Picarro G2508 gas concentration analyzer is a highly advanced instrument specifically designed for agriculture soil science, ecology studies, and emissions quantification. It offers simultaneous and precise measurements of nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), ammonia (NH3), and water vapor (H2O) concentrations in the atmosphere.
The analyzer operates with parts-per-billion (ppb) sensitivity, allowing for excellent rate-of-rise quantification of the target gases. It provides rapid response time and continuous measurements, enabling high temporal resolution data acquisition.
The Picarro G2508 is versatile and can be used in both open and closed systems. It integrates easily with chamber systems, making it suitable for various research applications.
Similar to the previous model mentioned, the G2508 also includes water correction software that automatically reports dry gas mole fractions. This feature helps reduce research complexity and consumable costs associated with water vapor measurements.
The precision of the Picarro G2508 at 1 minute and 5 minutes is as follows: less than 10 ppb and less than 5 ppb for N2O, less than 7 ppb and less than 5 ppb for CH4, less than 300 ppb and less than 200 ppb for CO2, and less than 3 ppb and less than 1 ppb for NH3. These values highlight the instrument’s ability to provide highly accurate and precise measurements for these gases.
In summary, the Picarro G2508 gas concentration analyzer is a state-of-the-art instrument designed for agriculture soil science, ecology, and emissions quantification. Its simultaneous and precise measurements of N2O, CH4, CO2, NH3, and H2O, along with its excellent rate-of-rise quantification and low drift, make it a valuable tool for researchers in these fields. The instrument’s ability to operate in open or closed systems and integrate with chamber systems further enhances its versatility and applicability.
