Seacoast Science’s chemical sensors use polymer filled micromachined capacitors to measure the dielectric constant of an array of selectively-absorbing materials. Capable of detecting vapors of organic compounds and inorganic gases, each device has ten sensors on a single chip, with several different coatings for redundancy and interferent rejection.
Seacoast Science develops micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors for gas phase analytes including volatile organic compounds (VOCs) chemical warfare agents (CWA) toxic industrial chemicals and materials (TICS & TIMS), emission gases, hydrogen and ethanol. The compact size, low power consumption, and low cost of these sensors make them ideal for integration into varied packages for numerous applications.

Toxic Vapor Collector
The Modular Chemical Detection System is designed to provide the basic parts necessary to incorporate a chemical sensor into an existing network or device for demonstration purposes. Weighing less than four ounces (100g), the SC-210 base assembly can detect numerous volatile organic chemicals, emissions gases, nitroaromatics, and chemical warfare agents (CWA).
Optional modules can be added to increase response speed, increase sensitivity, to protect the sensor from extreme environments, and to build a handheld miniature gas chromatograph.
Our polymers are licensed under U.S. Patent No. NRL-LIC-05-13-179 issued to the United States of America, as represented by the Security of the Navy for the absorption of chemical analytes leading to detection and identification of such chemical analytes.
Seacoast Science’s SeaPort 4TD provides a tool for environmental monitoring for noxious and toxic vapors to help protect workers and the general public.
The SeaPort-4TD is designed specifically for sampling using up to four conventional thermal desorption (TD) air-sampling tubes. Its flexible design allows for individually addressable sorbent tubes for short or long-term air monitoring using commercial, off the shelf (COTS) TD tubes. A simple but flexible user-interface allows the user to preprogram start, stop and flow profiles for each sorbent tube individually.
Seacoast Science, Inc. is leading the way in field portable gas chromatography. Our Mini-GC features an oven-less heating technology with fast heat up and fast cool down times. Sensing is performed by our proprietary sensor technology and integrated platform.
Seacoast Science has teamed up with Vernier Software and Technology, a leading provider of scientific technology for educators, to provide teachers with latest and most advanced analytical tools.
The number of white powder calls across the nation has continued to grow, and how first responders react to and collect the particles is becoming increasingly important and costly. Seacoast Science, Inc. has developed a new portable powder evidence collection kit, the SC-V10. This kit is designed for high-efficiency collection of powder evidence.
Designed as a modular system the device consists of a reusable vacuum handle with detachable single-use collection nozzles and accessories. This modular design makes the collection process easy, while reducing potential cross-contamination and exposure to the user.
