Exploring the unknown begins with your questions. We are a partner who can help you find answers.

If there’s one thing you need to operate an effective analytical or research lab, it’s precision. With our instrument-grade and ultra-high-purity gases, we meet the strictest standards of quality around. We can create custom gas mixtures to your lab’s exact specifications, too. And you get proof of purity for every specialty gas cylinder with a Certificate of Analysis signed by our lab specialists, because you don’t have room for error.

Let us apply our KnowHow™ to work with you to reduce variables in your lab.

Industry Gases



Argon (Ar) is the primary gas used to produce plasma energy sources for sample atomization or ionization in such analytical instruments as atomic emission, atomic absorption and mass spectrometers.


Carbon Dioxide

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is used in incubators and bioreactors as an essential metabolite or agent for pH regulation to promote bacteria, animal and plant cell growth. Carbon Dioxide is the primary mobile phase for supercritical fluid chromatography.



Helium (He) is the most common carrier gas in gas chromatography. Because of its exceptionally low boiling point (approximately -269°C or -451°F), liquid helium is used to cool NMR and MRI magnets to the point where their electrical resistance is virtually non-existent and they become superconducting.



Hydrogen (H2) acts as a carrier gas or combustion gas in multiple analytical applications, including gas chromatography, atomic emission spectroscopy and atomic absorption spectroscopy.



Nitrogen (N2) is commonly applied for inerting, stripping, drying and packaging. It is also used as a carrier, diluent or nebulization gas in various analytical instruments. Liquid nitrogen is essential for freezing and preserving many biological materials, including cord blood, bone marrow, sperm, cell lines and heart valves. Liquid N2 is also used with a variety of lab equipment, such as cold traps, gas adsorption systems, and NMR and MRI instruments.



Oxygen (O2) is critical for many bacteria, animal, and plant cell growth applications and can be supplied to incubators and bioreactors to achieve optimal cell growth. Oxygen is also used for combustion of samples during elemental analysis.
