June 2017

NEW AUTOFLOW BET+
A brand new rapid and high-throughput, multi-point surface area analyzer that works without vacuum. Designed around microelectronics and micro-sensors, this modular product represents dynamic flow gas sorption re-imagined: one, two or three analysis stations, each having its own gas blending capability for fully independent and simultaneous operation. more.


June 2017

New 3-STATION AUTOSORB-iQ:
The Autosorb-iQ, our premier manometric gas sorption analyzer, is now available with up to THREE fully micropore-capable analysis stations. Each sample position is equipped with its own set of pressure transducers (no sharing) which include either a 1torr (MP) or 0.1torr (XR) sensor (in addition to 10 and 1000 torr transducers). Plus, each Autosorb-iQ now comes with FOUR built-in and dedicated degassing ports, regardless of the number of analysis ports. For more information on the upgraded and new-look Autosorb-iQ. more.
