Analox Sensor Technology will be exhibiting and speaking at Nordic Life Science Days from 14 to 15 September. The annual conference is being held at Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre in Sweden and provides many opportunities to network with peers, potential partners and investors associated with the life science sector. This year Nordic Life Science Days encompasses conference sessions, panel discussions, … Continue reading
Find out more about our wide range of oxygen/nitrogen and carbon dioxide gas detectors today, or contact us for more information. We attend a lot of exhibitions and industry showcases, where we take the opportunity to share our knowledge of gas monitoring and network with like-minded people. On our return, we take the time to fill in a short document … Continue reading
We’re attending and presenting at Nordic Life Science Days from 14-15 September this year. Find out more about how gas detection is critical when managing a laboratory. Did you know, just a small 1% leak of carbon dioxide (CO2) can cause drowsiness? Or that if one cylinder of nitrogen (N2) were to leak, the level of oxygen (O2) in the … Continue reading
These gases have many 'super' uses, but close monitoring is essential.
For those familiar with the superhero genre, you’ve probably heard of Superman, otherwise known as Clark Kent. The fictional character has been entertaining the masses since the 1930’s, and possesses several powers including flight, super-strength, super-speed and x-ray vision. In all forms of media, the Man of Steel’s origin has always been the alien planet Krypton before he was sent … Continue reading
Imperial College London said that the O2NE+ oxygen defiency monitor was "simple to setup" and "fulfilled our requirements well"
Introduction For personnel safety, monitoring of oxygen levels was required as part of an experimental field campaign based at Cranfield airfield. This experiment was undertaken by researchers in the atmospheric physics group at Imperial College London. The researchers are interested in measuring Far-infrared radiance fields in the atmosphere in order to better understand atmospheric heating/cooling effects of high level cirrus clouds and water vapour. To … Continue reading
Oxygen is the only gas we breathe that supports life. In the air a normal concentration of oxygen is 21%, while the rest of the atmosphere is made up of 78% nitrogen and trace gases. Inert gases such argon and helium, as well as nitrogen, are not toxic, but they do not support human breathing and reduce levels of … Continue reading
Hei Norge! Becca at the VWR day.
In October the Analox Sensor Technology team visited and exhibited to an audience of renowned laboratory and medical equipment distributors at the VWR show in Oslo, Norway. The team went with the intention of spreading the safety message when using different gases in confined spaces. It was found that gas detection was suggested as a borderline product for standard lab … Continue reading
A helium atom walks into a bar and the bartender says "we don't serve noble gases here." Helium doesn't react.
Throughout 2014 an international helium shortage was causing major supply disruptions around the globe. Many customers in healthcare, pharmaceuticals, commercial diving, science, defence and the semiconductor industry were struggling to find reliable sources at any price. And despite the 2013 US Government’s Helium Stewardship Act, the market was unable to meet demand. In October 2014 Analox published this letter: ‘Helium … Continue reading
Inert gases are back under the spotlight following three fatalities at a South Korean power plant in December. Unlike toxic gases such as carbon monoxide, inert gases are non-toxic at normal atmospheric concentrations. The danger lies in their ability to deplete oxygen from the ambient air – especially when used in confined spaces. A nitrogen leak is believed to have … Continue reading
Going under the sea with Under the Pole
Analox are proud to support the fantastic Under the Pole II, a series of underwater polar expeditions that aim to explore the hidden side of the Arctic and Antarctic regions. By taking a new approach to exploring the stunning diversity of these unique landscapes, Under the Pole II aims to give the world a better understanding of the environment whilst providing … Continue reading
