Molecular characterization takes time

Companies cannot waste valuable time on expensive techniques to determine properties of molecules.

We are using artificial intelligence to predict the activity of molecules such as pesticides. Our proprietary algorithms can sift through terabytes of data to pinpoint specific structures and properties that give rise to optimal properties.

Differential Mobility Spectroscopy

Differential mobility spectrometry (DMS) is a relatively new technique in ion chromatography, which enables the separation and characterization of compounds in complex mixtures. For example, we can use DMS to quickly determine the properties of pesticides, and we can separate and quantify species of interest in environmental contamination. Our methodology requires very little sample and it is much faster and environmentally friendly than traditional liquid chromatography-based methods.
