LABORATORY AND RESEARCH

RAPID SAMPLING AND ANALYSIS WITH COMPREHENSIVE RESULTS IMPROVES THE STUDY AND DETECTION OF VOCS.

RAPID, COMPREHENSIVE RESULTS

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are numerous, varied, and ubiquitous, including both human-made and naturally occurring chemical compounds. Some VOCs are dangerous to human health and harmful to the environment. Monitoring VOCs on-site with immediate results makes it possible to detect the presence of small concentrations of VOCs before they become a larger problem.
Traditional gas chromatography is slow and requires much training and experience. NovaTest devices expedite the process by allowing users to target specific compounds of interest. The user-friendly interface and automated sampling and analysis also make the devices easy to use without previous GC experience. These features give the NovaTest products versatility in laboratory applications, especially where rapid results are desired. The ability to test ambient air or water on-site could be useful in conducting environmental impact assessments, while the ability to continuously monitor for VOCs could be useful in long-term atmospheric and climate studies.
The NovaTest P100 & P300 can rapidly sample and analyze ambient air in any location, making it a useful device for air quality testing. They are capable of detecting a wide range of compounds with high sensitivity in a single test, and the system automatically generates an instant report with calculated results. These features can be used to quickly assess the air quality conditions in a specific location so that they can be addressed as quickly and effectively as possible.
The NovaTest W1000 also offers continuous online monitoring capabilities for effective water monitoring. Using a purge and trap system, the W1000 can sample and analyze VOCs in water autonomously and alert users when target compounds exceed a certain threshold. Continuous, real-time analysis provides immediate feedback, making it possible to monitor changing conditions over time and quickly address any water quality issues to protect the health and safety of surrounding communities.

BREATH RESEARCH

Various metabolic processes produce VOCs as byproducts which can be used as biomarkers to indicate certain conditions. Breath analysis is a particularly useful technique because it is non-invasive and could be used to screen for conditions before more serious symptoms occur.
