ABOUT

NANOSentinel has developed the world’s only portable technology to measure trace metals from macro and nanoscale samples of solids and liquids. Our device is automated and fast, acting as a mini laboratory that quantifies samples in 4 minutes. It is significantly faster than ICP-MS, and generates 90% less waste using only 1 droplet of sample.
