Activated Research Company (ARC), producers of the Polyarc reactor, has announced a new partnership with Wasson-ECE to bring the system to the international market for the first time.

Activated Research Company (ARC) (Minnesota, USA), producers of the Polyarc reactor, has announced a new partnership with Wasson-ECE (Colorado, USA) to bring the system to the international market for the first time.

The Polyarc reactor is a catalytic microreactor designed to enhance gas chromatography (GC) with a flame ionization detector (FID) by converting organic compounds to methane prior to detection. A recent publication in The Analyst demonstrated the reaction of trimethylsilylated chemical analytes to methane using this system (1).

“Combining our private label version of the Polyarc reactor system with our core chromatography technology allows us to expand our portfolio of solutions, which will greatly benefit our customers,” said John Wasson, President of Wasson-ECE. “There are many applications of the device and we look forward to integrating it into new and existing GC solutions as well as being ARC’s global distribution channel,” he continued.

This collaboration sees Wasson-ECE become the distributor for this catalytic microreactor outside of the US as well as providing technical assistance.
