Home > Press > Airgas Technical Suites at PITTCON 2008 Promote Lab Efficiency

Abstract:
Airgas, Inc. (NYSE:ARG) announced plans for six free technical suite sessions on improving the efficiency of analytical and life science laboratories to be held at the 2008 Pittsburgh Conference (PITTCON) in New Orleans, LA from March 3 - 6, 2008.

Airgas Technical Suites at PITTCON 2008 Promote Lab Efficiency

RADNOR, PA | Posted on March 3rd, 2008

Attendees can register for the sessions in Seminar Room 33 by visiting the Airgas booth #2755 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The hour-long sessions will include:

Helium vs. Hydrogen as a Carrier Gas

Len Sidisky, R & D manager in Supelco's Gas Separations Business Unit, and Frank Kandl, Airgas' technical manager for specialty gas equipment, will compare helium and hydrogen as carrier gases in gas chromatography and their effects on the speed of analysis, selectivity, resolution, sensitivity, and safety of use. The session also will provide options for reducing helium usage. The session will be held Monday, 2 p.m.; Tuesday, 3 p.m.; and Wednesday, 11 a.m.

How to Reduce Gas Usage and the Effects of Contamination

Frank Kandl and Nick Wojnicz, P.E., Airgas' manager for specialty gas engineering solutions, will provide valuable information for cutting gas usage by 25 percent, as well as ways to improve the performance of gas carriers without altering gas service or processes. This session also will reveal the effects of contamination on gas carriers and provide tips to prevent contamination. This session will be held Monday, 3 p.m; Wednesday, 9:30 a.m.; and Thursday 11 a.m.

Gas Delivery Systems for Nanotechnology

This session by Frank Kandl and Nick Wojnicz will discuss state-of-the-art, turnkey solutions for research and development laboratories using carbon nanotube and wire synthesis equipment, including the related gas and chemical distribution and abatement systems. This seminar will be held Tuesday, 9:30 a.m.

Designing Greater Efficiency into a New or Existing Lab Using a Risk-Based Approach

Learn how to design a more efficient laboratory by integrating a central gas supply and customized gas management from supply mode to point-of-use service, with highly accurate gas monitoring. Nick Wojnicz also will discuss how to incorporate all the necessary safety compliance requirements into lab plans. This session will be held Tuesday, 11 a.m. and Thursday, 1 p.m.

Taking the Headaches and Hassles Out of Gas Management Life Sciences

Kris Cackette, Airgas' business manager for life sciences, will demonstrate more effective and efficient ways to free up valuable time in a life sciences laboratory through easy cylinder tracking methods, automatic nitrogen-level monitoring, and all-new engineering solutions for gas management. This session will be held Tuesday and Wednesday at 1:30 p.m.; and Thursday at 9 a.m.

A Fresh, New Approach to Procurement and Supply

Tony Litwinchuk, Airgas' national sales manager for general industries, and Greg Nuyen, national program manager for the new Airgas Inventory Management system (AIM™), will discuss how these custom solutions from Airgas OUTLOOK® Services can solve supply chain management challenges relating to gases, equipment, and safety products while driving out costs. This session will be held Wednesday at 3 p.m. and Thursday at 10 a.m.

"Airgas is pleased to offer these technical suite sessions to help PITTCON attendees discover ways we are engineering the right solutions for analytical and life science laboratories," said Jim Muller, senior vice president for specialty gases and life sciences for Airgas. "These sessions also demonstrate the breadth of specialty gas and equipment expertise that we provide to laboratories nationwide."

All participants in Airgas' technical suite sessions will be entered automatically for two drawings to win an Apple® iPod™. Additional information on the drawings, the technical suites, and on Airgas' specialty gases, equipment and service offerings will be available at Airgas booth #2755.
