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.

Liquid Collection System
Toxic Vapor Collector
The SC-214 μLogger is a state-of-the-art, compact, remote chemical vapor detection system. The device responds to a broad range of chemical gases in ambient air. It features an advanced microprocessor, onboard temperature and humidity detection, and an array of patented chemicapacitive and chemiresistive sensors. The unit can operate autonomously on battery power for up to 5 hours or can stream data indefinitely over USB 2.0 connection.
The SC-214 and nine-sensor array consists of one chemicapacitive sensor and one to eight chemiresistive sensors. Each sensor can be coated with a custom polymer designed to give unique responses to various classes of chemicals. This allows the user to tune the system for custom chemical detection applications. Temperature and humidity detection allow for the development of compensation and calibration algorithms.
The Liquid Collection System was developed as an accessory kit to support collection of liquid samples using Seacoast Science’s SC-V10 pump handle.
The SC-LC offers a range of collection vessels, allowing the user maximum flexibility, while collecting various types of known and unknown liquids with viscosities ranging from 1 Centipoise (cps) (like water) to 10,000 cps (thick syrups or sludges).
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.
