We get tanks from Air Liquide that are routinely near -200 per mil. We
have also started making our own tailored cylinders by purchasing a cheap
tank of D-poor hydrogen and then spiking it with a small amount of pure HD
to bring it to a composition more similar to our unknowns (this is
particularly helpful for studies of exotic materials, like H2 in air, that
are very D-rich).
