Award-winning Ethylene Analyzer featured at American Society of Horticultural Science Conference

CID Bio-Science is pleased to announce the award-winning CI-900 Portable Ethylene Analyzer will be featured at the American Society of Horticultural Science (ASHS) Annual Meeting in July. The CI-900 will be featured at the ASHS workshop “New Innovations in Commercial Horticultural Applications” in a session led by one of the instrument’s designers, Application Scientist Andrea Melnychenko. The instrument will be introduced along with recent research and applications for ethylene analysis in greenhouses and controlled atmosphere storage using the CI-900.

“Until now, ethylene has been a wildcard in horticultural product processing. This instrument brings lab-quality ethylene analysis to producers for a reasonable cost,” said Melnychenko, noting that “even trace amounts of ethylene can adversely affect outcomes for harvest, processing and storage.” In addition to ethylene (C2H4), the CI-900 measures CO2 and O2 for applications in monitoring growth chambers, greenhouses, storage facilities, controlled atmosphere environments, and Modified Atmosphere Packaging. Winner of the 2014 Gases & Instrumentation Award for Gas Analysis and Detection, the CI-900 makes precise ethylene management possible anywhere, from large-scale storage operations to 6 mL samples of gas.

Additional CI-900 product information available here.
