Originally created to monitor airborne carbon nanotubes and graphene, we have built on our design over time and developed Identifiers that are suitable for detecting a variety of materials. Our basic system can be configured to use with many materials.
Stat Peel’s Identifier
Material-selective detection system
Carbon Nanotube & Graphene monitoring
The C2 is the updated version of our original detection device, which was specifically designed to recognize airborne CNTs and graphene. Monitoring exposure of these potentially harmful fibers and platelets is a must-do in any occupational environment.
Our detection system is designed to recognize airborne silica, which can be extremely harmful to the lungs. In fact, the Greeks and Romans realized centuries ago how damaging silica dust was. Silica dust is widely created in construction, maritime and general industry.
Modern battery materials
Continuing advances in battery technology involve new methods and materials, among them nanomaterials. Nanofibers and nanoplatelets can increase the storage capacity and reduce the weight of batteries and capacitors, making them ideal for use in batteries. As the battery industry continues to grow, monitoring workplace exposure to novel materials is essential to safety.
Nanocellulose fiber monitoring
Our detection system is designed to recognize cellulose nanocrystal, which ongoing research shows can be harmful if inhaled. Although it is derived from wood and considered a green material, its size and shape make it potentially dangerous because it is easy to breathe in.
Easily monitor exposure
Stat Peel’s Identifier detection system monitors personal exposure to potentially harmful airborne particles. Our Raman spectroscopy approach is ideal for advanced materials because it is material-selective and all analysis can be done in-house.
Badges can be worn by employees to monitor personal exposure, as well as placed in specific locations within a facility to monitor release. Each badge is about the size and weight of a phone, so it is easy to wear throughout the workday. There is a small opening that allows air to flow through to the filtration slide.
Filtration slides with specially developed membranes are used to gather particles from the filtered air. Each slide has one, two or three membranes to collect the respirable particle fraction. The appropriate number of membranes is determined by how “clean” a facility is. Each slide has a barcode so it can be traced to a certain user, and the slides can be archived to provide an additional record of compliance.
