Gas chromatographers are again facing another wave of helium gas shortage, leading to high prices and long delivery time. Let us know which is your choice: migrate all your methods to an alternative carrier gas or trying to reduce helium gas consumption? If the second option is of more interest to you, read more on my recent blog: What Good is Conserving Helium Carrier Gas Only When Your GC System is Idle? Learn how to efficiently conserve helium carrier gas not only when your GC is idle but as well when it is running samples, for a real 24/7 saving.
I'd like to know which is your approach in your lab. Please share!
