Entracers’ miniRUEDI is here!

After a couple of months Entracer’s first portable membrane inlet mass spectrometer system (aka miniRUEDI) is ready to determine gas concentrations in the environment. A few applications that exemplify the flexibility of this instrument:

Testing the miniRUEDI

Many thanks are due to Matthias Brennwald at Gasometrix GmbH for supporting its construction!
