Tell us about yourself and your role in the company

I am a Chemical Engineer graduated from UAM (Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana). With 24 years of experience in Gas Chromatography, I started working with GC in the IMP (Mexican Institute of Petroleum) analyzing Hydrocarbons and its derivatives.

I have been working in the Quality Control Lab in INFRA for 11 years, 90% of the total products produced in the Barrientos Plant are being analyzed in my lab on a daily basis.

Tell us what SCION product(s) you have purchased and why you chose to purchase them?

We have 5 456 GCs (the 456 is the previous generation of our current 8500 GC model). SCION Instruments was selected to renew all the GCs in the lab to continue with the Varian legacy, besides this fact, SCION offered the best price-benefit offer when they initially quoted all GCs.

Describe your analytical / business challenges – and how your SCION products helped you to meet them.

SCION has been a key asset for the PT (proficiency testing) we performed in 2023, showing the best results in this test from a group of laboratories that participated.

RSDs of 0.5% are always obtained when working with the GCs from SCION, even better than the ones we got in the past while working with Varian.

Excellent quality in the EFCs and all other components in the GC.

Working with the SCION GC is also allowing us to keep the certification on the NMX 17025
