Industrial Monitoring

  • Many chemical and industrial processes cause emissions of VOCs

  • Some VOCs are toxic or even carcinogenic, posing a serious health hazard to workers

  • Existing methods for assessment of VOC exposure, however, have major limitations

  • Conventional GC instruments, although providing high specificity and sensitivity, are bulky and expensive to purchase, operate, and maintain, typically require offline sampling, and are thus not convenient or cost- effective for on-site monitoring applications

  • Currently, there is a critical unmet need for specific monitoring of VOC exposure in an autonomous and continuous manner
