Rolling up to a seminar, conference or trade show with a state-of-the-art analytical instrument has never been this quick and easy!
Syft Technologies‘ Voice200ultra instrument is all about speed (rapid trace-gas analysis with instantaneous results), it’s not only fast when it’s taking measurements, but also when it comes to set-up and start-up from cold.
Last year, we opened our office in Darmstadt, Germany and successfully kicked-off our operation in Europe by holding two two-week roadshows – one in September and one in November. With a full schedule and thousands of kilometers to cover, we couldn’t afford to waste time and effort to wait for shipping companies to organize the pickup, transport and unloading of our demo instrument from city to city, site to site. Renting a truck with a lift ourselves and transporting the instrument inside a crate seemed like the only option – but who wants to drive on the Autobahn when you’re not allowed to go above 100 km/h in a truck?
So we kept looking until we discovered the perfect solution: a VW Caddy Maxi, a normal-sized van with a wheelchair-accessible ramp that allows ease of loading and unloading the instrument, and it can safely go up to 160 km/h as well!
It’s as simple as rolling the Voice200ultra up the ramp, tying it down with the provided straps, placing the other accessories in the back, putting up the ramp and hitting the road within 15 minutes after shutting down the instrument.
And it’s even faster when we show up at a site: we have the instrument out of the car, set up at the designated site and starting up in less than 10 minutes. With the start-up itself and our step-by-step validation procedure taking less than 30 minutes combined, we’ve had the instrument warmed up and perfectly stable to take accurate measurements within 45 minutes of after parking on numerous occasions.
No other mass-spectrometry based analytical solution can offer such flexibility when it comes to setting up for demonstrations in seminars, conferences or trade shows – showing up the morning of the demo is something GC-MS technicians can only dream of!
