Ultrasensitive Passive Sorbent Surveys
For over 20 years, Amplified Geochemical Imaging LLC (AGI) has provided expert detection and mapping survey services for the oil & gas, environmental, and mineral industries. Our technology has been proven in more than 70 countries, used in all terrains, geographies and climates.
Our passive gas sampling technology was first developed by Dr. Ronald W. Klusman at the Colorado School of Mines and purchased by W.L. GORE & Associates, Inc. W.L. GORE invested the time and money necessary to take the surface detection system to ultrasensitive levels. In 2013 Amplified Geochemical Imaging purchased the technology rights from W.L. GORE & Associates, Inc. and used their exploration and environmental experience to expand the technology applications to include Downhole Geochemical Logging.
Amplified Geochemical Imaging is currently the industry leader in ultrasensitive surface detection and mapping. Amplified Geochemical Imaging Surveys identify, measure, and map volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds in soil gas, water, air, and sediment. Our technology uses passive samplers at the surface to adsorb part-per-billion (ppb) concentration levels of various organic constituents and then thermally desorbs those compounds to be quantified by mass spectrometry. This technology is often times 1,000-times more sensitive than traditional methods and is used to detect thermogenic hydrocarbons for the Oil & Gas industry, environmental contaminants for the Environmental industry, and minerals (i.e. mineral ligands) for the Mining industry.
The AGI Sampler is flexible, easy to use, cost effective and provides accurate and reliable results. Our laboratory is DoD ELAP and ISO 17025 accredited, ensuring the highest quality control available in the industry (refer to our scope of accreditation, A2LA Testing certificate 3062.01, for additional details on methods and analytes associated with our accreditation).
