Company description

At Trace Matters, we are making the first lab-grade miniature mass-spec chemical analyzer. Our technology is based on the gold-standard of chemical analysis, mass spectrometry. But unlike existent full-size lab-grade mass spectrometers available at laboratories, our device is portable, affordable, and can operate in-line, real-time. And unlike existent mini mass-specs, it is lab-grade: it can analyze non-volatile substances, has a part-per-trillion sensitivity and lab-grade resolution.
