or more information

We offer argon and argon gas mixtures in various volumes and purities for your analysis and quality control needs.


Argon (Ar) is a colourless, odourless, inert gas. As argon is an atmospheric gas, it can be sourced by separating it from air. Argon is used in pure form or in mixtures in hospitals for analysis and quality control.

More particularly, argon is used as plasma gas in Inductive Coupled Plasma (ICP) emission spectrometry, as a blanket gas in Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (GFAAS), and as a carrier gas in gas chromatography for various detectors.
