Picarro Launches 2000 Series Gas Analyzers, Setting New Standard for Performance and Ease of Use

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Picarro, the maker of the world's highest precision and easiest to use gas analyzers, unveiled its new 2000 series analyzer platform to meet the needs of the world's most discriminating scientists. Across a wide range of applications including measurements of greenhouse gases, isotopic carbon dioxide and isotopic water and water vapor, Picarro has raised the bar even higher for analyzer accuracy and sensitivity while making it even easier to perform world-class measurements in any environment. "Our goal is to give our customers the best measurement tools on the planet, bar none," says Michael Woelk, CEO of Picarro. "That means relentlessly improving instrument precision, accuracy, usability, and reliability to meet the most exacting needs of the scientific, industrial and regulatory communities."

These best-in-class analyzers are 30% smaller and consume 30% less power than previous generations of Picarro analyzer products. The 2000 series also carries numerous unique features that enhance measurement precision and credibility or improve ease of use. Picarro's exclusive automated water correction software eliminates the need for sample gas drying to correct for water vapor, dramatically simplifying data collection and reducing consumable costs. Picarro's exclusive ChemCorrect(TM) software automatically flags and corrects isotopic water samples contaminated with organic chemicals such as methane and methanol. The 2000 platform further improves on Picarro's industry-leading sample temperature and pressure control capabilities to provide even greater data fidelity under the harshest environmental conditions. These analyzers all incorporate a new flexible and customizable software package and user interface that makes monitoring and comparing multiple ongoing measurements easier than ever before.

Picarro's relentless focus on technological improvement has enabled its products to become the global gold standard in greenhouse gas measurements and the market leader in optical isotopic CO2 and isotopic H20 measurements. The new analyzer models expand Picarro's portfolio of innovative solutions designed to extend scientists' research capabilities and radically simplify the measurement of air, food, and water at the highest precision levels achievable.
