Nitrogen in Lab Equipment

When it comes to science, it all comes down to the details. Laboratories require very specific atmospheric conditions so that they can ensure accurate results and lasting cells, and they use nitrogen gas to maintain them. Here is a closer look at how nitrogen gas is used around lab equipment as well as why on-site nitrogen gas is the best option.

How Nitrogen Helps Lab Equipment

Working with cells is serious business, and even the slightest variance in temperature, humidity, or oxygen level can have a big impact on the results. By infusing the necessary space with nitrogen gas, scientists can effectively control every aspect of the environment to make sure the cell incubators, mass spectrometers, dry boxes, IVF incubators, and more, can all maintain the ideal environment for optimal results.

Why Use Laboratory Nitrogen Generators

Within these lab applications, a large amount of nitrogen gas is required. Since the nitrogen must be infused consistently, an on-site nitrogen generator is the clear option. At On Site Gas, our laboratory nitrogen generators are highly efficient, compact, and can produce high-purity nitrogen for both low and high flow applications. Here are the benefits of using an on-site nitrogen generator versus relying on cylinders.

  • Reduce Expenses – While purchasing a laboratory nitrogen generator upfront may cost more than cylinders, it is a one-time expense. There are no recurring rental fees, delivery surcharges, or anything else. Once the cost of the generator is recouped, the laboratory can essentially produce nitrogen for free (with minimal maintenance costs).
  • Improve Workflow – Using an on-site nitrogen generator saves a lot of time, too. There is no need to switch out cylinders or keep an eye on the gas levels, and there is no need to worry about the gas supply running out mid-analysis. With an on-site nitrogen generator, laboratory personnel can essentially set up the nitrogen flow and forget about it.
  • Ensure Safety – When changing out nitrogen gas cylinders, there is always a risk of somebody getting hurt or something getting broken. The cylinders are large and heavy, and trying to maneuver them around fragile lab equipment is just asking for trouble.
  • Save Energy – Using an on-site nitrogen generator requires much less energy to operate than it takes the nitrogen plants to produce the gas that is put into cylinders. So, when a laboratory chooses to make their own nitrogen, they are reducing their carbon footprint.

When exact atmospheres are required, laboratories can depend on the nitrogen generators from On Site Gas Systems. To learn more about our customization options and to discover the true ROI of a laboratory nitrogen generator, contact us today.

Why the Military Relies on Portable Oxygen Generators

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Every moment of every day, U.S. soldiers are risking their lives for our country, and more times than not, they are in extremely remote locations surrounded by rugged conditions. So, when medical care is needed, they need an oxygen generator that can withstand the harsh conditions without being too bulky to transport. With our portable oxygen generator systems, referred to as POGS, the military can receive the on-demand oxygen they require to provide medical care to our soldiers across the globe.

Examples of On Site Oxygen Uses

Our USP 93% POGS were built with the brutal environment of a war zone in mind. Meaning they are very well made and durable, yet they are small and simple to transport to remote locations. Most importantly, they create pure, medical-grade oxygen to aid our soldiers wherever it is needed. Here are just some of the ways the military uses our portable oxygen generator systems:

  • POGS are used to fill up cylinders that can be transported by first responders. As they arrive on the scene, they have full tanks ready to go, and the tanks can be easily refilled as needed.
  • Alternatively, POGS are used directly on a patient in a field hospital instead of having to worry about filling up cylinders. The portable oxygen generator system makes sure the patient never runs out of the oxygen supply they need to survive.
  • Our medical-grade on site oxygen generators are also used on military aircrafts to provide the necessary oxygen for ventilators and anesthesia units.
  • On site oxygen is also being used to provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy to patients, which has been shown to be an effective treatment for PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Why On Site Gas Systems for POGS

When it comes to on site oxygen use in the military, it is impossible to predict how much is going to be needed. That is what makes on-demand oxygen so important. The military will always have the supply they need, no matter how many patients end up requiring the assistance of oxygen. With our POGS, they don’t have to worry about durability or transportability, as our units offer both. Not only are our portable oxygen generator systems functional, they are extremely effective at producing the purity of oxygen required for medical use. In fact, they are FDA approved as a Class II medical device, so doctors and patients can rely on their purity.
The military risks their lives every day, and with the help of POGS from On Site Gas Systems, many of these lives can be saved, even in the most extreme conditions.
