Chip-sized chemical detection
Using leading-edge microfabrication techniques, Owlstone has developed a complete chemical detection system on a chip.
By detecting chemicals in breath and bodily fluids, Owlstone technology promises to revolutionize healthcare.
At-line detection and measurement
Portability and ease-of-use make Owlstone technology ideal for process control applications in the oil and gas industry.
Our technology is the new frontier of chemical detection, bringing laboratory-quality analysis to the battlefield.
Reconfigurable, sensitive and rapid
Our products are already finding applications from food monitoring to water quality analysis, and that's only the beginning.
Owlstone - Chemical Detection and Sensing
Owlstone's ‘dime size’ Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometer (FAIMS) has the ability to rapidly monitor a broad range of chemicals at very low quantities with high confidence.
- Detect multiple gases simultaneously in under a second
- Detection levels below part per billion (ppb)
- Sensor can be reprogrammed to detect new gases through software, even after deployment. Hardware stays the same.
- Unique 2D chemical signature dramatically reduces false alarms
By significantly reducing the cost and complexity of building devices to detect specific chemical agents, Owlstone opens up an exciting new world of chemical sensing applications. Smaller, lighter and more versatile than the competition, Owlstone sensing technology takes chemical detection into the 21st century.
