Helium is a non-renewable resource. There is a global shortage of helium that has caused prices to increase significantly. Many GC users are switching to hydrogen as a carrier gas.

Hydrogen provides many advantages over helium including, higher resolution, shorter run times, longer column life, and cost savings. Many instrument manufacturers now provide resources to make switching carrier gas easier.

A hydrogen generator is a safe, convenient, and inexpensive solution to storing hydrogen cylinders.
