Applied Markets

We help environmental and food manufacturing labs identify contaminants in food, air, soil and water through our detection systems and services to help ensure compliance.

Detecting Contaminants for Better Health

Better insights into the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat can make all the difference.

The ability to rapidly detect known and unknown contaminants in our food, water, and air or to monitor their quality consistently is an important part of ensuring the health of our environment. In addition, chemicals, advanced materials, and nanomaterials are playing an increasingly important role in our environment. Our systems and services help scientists understand all these complexities and ensure compliance.

For testing labs, our solutions help to monitor everything from organic and radioactive contaminants to trace and toxic metals in materials and the environment. And food manufacturers use our systems to help to detect or screen for important factors such as ingredient adulteration or dilution as well as food safety and quality, helping food processors protect their customers and the integrity of their brands.
