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 P300 can rapidly sample and analyze ambient air in any location, making it a useful device for air quality testing. The P300 is 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 A1000 provides the online monitoring solutions needed for continuous air quality monitoring. The A1000 can sample and analyze ambient air autonomously and alert users when target compounds exceed a certain threshold. Continuous, real-time analysis provides immediate feedback, making it possible to examine changing conditions over time and identify pollution sources or events.
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.

FIELD TESTING SOLUTION

The NovaTest P300 – Compact gas chromatograph capable of detecting trace concentrations of VOCs

RAPID

The P300 needs only 2 minutes to analyze BTEX samples, saving considerable sampling and analysis time

RELIABLE

The system automatically identifies peaks and generates an instant report in just minutes while maintaining high resolution and accuracy. The FWHM (full width at half maximum) for each component does not exceed 5 seconds.

EFFICIENT

Testing requires only your P300. The P300 will pump in the surrounding air automatically without the need for additional sampling equipment. Analysis can be completed using built-in test methods without entering numerous parameters.

CONTINUOUS MONITORING SOLUTION

The NovaTest A1000 – Online gas chromatograph capable of detecting trace concentrations of VOCs

CONTINUOUS, UNATTENDED, REMOTE MONITORING

The A1000 provides rapid and comprehensive analysis of VOCs with high sensitivity and accuracy. It can be operated remotely, saving considerable time and money with autonomous sampling and testing.

ADVANCED SOTWARE

The NovaSoft software is designed to be a powerful tool for the user while also being easy to use. System parameters are preset to optimize performance, and resulting data is automatically analyzed to generate quantified results.

EFFICIENT

A1000 is designed to operate unattended for extended periods of time and therefore requires very little maintenance. Sampling, testing, and cleaning procedures are performed automatically.

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.
