The laws revolving around pharmacopeia gas specifications are strict and methods were established based on Pharma (Europe), UL (USA) and JP (Japan) standards with these standards governing how medicinal gases are analysed and recorded.

AGC Instruments offers various solutions based on the above standards.  Through use of our industry proven NovaCHROM GC’s using TCD or FID, our solution will meet the analytical requirements outlined by the above authorities. For example, for N2 Pharmacopoeia, AGC Instruments has devised a NovaCHROM 4000 system linked to a Solenoid Control Unit and TrendVision PLUS Chromatography Software. This system was designed to meticulously follow European Pharmacopoeia Standards for the Quality Control of Nitrogen (N2) for medical use and it employs comprehensive methodologies and fail-safes. AGC can design and implement a system whilst liaising with the customer to detail all technologies employed to satisfy the safety protocols required in this industry.

Some of the gases which follow strict protocols include:

Oxygen (O2)
Nitrous Oxide (N2O)
Nitrogen (N2)
Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
Helium (He)
Nitric Oxide (NO)
