Permeation Tubes for Difficult Mixtures Subscription
As analytical requirements seek quantification at ever lower concentration levels the gas mixtures required for verification and calibration become more difficult to obtain or prepare, and often impossible to store. Concentrations may be extremely low (parts per billion, or even parts per trillion.) Analytes are often highly polar, or highly reactive, and may react with each other or the matrix. Perhaps a truly zero matrix is not possible for the concentration range desired. Or perhaps ...
