[This] is really the holy grail of chemical analysis.
Paul DauenhauerProfessor, University of Minnesota
The Polyarc has enabled me to conveniently quantify low levels of formaldehyde with high level of repeatability. So far, I think it's a very powerful analytical tool and greatly improves the performance/sensitivity of the FID for substances like formaldehyde which would rather be difficult or nearly impossible to quantify. The Polyarc reactor is the baby of my research. Abubakar YusufEnergy Technologies PhD Student, The University of Nottingham Ningbo China
When investigating new surfactants, most molecules and intermediates that we synthesize do not have easily obtained standards. As a startup, we need to be able to use our time as efficiently as possible. Calibrating for each compound would waste time and resources. With the Polyarc, we can run samples from a reaction and immediately calculate conversion and selectivity.

The Polyarc is the future of FID. It is to carbon as the SCD is to sulfur without the complexity.

I've been working in the oil and gas field for the past 5 years and I think the Polyarc® reactor will change the industry in the near future. I can see this technology improving many of the current ASTM test methods used in this field.

Solves a problem that is as old as GC.
JudgeThe Analytical Scientist Innovation Award 2015
The Polyarc® reactor is an exciting piece of lab equipment that, in practice, should be installed on every GC to eliminate the need for tedious calibrations and to facilitate closure of carbon balances when unknown species are detected. I am very encouraged by the results and recommend the product.
