Part-per-trillion Sensitivity in a Battery-powered Lunch-Box Size Instrument

Introducing the new MIRA Pico COS portable analyzer from Aeris Technologies, Inc. The Pico COS analyzer is a giant leap forward in gas sensing : ppt sensitivity, COS measurement displaying an absolute accuracy at the tens of ppt level without the need for temperature control, no calibration required, real time and autonomous operation, extreme linearity over multiple decades of concentration, portable, battery-powered, and at a fraction of the cost of analytical solutions displaying comparable performance.

In addition of sharing all the great features of the MIRA Pico platform, the Pico COS analyzer uses a unique and proprietary differential approach allowing to cancel out temperature-induced drifts in the reported COS concentration. The system uses a dual inlet valve switching continuously back and forth between the unaltered air sample and the COS-scrubbed sample. The result is an unprecedented analytical tool reporting ambient carbonyl sulfide concentration in real time (1 measurement cycle per minute).
