SciAps Academic Loaner Program provides instruments that are great for lab work with students or research in the field, but the research is great for SciAps, too — scientists are always coming up with novel applications for the instruments and giving us invaluable feedback.

Common ways people use the analyzers:

  • Professors use the analyzers as teaching tools in the classroom. It’s a quick way to do lab experiments without the hassle of big lab instruments. Students can watch the analysis as it’s happening, get with instant data, and look at the details through the software on the PC.
  • Researchers use the analyzers to get instant results in the field, getting an idea of what samples are present. They don’t have to bring the samples back to the lab, or they can reduce what they carry back. The chemistry is completed and recorded right in the field.

What’s even better, people continuously think of new and interesting ways to use our devices. How can we support your creativity with our Academic Loaner Program? Contact us today.
