Would a paramagnetic or laser oxygen analyzer be able to detect all possible contaminants or impurities in a medical gas? No. Although, paramagnetic and laser oxygen analyzers are very accurate and reliable when calibrated correctly, these types of analyzers can only detect the identification and strength of oxygen. They are unable to detect contaminants or impurities that may be present, such as hydrocarbons or arsenic compounds. For more information see this document from the FDA.
