With the global warming concerns, it is more and more critical to measure the nitrous oxide (N2O) concentration in the ambient air.
The use of the PlasmaDetek-E is for the measurement of extremely low concentration of N2O in ambient air without interference.
It is well known that the measurement of N2O can be achieved with different kinds of detectors using specific chromatography techniques. The ECD, HID and conventional PED are the mostly used type of detectors for this greenhouse application. The radioactive source coming from the ECD makes this detector less attractive due to the latest worldwide regulations about radioactivity, even for low source of radioactivity. The HID and conventional PED are relatively good detectors for such analysis, but create more chromatography challenges caused by lack of selectivity and sensitivity.
With the PlasmaDetek-E, the enhanced sensitivity and selectivity make it the ideal tool for measuring extremely low concentration N2O sensitivity and selectivity make it the ideal tool for measuring extremely low concentration N2O in ambient air with reduced interference mostly coming from the high in ambient air with reduced interference mostly coming from the high concentration carbon dioxide and moisture.
