QI® Point Analysis: Gas analyses ensure quality and safeguards patient safety
Linde Healthcare boasts several years' experience carrying out gas analyses on behalf of the hospital sector and pharmaceuticals industry. QI Point Analysis samples and analyses the quality of the medical gases flowing through hospital pipelines to the gas outlet itself.
We provide a wide range of analyses, including medicinal air, medicinal oxygen, carbon dioxide (medical device) and medicinal nitrous oxide. All analyses performed comply with current standards, including the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph.Eur), the Swedish Pharmaceutical Standard (SLS) and SIS HB 370.
We also handle analyses of non-medical gases, including a selection of speciality gases.
It is necessary to perform gas analysis when installing a new central gas system, following maintenance of a pipeline system or as a routine quality inspection.
The analysis service includes sampling, analysis and reporting, and sampling is always performed by Linde Healthcare's certified team. Analysis vessels are always cleaned, inspected and released by the laboratory before being used, and filled vessels are returned by our staff to the laboratory for analysis in accordance with applicable standards. All procedures are fully documented in our quality system. The analysis report is subsequently issued to the client no later than 10 days after the vessel reaches the laboratory. Where results deviate in relation to standard values, you will be contacted no later than 24 hours after this was detected. All analysis reports are archived for 10 years.With our extensive knowledge of gases and gas analysis, we can advise on how, where and when samples should be taken. We have excellent insight into all relevant standards, and our laboratory is audited regularly.
