Picarro to Feature Gas Concentration Product Offerings and New High Throughput Modes for the L2130-i Isotopic Water Analyzer at Virtual AGU Fall Meeting

Santa Clara, CA — November 18, 2020 — Picarro Inc., a leading provider of gas concentration and stable isotope analyzers and systems for science and industrial applications, will once again be participating in the annual American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting. The AGU Fall Meeting will be one of the world's largest virtual scientific conferences and is scheduled from December 1-17. Picarro is excited to support this year’s theme of “Shaping the Future of Science” with a sneak preview of two new measurement modes for the L2130-i isotopic water analyzer that enable higher throughput. Picarro technologists will also be available to answer questions live about the full portfolio including the popular G4301 and G2508 gas concentration analyzers.

The following Picarro poster presentation has been accepted for this year’s event:

  • Advances in Methods and Technologies for Emission Monitoring and Exposure Assessment to Hazardous Air Pollutants 
  • Tuesday, 15 December 2020; 04:00 - 20:59 (Abstract Number: A175-0012)

Picarro isotope and gas concentration analyzers that will be featured include:

The Picarro L2130-i Analyzer with New Express and Survey Modes delivers high-precision measurements for advanced research into all aspects of the water cycle―water vapor, liquid water or water trapped in solids―and for demanding applications such as paleoclimatology and oceanography. The new Express mode will allow measurements of up to 50 samples per day while maintaining an excellent precision level. The new Survey mode will allow measurements of up to 150 samples per day.

The Picarro G2508 Gas Concentration Analyzer provides simultaneous, precise measurement of nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), ammonia (NH3), and water (H2O) vapor at parts-per-billion (ppb) sensitivity with negligible drift for agriculture soil science, ecology, and emissions quantification. It operates in open or closed systems, and it easily integrates with chamber systems.

The Picarro G4301 GasScouter™ Mobile Gas Concentration Analyzer is a new generation extra-lightweight and portable, battery-powered analyzer designed for science on the move. It enables the simultaneously measurement of CO2, CH4 and H2O concentrations over a wide dynamic range, allowing effective background, emissions, and soil flux measurements, among many potential applications.
