The role of gas analysis in medical gas production


High-purity gases – particularly oxygen – play a vital role in healthcare. These medical gases are used in diagnostic applications and medical treatments, along with applications in pharmaceutics and biotechnology.

Since they are often used in life-critical situations, they are subject to the same stringent regulations as medicinal drugs. They must be tested for purity and impurities depending on the method of manufacture. Modern gas analysis techniques play a key role in supporting those who produce and supply medical gases, delivering the measurements needed to ensure the strictest requirements are met, as we explore here.
