The company mission & history

GET TO KNOW US THROUGH OUR HISTORY

Our story

Spectro Inlets was founded in November 2016 by a team of engineers from the Technical University of Denmark. The core technology, the microchip inlet system for mass spectrometers, was a result of 10 years of research and development, which we have subsequently commercialized and incorporated into our products.

Since the company’s inception, the team has steadily grown as well, while we have commercialized the microchip technology and carried out the first initial prototype sales to research facilities. In 2018, we completed the EC-MS, a turnkey analytical instrument used for electrochemical studies. Sales of this instrument have steadily increased since then.

Besides providing analytical instruments, the company has started pilot projects utilizing the technology for biogas and wastewater applications.
