The Sociedad Europea De Analisis Diferencial De Movilidad SL is a Spanish SME founded in February 2005 with the aim of developing a new generation of analytical instruments able to detect sub-trace elements, both in the atmosphere or within the body fluids, based on the know-how of its technical consultant and co-founder Juan Fernandez de la Mora, Yale University professor.
SEADM technology is based upon the integration of Atmospheric Pressure Photo Ionization (APPI), Electro-Spray Ionization, mass spectrometry and Differential Mobility Analysis (DMA). The company is located in Boecillo (Valladolid) about 200 km North West of Madrid, with a 250 m2 laboratory area. Currently, it has 17 employees, including 9 engineers on account of operations of manufacturing, R&D and marketing.
During the last six years, SEADM has significantly increased its commercial activities, delivering products and engineering services for advanced nano-particle measurements and vapour analysis with special focus in security and environment applications. Its range of products, http://www.seadm.com/products.html, spans from standalone equipment to technological modules (including its renowned DMA) notwithstanding the more and more demanded add-ons as mobility filters for mass spectrometers.
Role in the Project
SEADM will be mainly engaged in the development, testing and benchmarking of cutting-edge technologies for particle emission assessment including DMA’s and a new particle counter, as well as their integration as portable systems. More in detail, this includes the development of a: (i) sizing CPC, (ii) improved version of its Half Mini system specifically adapted to the emission measurement, (iii) low cost Drift DMA and (iv) portable particle measurement system.
SEADM is uniquely qualified to accomplish this work on the grounds of its long expertise in the development and commercialization of related systems, most importantly, customized for the most various applications within several sectors of research and industry.
Our company’s instrumentation, particularly in the field of nano-particle assessment, is beginning to be acknowledged as the world-wide reference, as witnessed by the growing number of publications released by independent groups during the last years
