Flight-ready analyser from Picarro


The new G1301-m flight-ready trace gas analyser from Picarro is the first greenhouse gas (GHG) monitor to provide high precision and accuracy for CO2, CH4 and H2O, in operation at high altitudes.

The instrument is designed for continuous operation at altitudes up to 10,000 meters (30,0000 feet) and with climb/descent rates as high as 1 km/minute.

The analyser is also equipped to manage the rigorous vibration profiles of aircraft, ships and similar environments.

Developed and tested in close cooperation with scientists at NOAA, the Picarro G1301-m enables direct, real-time sampling and analysis in-flight, eliminating the time, cost and limited data sampling associated with traditional sample capture for lab-bound instruments. The instrument is based on Picarro’s wavelength-scanned cavity ring down (WS-CRDS) technology, proven in demanding laboratory applications and challenging field locations such as Mauna Loa and CarboAfrica (Ivory Coast).
