VUV Analytics (Cedar Park, Texas) is collaborating with Caltech Environmental Analysis Center (EAC) in Pasadena, California, in a closed-ended project that explores new application capabilities using VUV’s VGA-100 Vacuum Ultraviolet (VUV) detector. The Caltech EAC is an open-access, user-operated laboratory based in the Environmental Sciences and Engineering Program, with the primary focus on research and analytical methods using mass spectrometry, gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, ion chromatography, and capillary electrophoresis.

Nathan Dalleska, director of the EAC said in a statement, “We are very excited to be partnering with VUV Analytics on this unique collaboration opportunity.” He noted that the research would focus on applying novel VUV absorption spectroscopy methods to identifying compounds and classes of compounds with much greater levels of sensitivity and selectivity compared to other approaches.
