Peak Scientific is
proud to introduce the ABN2ZA and AB-3G Nitrogen Generators.
Both the ABN2ZA and
the AB-3G Nitrogen Generators are specifically designed to operate LCMS
Instruments manufactured by Applied Biosystems/ MDS Sciex. These new products
produce Nitrogen and Dry Air through 3 independent outputs in the required flow
rates, purities and pressures to cater for the requirements of all available
Applied Biosystems/ MDS Sciex LCMS Models, including the new API5500.
Each of these new
models essentially combine two separate gas generator systems in one unit with
the source and exhaust gases (Dry Air) being generated by one system using one
system and the curtain gas (Nitrogen) being generated by the other. The ABN2ZA
and the AB-3G utilize proven gas technology that selectively removes oxygen,
moisture and other gases to leave clean, dry, phthalate free Nitrogen and Air.
compressors make the ABN2ZA a stand- alone, self- sufficient Nitrogen
Generator, independent from external air sources, whereas the AB- 3G has been
designed with additional compressor capacity. This additional capacity allows
us to cycle the compressors more frequently, maximising compressor life. In the
unlikely event of one compressor failing, the internal control system will
alert the user and manage the compressors to maintain a full output flow from
the generator. This totally unique feature will allow the user to plan a
service or repair visit with Peak Scientific, thus ensuring uninterrupted
uptime of your LCMS.
Peak Scientific has tested these new
models extensively at our manufacturing plant and with end users around the
world to ensure reliability and longevity of the systems.
For example Borislav Starcevic, UCLA
Olympic Analytical, USA commented about the AB- 3G:
“We had opportunity to test a new model of
Peak Scientific Nitrogen generator for the last 6 months in our laboratory. Our
laboratory is a busy lab as our instruments work 24/7. In the LCMS department
of our laboratory we currently have 5 LC/MS/MS instruments all by
AppliedBiosystems/Sciex: and we use nitrogen generators for all of them. We
have four NM20ZA models and one N300DR model. The new model was connected to
API4000QT which we use for service and for research. In comparison with the
older models we found the new one to be less noisy and more reliable. …
Overall we were
satisfied with the unit and think that it is better than the older ones that we
have in our laboratory.”
MDS Sciex have further approved these products to supply Nitrogen and Dry Air
to all of their LCMS Applications.
Peak Gas Generators
are unique in that they are simple to install and easy to use. After initial
installation and set up, the generator will operate continuously with virtually
no operator involvement and optimum performance can be maintained with an
annual service visit. Elimination of the purchasing process, storage and
movement of cylinders will also significantly reduce the time and costs
associated with supplying gas to an LCMS System.
