About Entech Instruments

About Entech Instruments

Entech Instruments is a leading developer and manufacturer of analytical instrumentation that supports professionals around the world in Environmental Air Monitoring, Soil & Water Testing, Industrial Hygiene, Food Safety, Flavor & Aroma R&D, Material Emissions Testing, Forensic Investigation, and Clinical Analysis. We specialize in the creation of inert air and gas sample collection equipment, chemical extraction and preconcentration technology,  as well as GC/MS sample preparation and introduction technologies.

Over the years Entech has continued to perfect the science and art of collecting, storing, and analyzing volatile and semi-volatile chemicals by GC and GCMS. At the heart of this development is Entech’s proprietary Silonite™ surface treatment. Silonite™ renders sampling devices and GCMS sample handling systems as inert as a GC column, providing better recovery of a wider range of compounds than ever before. Silonite™ can be applied to any stainless steel or glass surface, virtually eliminating the adsorption and reactions that can occur on metal and untreated glass surfaces.

Over the past 3 decades, Entech has contributed more to the field of sample preconcentration than any other company. Innovations in sample preparation for GC/MS analysis include:

Microscale Purge & Trap

Extended Cold Trap Dehydration

Large Volume Static Headspace

Pulsed Vacuum Extraction

Multi-Capillary Column Trapping

Vacuum Assisted Sorbent Extraction

History of Entech

1990 - First Product Delivery

Delivered The First Automated Air Preconcentrator For Multi-Sample Analysis (Model 2000)

1991 - First Solution for Method TO-14

Introduced the first complete solution for EPA Method TO-14 SUMMA Canister Application (Analysis, Cleaning, Stds).

1992 - First combined Polar/Non-Polar

Created the first combined polar/non-polar VOC solution (Microscale Purge & Trap) a few years before EPA TO-15 was introduced.

1994 - 2nd Gen Preconcentrator

Introduced Entech’s 2nd Generation Preconcentrator (Model 7000) after 4 years of field data from model 2000.

1995 - Smartlab

Introduced complete SmartLab product line to integrate entire air analysis laboratory onto a single Windows PC.

1996 - Asia & Europe Expansion

Increased distribution network to include Asia and Europe.

1998 - 7100 Preconcentrator

After 4 years of feedback from 7000, Entech implements major improvements.

2001 - Headspace

Introduced first canister / large volume headspace robotic system (7524)

2002 - Introduced SmartLab 2

Integrated network based on USB communications. Updated 7100 to 7100A SL2. Updated support products to SL2 (4600A Stds prep / 3100 Can Cleaner/ 7016CA-2 Canister Autosampler).

2004-2008 Robotics Systems

Developed 7500/7500A/7405/7510 Robotics Systems for single inlet, multi-canister analysis.  Entech remains the only company to provide robotic canister autosamplers that eliminate line to line variations in system background.

2006 - Micro-QT Valves

Our inert gas valve offering uncompromising leak-tight performance in an ergonomic design.

2008 - 7150

Introduced the 7150 Preconcentrator with “On Column Extraction“ and multi-stage trapping system.

2010 - Expanded Operations

Purchased adjacent building to expand operations and improve canister and field sampling product manufacturing capabilities.

2012 - 7200 Preconcentrator

After 14 years of feedback from 7100/7100A, the 7200 was completely redesigned using 3D modeling software and was made Win 7 compatible.

2013 - Introduced Million Air System

Which combined the 7200 Preconcentrator with  Robotic Canister Handling (7650-M) and sample screening without fear of system contamination

2014 - Introduced Omni-Sampler / Omni Sampler Plus

Next generation Trace Headspace Analysis for Aroma, Off Flavors, Water Analysis and more.

2014 - New Applications Laboratory

Accelerated research into better solutions for current and new markets.

2014 - Major improvements for Low Level recovery

Entech develops Silonite™ Ultra Canisters based on advanced coatings research. Toxic Organics Valve 2 introduced – the most inert repairable sampling valve available with significant improvements over the industry standard TOV-1

2015 - Introduced 7650-HS

The 7650 brings the automated analysis of MiniCans™, Bottle-Vacs™, and even large volume sampling canisters to a whole new level.

2015 - Flow Professor™ Calibration System

The easiest and most accurate way to calibrate your Entech CS1200E field samplers.

2016 - Introduced the Sorbent Pen™

The most versatile extraction and sample preconcentration technology available for GC and GCMS systems.
