Food and Water Safety
ARA proudly offers innovative capabilities in the effort to maintain food and water safety. Our development of pathogen detection tools and H2O technologies has impacted a range of clients including military and civilian agencies.
ARA’s Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) has transformed the food safety industry by enabling laboratories to conduct rapid testing with little to no sample preparation. Current studies of our technologies have proven successful in detecting common food contaminants.
Further, we set the bar in Hydrothermal Processing (HTP) technology by providing a variety of applications involving reaction, separation, and formulation with or in water from cryogenic to supercritical temperatures. We are capable of tailoring our HTP technologies to new applications including medical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, alternative energies, and emergency relief operations.
Our patents in ultrapure water and biofuels are testaments to our continued passion for finding innovative solutions to real world problems.
