate the kind of personal relationship with us that serves the objectives of both parties.
