Activated Research Company® (ARC) was founded in 2014 with a mission to create catalytic products for our customers to improve the accuracy and overall cost of chemical analysis. Catalysts act as molecular highways that speed and direct chemical reactions to occur advantageously. Our first product, the Polyarc® system, is a breakthrough innovation that combines catalysis with chemical analysis to revolutionize 60 year old GC/FID technology. Launched in 2015, the Polyarc is the world’s first commercial 3D printed reactor.
