Minimizing Touch Points Involved with Gas Usage in the Laboratory
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected laboratories in many ways, including many cutting the number of employees in the laboratory at any given time. Spreading the virus is a main concern across workplaces, and eliminating unnecessary touch points between employees is more important now than it has ever been. An inhouse stand alone gas generator reduces the number of personnel contact involved with the use of gas bottles and cylinders in the laboratory. Once a generator is installed in the laboratory, minimum user interaction is required for 24/7 usage, and minimal maintenance is required.
In a large laboratory, gas cylinders may be replaced up to even 50 times in a single month. The bottles must be received and stored, transported to the laboratory and then installed into the analytical system. When the contents of the bottle have been used up, the procedure is reversed and the empty bottle is returned to the supplier. Then, you include the number of times the cylinders must be touched for inspection, moving to the laboratory, and then using the cylinder or bottle when opening and closing the flow.
On the other hand, once a generator is installed in the laboratory, minimum user interaction is required for 24/7 usage, and minimal maintenance is required. An added bonus to gas generators over cylinders is consistent clean gasses, and cost savings over time.*
