Handheld detector systems
Seacoast Science's current handheld detection systems weigh less than four ounces (100g) yet are rugged enough to be deployed aboard unmanned air vehicles or individual soldiers. The handheld detection systems can also be utilized in fixed locations, such as office building entrances, factories or airport baggage check-in. We are currently designing systems for defense applications, government agencies, national laboratories and first responders.


Educational Mini GC Plus 
Seacoast Science and Vernier Software and Technology, a leading provider of scientific technology for educators, have release the new Mini GC Plus.  This release provides upgraded features.  The features include higher maximum temperature, offering more flexibility in designing temperature profiles.  And  two level sensitivity settings for the improved sesnor. The Mini GC Plus Provids teachers with latest and most advanced analytical tools.

About the size of a shoe box, the Vernier Mini GC Plus Uses Seacoast's advanced MEMS sensor technology. Our detector along with a custom designed software-controlled internal flow and heating system, allow for the use of normal room air as a carrier gas. This makes the system ideal for use in a class room setting.   Learn More About the Vernier Mini GC
