Owlstone provide a revolutionary dime-sized device that can be programmed to detect a wide range of chemical agents that may be present in extremely small quantities. Using state-of-the-art micro- and nanofabrication techniques. Originally developed by the company's founders at the University of Cambridge, these pioneering technologies have already won Owlstone widespread commercial and academic recognition. For oil and gas applications the Lonestar instrument detects methanol in hydrocarbons. A different valuable application is to detect traces of monoethanolamine (MEA) in crude oils and also to detect H2S scavengers and their byproducts.
