A gas analysis consists of the identification and quantification of the compounds present in the latter. Depending on the chemical family of the compounds to be analyzed, the methods to be implemented are different. It is therefore preferable to know the compounds a priori present in order to limit the analyzes carried out to what is really necessary. Otherwise, the analysis can be carried out in a broader way, which generates more analytical work and therefore much higher costs.

Calibration for quantitation
The quantification of compounds sometimes requires the purchase of standards for each of the compounds, when they exist. Otherwise, the quantifications can be carried out in an estimated way, by considering the calibration data of chemically similar compounds.
