Even the slightest impurities can produce inaccuracies in analytical results, interfering with basic research, product development and sample testing.
Today's instruments offer a degree of analytical accuracy unprecedented in science. Computer software can interpret, analyse and graph this data faster and more precisely than ever. Your results can be superior. With BOC Special Gases, impurities in laboratory gases won't put your analyses in jeopardy.
Chromatography Carrier and Support Gases
BOC Gases provides high-purity carrier and support gases for optimal functioning of your gas chromatographic systems. The use of high-purity carrier gases bypasses the need for expensive and unpredictable in-line purifiers which often demonstrate breakthrough of contaminants.
Instruments whose accuracy can be enhanced through the use of BOC special gases include discharge ionization detectors, electron capture detectors, flame ionization detectors, flame photometric detectors, and HECD and HALL® ELCD electrolytic conductivity detectors. BOC special gases are also used in helium ionization detectors, mass spectrometers, photoionization detectors, thermal conductivity detectors and ultrasonic detectors.
Instrumentation Gas Finder
BOC Speciality Gases offers a wide range of high purity carrier, purge and detector gases. Our Instrumentation Gas Finder offers suggestions for the respective instruments. For more detailed purity specifications, please note that purity and gas specifications may differ depending on instrument manufacturer. Contact the BOC Speciality Gases team on 0800 02 0800 if you need precise information about the gas requirements for your analyser.
Laboratory Gas Mixtures
In addition to pure gases, BOC provides a wide range of gas mixtures for the calibration of instrumentation in scientific laboratories.
The company has a worldwide network of modern, fully instrumented special gas plants where customers' gas mixture requirements are precisely blended and accurately analysed. Our advanced production techniques ensure a thorough mixing of all components and the reproducibility of mixtures. BOC will custom blend mixtures and complete impurity or specific impurity analysis can be provided upon request.
BOC also offers a complete range of cryogenic solutions for the science and research industry. Whether you require gas in small or large volumes, CRYOSPEED® can meet your needs by offering a hands free delivery of liquid argon, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen.
BOC's cylinder management service offers a pictorial map of cylinders in your laboratory enabling you to account for all the cylinders in your lab. The interactive system highlights dangerously stored and used cylinders and regulators and alerts you on gas mixture and regulator expiry.
