Gases play key roles in research, development, scale-up and production in laboratories and life
sciences. The right gases delivered through the right distribution systems improve product uniformity,
quality and yield while reducing cycle times.
A lot of your responsibilities require that you have the right gas at the right time in the right state.
WestAir can provide you with materials and support for the systems you use in a variety of applications:
You need reliable sources N2 (nitrogen) O2 (oxygen) and CO2 (carbon dioxide) to support a wide variety of key processes. Your gases must comply with a variety of quality standards including GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and the FDA.
Nitrogen plays important roles in maintaining process quality. You need gaseous nitrogen for blanketing: protecting processes from moisture intrusion, oxidation, degradation and contamination. Additional uses include purging, pressure transferring, mixing and capturing air emissions. You also need cryogenic liquid nitrogen to control temperature in reactor cooling applications and to preserve biological samples (via lyophilization systems).
Oxygen plays critical roles in cell growth applications in fermenters and bioreactors.
Carbon dioxide is used for a variety of applications including your bench-top incubators. In manufacturing, you use CO2 in fluid chromatography. In wastewater treatment application, you need CO2 for self-buffered pH controls.
