THE SICRIT TECHNOLOGY IS ABLE TO DETECT ALMOST ANY KIND OF ODOROUS SUBSTANCES WITHIN
In-line process control measurements by mass spectrometry were difficult due to high instrumental and human effort in sample preparation. Up to now there was no real-time measurement of volatile substances and emissions available. SICRIT® now can transform each mass spectrometer into an electronic nose enabling in-line process measurement with several advantages:
Online MS process control
Robust operation (24/7)
No trained personal needed
Automated quality control
Analysis in less than 1 second
Superior level of analytical information
Trainable automated decision making/sorting
Low cost per analysis
Industry 4.0 compatible
Coffee is known to contain more than 300 different aromas, making it hard for the human nose to differentiate. SICRIT®, however, can detect, identify and quantify these compounds in just a single coffee bean in mere seconds! Giving e.g. coffee roasters all information they need to produce individually tailored coffees.
Quality control is one of the most important fields in industrial production in e.g. pharmaceutics. Here SICRIT® can replace lengthy screening or random sampling procedures by contactless online measurements. Saving costs and increasing the quality by controlling every single product (e.g. pill).
Industry is rapidly changing due to an increasing level of automatization. With increasing speed of the production lines, faster and more reliable sensors have to be implemented to control and pilot these processes. SICRIT® offers you the most advanced chemical sensor information at highest analysis speed combined with the robustness for 24/7 operation.
With the demand for faster and cheaper production, the increasing use of fertilizer, pesticides, fungicides and antibiotics is starting to affect consumers' health. Therefore there is a clear need for "clean" food. SICRIT® can detect e.g. pesticides at lowest concentrations enabling manufacturers to screen their vegetables and fruits before selling them and certify that they are e.g. pesticide free.
Non invasive diagnosis based on e.g. breath analysis is an upcoming topic in medicine. By identifying specific biomarkers in the exhaled air, screenings for e.g. lung cancer, metabolic disease or infections may be realised. The superior sensitivity of SICRIT®, the possibility to ionize very nonpolar compounds and the possible combination with portable MS systems makes it the ideal technology in this area.
SECURITY & FORENSICS:
Counterterrorism technology is increasingly important, especially in areas with a huge density of people like airports or train stations. Our technology enables the contactless real time detection of explosives, narcotics and chemical warfare agents, on persons or luggage just walking by.
The anthropogenic entry of harmful volatile organic compounds (VOC) into earth's atmosphere causes many diseases and allergies to humans. The sensitive SICRIT® ionization technique allows for identification and online-quantification of a broad variety of VOCs and is therefore dedicated to monitor indoor air pollution as well as exhaust emissions, e.g. in automotive test bench measurements.
