Montrose has formed a global collaboration with Thermo Fisher Scientific, the world leader in serving science, to provide real time ethylene oxide (EtO) monitoring solutions to meet recently proposed EPA standards.
Montrose and Thermo Fisher have partnered to provide MAX-iAQ™ Optically Enhanced (OE) FTIR (StarBoost™) continuous monitoring systems. The MAX-iAQ™ OE-FTIR is a fully automated air monitoring solution for low-level detection of EtO, even in high humidity environments. It can quantify EtO to a detection limit of 1 ppb using the advanced StarBoost™ technology while maintaining short cycle times. It is also designed to operate as a continuous monitor with little to no user interaction.
Through this agreement, Montrose and Thermo Scientific will combine the expert field services of Montrose Environmental’s Sensible Environmental Data Platform with Thermo Scientific’s MAX-iAQ™ OE-FTIR (StarBoost™) technology to provide Indoor Air Quality monitoring systems (iAQ) and stack Continuous Emissions Monitoring Systems (EMS-10). These technologies provide various industries the solution to meet recently proposed EPA regulations regarding ethylene oxide.
