Tiger Optics LLC, a leading manufacturer of laser-based trace gas analysers renowned for clean technology, has recently been chosen as technology supplier to Singapore’s National Metrology Centre (NMC).

Singapore’s NMC has selected the company’s LaserTrace Duo as a key component for its new gas laboratory and joins a long list of institutes to have done so.

Established in 1975, the NMC is the national measurement authority for the Republic of Singapore. With its purchase, NMC joins a dozen other national metrology institutes that have turned to Tiger Optics since the company’s first sale in mid-2001.

Many of the institutes are using Tiger instruments as a transfer standard to calibrate their own gas standards for research and industrial purposes. Some also rely on Tiger analysers in their research of such problems as acid rain and global warming. Tiger instruments are employed in the metrology institutes of China, Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, The Netherlands, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, the UK and the US.

Tiger Optics holds exclusive rights to multiple, broad-based patents from Princeton University on the field-proven technology known as Continuous Wave Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CW-CRDS). The company’s instruments can detect down to low parts-per-trillion in a variety of gas matrices.

The LaserTrace Duo met NMC’s demand for a multi-point, multi-species, multi-gas analyzer capable of simultaneously measuring trace concentrations of moisture and oxygen in pure gases.
