Picarro Launches New Web Site on Trace Gas and Isotope Instrumentation

Aug 25, 2008, 01:00 ET from Picarro, Inc.

    SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Picarro has launched a new
 web site that provides detailed technical, product, and applications
 information on the company's line of trace gas and isotopic analyzers for
 the environmental, energy, process control and semiconductor markets. In
 particular, the site contains extensive background material on the theory
 and operation of WS-CRDS (Wavelength-Scanned Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy)
 technology, and also provides links to relevant articles and case studies.
 Sample data from each instrument, including models that measure the carbon
 isotope ratio (delta-13C), water vapor isotopes ratios (delta-16O,
 delta-D), various greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane, and
 other gas concentrations are also included.
     "Our portable WS-CRDS technology offers unique capabilities for trace
 gas and isotopic measurements, especially because it delivers greater
 convenience and ease of use than traditional instruments," states Michael
 Woelk, Picarro CEO. "However, we recognize that many customers that could
 benefit from WS-CRDS don't yet understand the technology, or simply aren't
 aware of its simplicity and precision. To address this, we've constructed
 our new web site to provide the information necessary for people to
 understand how this technology works and where it can be employed to
 greatest advantage."
     Picarro, Inc. is a privately held company dedicated to developing
 instrumentation for the highest sensitivity, precision and accuracy
 measurements of specific molecules of interest in environmental analyses,
 process monitoring, and emissions control. The company is a leader in
 wavelength scanned cavity ring down spectroscopy (WS-CRDS) technology with
 eight exclusive licenses from Stanford University patents and nine of its
 own on WS-CRDS extensions. Visit us at http://www.picarro.com.
