Peak Scientific has extended its range of industry-leading, hydrogen generators for laboratories with the launch of the Precision Hydrogen Trace 250.

The new, smaller model sits alongside the existing Hydrogen Trace 500, to offer a more cost-effective solution for those requiring lower flow rates, such as labs with only one or two gas chromatograph (GC) instruments.

The new Hydrogen Trace 250 features innovations in trace dryer technology that ensure ultra high purity performance.

For those currently using hydrogen or considering hydrogen as a carrier gas for GC and GC-MS (gas chromatograph-mass spectrometry), the generator delivers 250cc/min of hydrogen at 99.9999% purity to meet market demand from laboratories.

GC Product Manager, Greg Stringfellow commented, “We have introduced the new Precision Hydrogen Trace 250 to give our customers a more cost-effective hydrogen carrier gas option for those looking for the unique benefits of Peak Precision, but may not require the higher flow of the existing Hydrogen Trace 500.”

“Flexibility is a core benefit of the Precision series as a whole so this is a welcome addition to the series.”

Meanwhile, Peak Scientific has also today announced that its Precision Series has been made available by Agilent Technologies as a 3PP gas generator solution for its customers.

A leader in life sciences, diagnostics and applied chemical markets, Agilent provides laboratories worldwide with analytical instruments, services, consumables and expertise. As reported by gasworld last week, Agilent Technologies Inc. is bringing the latest mass spectrometry technology to its collaboration with a New York college in research into a deadly and progressive neurodegenerative disease – amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
