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 instrument, volatile organic chemicals present in the air, water or consumer goods can be collected and concentrated, enabling them to be detected even when they are present in minute amounts. This technology has applications in a wide range of scenarios, including detection of hazardous chemicals in the environment, determining toxic emissions from consumer products, food quality control, for military applications, and in forensic science. Our instruments are also increasingly used in a range of vital research fields, such as the diagnosis of diseases, chemical ecology, and atmospheric chemistry.
Our time-of-flight mass spectrometers allow organic chemicals to be reliably identified and measured, and are used successfully in many areas. Their remarkable sensitivity enables users to detect substances even in small amounts, and are complemented by innovative software that simplifies and speeds up automated identification.
