When I’m buying a toxic gas detection instrument or system, why do I need applications engineering?

Very simply, since no two toxic gas detection applications are the same. We admit that this concept has been obscured under the quite false rubric that “All gas detection is confined entry.” Certainly, a goodly percentage of all portable gas detection instruments are designed as if they are intended for the confined entry app. These…

Predominant EtO Monitoring Methods Used By Hospitals

Gas detection methods have been changing and evolving and awareness has heightened as well, along with the ever changing methods of sterilization. To answer your question regarding what “most” hospitals are using to monitor EtO, a fair response would be narrowed down to either electrochemical sensors or gas chromatographs (GCs). Interscan has sold close to…

A rebuttal to the ChemDAQ vs. Interscan table from ChemDAQ’s website

ChemDAQ, a manufacturer of ethylene oxide (EtO) monitoring systems, has posted a pdf of a comparison matrix on its website, pitting their systems against ours. Fair enough. We felt it only proper to reproduce their table, adding a fourth column with our comments. Since the tabular format is not ideally suited to detailed remarks, a…
