Hydrogen has long been considered the best carrier gas in gas chromatography as it provides fast analysis, higher efficiencies, reduced costs and prolonged column life. The advantages of hydrogen are clear, however as an explosive gas, an undetected hydrogen leak from a broken column or faulty connection can put your laboratory and personnel at risk. Da Vinci Laboratory Solutions has developed the DVLS³ Simply, Smart Sensor for gas chromatography systems to resolve these safety risks by providing a reliable, safe technique to detect hydrogen leaks in GC laboratories.
