Tiger VOC Detector is used within the University of Nottingham School of Chemistry (GSK) to detect potentially harmful VOCs within its laboratory environments.

The University of Nottingham is a globally engaged university that is committed to making a difference by solving problems and improving lives. They are one University in many countries, having founded the first UK overseas campus in Malaysia in 2000 and the first UK university campus in China in 2004, as well as delivering off-campus courses and having offices around the world. Over 150 countries are currently represented by those who study and work with us, and we aim to engender a global mindset among our staff and students.

The University of Nottingham School of Chemistry had received some complaints about strong chemical smells in their labs, but the team also wanted to introduce some additional safety measures in the event of ventilation systems being down, accidents, leaks or other potential hazardous incidents.

Our UK distributor, Shawcity, is pleased to have supplied, ION Science’s leading handheld VOC gas detector, the Tiger, to help monitor air quality at the University of Nottingham School of Chemistry GSK Centre for Sustainable Chemistry. As the first VOC detector used by The University of Nottingham School of Chemistry, one of the key factors for purchase was the ease of use for the Tiger, and the extensive technical support offered by Shawcity.

Spokesperson at the University:
The Tiger is very useful in the lab for both routine inspections of air quality and equipment functionality, as well as for use in emergencies when ventilation equipment has gone down. We are extremely pleased with the product and Shawcity have been helpful throughout.

Tiger Handheld VOC Gas Detector

The Tiger handheld VOC gas detector is a revolutionary handheld, portable PID instrument for rapid, accurate detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

The Tiger handheld VOC gas detector provides a dynamic detection range of 0 to 20,000 parts per million (ppm) with a minimum sensitivity of 0.001ppm (1 ppb), offering the widest measurement range of any other VOC detector on the market. This portable, handheld detector has the fastest response time on the market of just two seconds and is just as quick to clear down.

Tiger has been designed for the safe replacement of batteries in hazardous environments. Long-life rechargeable Li-ion batteries give up to 24 hours of use. Fast battery charging allows the instrument to be fully charged in 6.5 hours, while 8 hours of use can be achieved from 1.5 hours charge.
