As a world leader in technology for laboratory instrumentation for analysis of trace level organic chemicals, the name MARKES is a byword for the highest quality and outstanding technical expertise. The product range falls into two interlinked fields: thermal desorption and mass spectrometry. Using our thermal desorption products, volatile organic chemicals released into the environment by a wide range of products can be collected and concentrated and thereby identified, even when only minute traces are present. This technology has applications in a wide range of scenarios including detection of hazardous chemicals in the environment, determining toxic emissions from consumer products and food quality control. It is also used in the military sphere and in forensic medicine. Our instruments are also increasingly used in a range of vital research fields such as the diagnosis of diseases, agricultural science, and atmospheric chemistry.
Our time-of-flight mass spectrometer is used successfully in many areas for the detection and identification of organic substances, and is therefore continuously being improved and developed. The remarkable measuring sensitivity of our devices enables users to detect substances even in small amounts. And to round off the range, we also develop innovative software that simplifies and speeds up the automated identification of chemicals.
