A portable gas chromatograph (GC) is a compact, lightweight version of a traditional GC that is designed to be easily transported and used in the field. The advantages of a portable GC:
1) Portability: The main advantage of a portable GC is its portability. It can be easily transported to remote locations or used in the field, providing real-time analysis in a variety of settings. Our customers at Diageo use the Mayura Analytical portable GC model PHR to test the quality of whiskey. Right at the production point, surprise spot tests are conducted to ensure no adulteration happens especially in outsourced production sites.
2) Quick Results: A portable GC can provide quick results, with analyses typically taking minutes to hours. This allows for rapid decision-making and on-site troubleshooting. Our customer at Shiva Analyticals Bangalore carries the Mayura Analytical portable GC PNitro to various pharma sites all over Bangalore to test and approve the quality of Nitrogen cylinder banks before accepting N2 into production.
3) Reduced Sample Handling: Portable GCs often require less sample handling and preparation than traditional GCs, reducing the risk of contamination and saving time. When sampling the gas, it is important that the sample collection is done without any environmental contact or exposure so as to ensure that the real impurity profile is captured. Gas transportation with gas sampling bomb, gas sampling bag, such as Tedler bags, are prone to cross contamination. Regular Gas Chromatographs are quite bulky to be taken close the cylinder bank and it is impractical for the cylinders themselves to be carried into the laboratory.
4) Lower Cost: Portable GCs are often less expensive than traditional GCs, making them a more cost-effective option for some applications. A portable GC typically saves you 25%-40% off the cost of a regular GC for certain applications.
5) Versatility: Portable GCs can be used for a wide range of applications, including environmental monitoring, food and beverage analysis, and pharmaceutical testing. Wide range of customers use the Mayura Analytical portable GC from Diageo, Testing laboratories to Pharma majors.
6) Real-Time Monitoring: Portable GCs can provide real-time monitoring of gas concentrations, making them ideal for applications where quick and accurate results are critical.
7) User-Friendly: Portable GCs are often designed with user-friendliness in mind, with intuitive interfaces and simple operation. This makes them accessible to a wider range of users, including those with limited technical expertise.
A portable GC offers a number of advantages over traditional GCs, including portability, quick results, reduced sample handling, lower cost, versatility, real-time monitoring, and user-friendliness. These advantages make portable GCs an attractive option for a wide range of applications where on-site analysis is required.
