New Universal Carbon Detector Technology, the Polyarc Reactor, Can Now be Purchased Through Activated Research Company.

Eden Prairie, MN, March 16, 2016 – Activated Research Company (ARC) has recently launched their flagship product, the Polyarc™ reactor. The 3D-printed catalytic microreactor is a break-through universal carbon detector technology for gas chromatography. The technology enhances existing GC/FIDs by converting all organic compounds to methane molecules prior to their detection by the FID, resulting in a universal FID response.

Using a Polyarc reactor improves GC/FID performance, reduces operating costs, enables quantification without calibration standards, improves accuracy and detects compounds with little or no previous FID sensitivity. Since its very recent launch, the Polyarc™ reactor has received international awards due to its innovative nature and the benefits it offers to scientists.

“We are honored the Polyarc reactor has received multiple international awards since our recent product launch and applaud organizations who recognize innovative technologies through their annual awards,” says Andrew Jones, ARC’s Partner and Co-Founder. “We are pleased with the positive feedback from our existing customers and are encouraged by the significant interest in the Polyarc reactor.”
