An interview with John James, Chief Toxicologist at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, mentioned Zyvex’s work on a miniature mass spectrometer. Through a new, two-year joint-research partnership with Spacehab, Inc. and Zyvex, NASA will begin testing miniature mass spectrometers, devices that can detect and measure pollutants, for advances in air quality management. Researchers aim to reduce the equipment’s size to that of a deck of playing cards while increasing accuracy and response time. Smaller monitoring devices may be useful for security measures to detect chemicals or locate explosives, and advances in air quality monitors also may better detect unsafe levels of carbon monoxide or formaldehyde.
