We don't have anything against mass spectrometry.

We just think it's time for a worthy alternative.

What's so revolutionary about Vacuum Ultraviolet gas spectroscopy?

VUV Analytics: Making Vacuum Ultraviolet absorption spectroscopy available to the general scientific community for the first time.
As in, ever.

It brings gas analysis out of the dark ages.

  • Finally, a universal detector that's sensitive, selective, and headache-free.
  • 1 Universal detector for identification and quantification.
  • It's easy to use.
    We repeat: Easy. To. Use.
  • Uniquely identifies previously difficult compounds, including isomers.
The VGA-100 GC-VUV Detector

How does it work?
Easy. It's all about absorption spectroscopy.

  • Very fast sampling. (Up to 100Hz.)
  • Excellent temporal resolution.
  • No ionization means minimal sample degradation.
  • Kiss calibration hassles goodbye, with the unique ability to model and accurately predict detector response.
  • Resolve co-eluting analytes & quit worrying about trying to achieve baseline resolved chromatography.

The vacuum ultraviolet spectrum opens up a wide spectrum of advantages. Most vapors absorb little to none in the UV-VIS, while everything absorbs strongly in the VUV.

So who benefits from VUV Analytics technology?

Anyone who relies on gas chromatography and has had it up to here with poor quantification, ambiguous compound identification results, regular system maintenance and burdensome calibrations. Including, but not limited to, the good folks who work in:

The words you thought you'd never hear.
Powerful spectroscopy with functional simplicity.

Continuously and rapidly acquires full spectroscopic absorption data from ~120nm to 240nm.

Integrates data across the entire ~120nm to 240nm range and presents it as a single chromatographic response.

Data can be integrated across specific regions of interest, to enhance a compound response and reduce the impact of the background matrix.

Strong and unique absorption cross-sections of gas molecules in the VUV regime.

Easily integrates onto most any gas chromatography instrument. Compatible with all common carrier gases.

Minimal facilities, limited moving parts, easy maintenance and no vacuum pumps results in a very low cost of ownership.
