NUTRISHIELD mentioned in an article in Biophotonics

Nutrishield is progressing in a satisfying way and QuantaRed Technologies is proud that our urine analyser prototype is mentioned in an article in as part of a piece from ALPES. 

The expertise of QuantaRed Technologies lies in the integration of different laser sources into prototypes, useful for society. With the urine analyser we are taking the first steps away from the petrol industry into other sectors who could benefit from this technology.


Launch of the EcoSpec - Oil in Water and Oil in Soil Analyzer 

We are happy to announce that we extend our portfolio at QuantaRed Technologies with our newest analyzer based on a well-known Quantum Cascade Laser technology. The EcoSpec® is designed to quantify hydrocarbons in water or soil in full compliance with the ASTM D7678 using eco-friendly, CFC-free solvents.


Code: Re-farm - Consumer-driven demands to reframe farming systems

The newest project in which QuantaRed is a part of is called “Code: Re-farm”. The goal of the project is to enhance animal welfare and monitor the quality of food by using novel monitoring devices using IR laser sources developed within the project. 


HYDROPTICS – Photonics sensing platform for process optimization in the oil industry

HYDROPTICS aims to develop a reliable and precise monitoring solution for produced water in up- and downstream processing in oil industry. It includes state-of-the-art mid-IR light sources and particle analysis, and will be tested at production sites of our project partners.


ASTM D8290 Standard Test Method published

ASTM International has published a novel Standard Test Method for Determination of Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME) in Aviation Turbine Fuel using Mid-Infrared Laser Spectroscopy:
Check out the FameSpec FAME in jet fuel analyzer – the only analyzer in full compliance with ASTM D8290 in the market.


NUTRISHIELD Human Milk and Urine Analyzer – easy to use alternative to conventional methods

QuantaRed Technologies is tipping its toes into a new topic. After conquering the petrol industry issues, we are now trying to find user friendly solutions in the medical department. Find out what we are planning in the NUTRISHIELD project. 


Nanowatersense - Mid-IR Sensor for Trace Water Detection in Organic Solvents, Oils and Petrochemical Products

QuantaRed is project coordinator of a FFG project called “Nanowatersense”. Within this project, a prototype is developed, which is able to measure water in different organic solvents and petroleum products using Mid-IR laser sources provided by project partners. The aim is to provide an alternative to the Karl-Fisher titration, which does not need reagents, uses lesser consumables and does not need laboratory staff.
