Gas mixtures of the highest calibre and purity are necessary for the calibration of analytical tools and gas detectors. Calibrations must be routinely checked to ensure that devices are performing as they should for many applications, be it forensic analysis or safety devices.

Many analytical or gas safety devices operate with a combination of gases. When a single device is intended to function with a combination of gases, the calibration procedure must take into account every gas that will be utilized.
Calibration can become a laborious and time-consuming operation for detectors used in applications like air pollution monitoring, where a single device may monitor up to five separate gaseous species.
Using approved gas mixtures is one way to get around the issue of having to test device performance with different gases. In a single cylinder, high-quality gas mixtures can contain a number of gaseous species in defined proportions and concentrations.
The appropriate gas mixture is useful for more than just instrument calibration; it is also utilized in many other industries to create modified atmospheres for food preservation and to create ideal conditions for engineering procedures like laser cutting and welding.
