Our Mission

We are dedicated to the development of new analytical instruments for atmospheric and environmental measurements. While our specialization has always been in miniaturized instruments for measurements of ozone (O3), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and mercury (Hg), we have long since grown to include numerous other chemical species in air.

Our goal has always been to use sound science and innovative technology to provide our customers with cutting-edge instrumentation. A commitment to quality infuses everything we do toward that goal, and is how we maintain certification under the ISO 9001:2015 international quality standard.

Our Technology

2B Technologies (2B Tech) has launched over 20 major products since the year 2000. All the instruments we manufacture utilize absorbance-based monitoring techniques to measure and characterize various air pollutants with high precision and accuracy. Our small, lightweight, low-power instruments are widely used for atmospheric measurements using balloons, kites, UAVs, research aircraft, and at many remote sites, including Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands, the Greenland ice sheet, the summit of Mont Blanc, the Amazon rain forest, on buoys in the Arctic Ocean, on commercial airliners, in many U.S. National Parks and at numerous other locations throughout the world.

More than 2,200 of our Model 202 and Model 205 Ozone Monitors, over 350 POMs, and more than 10,000 total instruments have been sold since the year 2000, with about half of our instruments going to researchers outside the U.S. More than 1,400 scientific papers have been published that cite use of 2B Tech instruments, and those papers have been cited more than 40,000 times by other researchers.

Our Outreach

Empowering Communities to Explore, Map, and Improve Air Quality

The ultimate goal of AQEarth is to develop instrumentation and services that meet the air monitoring needs of participating communities.

AQEarth is a project that aims to work collaboratively with communities to help meet the air monitoring needs of five very different locations.

The project offers local air monitoring (mobile and fixed site equipment) with a range of supporting services including educational and public outreach efforts. 

The AQEarth team works closely with local leadership (regional government, community groups, universities) to:

  • Design a study
  • Identify sites and local partners
  • Deploy equipment and provide training
  • Provide outreach and education support
  • Create a sustainable monitoring system

Funders of the AQEarth Project: AQEarth is funded by a Phase II Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant from the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

The purpose of this grant program is to help small businesses figure out the needs of communities and develop products and services that meet them.
