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

June  2014

The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) an agency within the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), awards Seacoast Science, Inc. an SBIR research grant for development of  their Unattended Monitoring for Greenhouse Crop Health. 

December 2013

A paper Co-authored by Dr. Sanjay  V. Patel, Vice President of Research and  CTO of Seacoast Science, entitled “Rule Based Regression and Feature Selection for Biological Data” was presented at the the IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM) 2013 in  Shanghai, China


Seacoast Science teams up with RadFlight Inc. of Signal Hill, California to demonstrate the integration of their chemical sensors with RadFlight’s quadcopter drones.  The test demonstrated how the two technologies could work together.  The sensor system was able to detect the presence of harmful chemicals and relay the data back to a laptop via a wi-fi connection.
