Get a new edge in the analysis of nanoparticles and trace compounds
Sociedad Europea de Análisis Diferencial de Movilidad SL (SEADM) is a Spanish SME founded in February 2005 with the aim to become centre of excellence in the field of analytical instrumentation for the detection and characterization of trace elements (including nanoparticles), based on the know-how of its technical consultant and co-founder Juan Fernandez de la Mora, Yale University professor.
SEADM technology is based principally in two areas of proprietary know-how:
- Differential Mobility Analysis (DMA). SEADM develops Differential Mobility Analyzers (DMA) tailored for the analysis of nanoparticles and the replacement of liquid chromatography equipment, showing unbeatable performance in terms of speed, sensitivity, resolution and, in the case of chemical analysis, MS integration.
- Ion sources based in the Electrospray ionization (ESI) principle. Particularly, SEADM uniquely delivers Secondary Electrospray Ionization fully customized to customer’s requirements. The ion sources (electrospray ionizers) readily interface with either user’s favourite mass spec or with SEADM’s Differential Mobility Analyzer (DMA), allowing on-line analysis of vapors with enhanced sensitivity in real time.
The company holds 12 patents in the area, and has the exclusive world-wide licence for 2 patents on mobility analysis property of Yale University (USA), and sublicensed by the US company NanoEngineering.
Products and Applications
Since its foundation, SEADM has delivered instrumentation equipment for the analysis of vapors and nanoparticles. These systems are used for multiple applications within the nanoscience, health, environmental and security sectors. Our customers include mainly research institutions and instrumentation companies around the world working in explosives detection, virus screening and aerosol measurements.
SEADM has the following resources:
- Personnel: 12 engineers.
- Laboratory: Installed in Fundación CARTIF facilities, Seadm laboratory covers a 250 m2 area, and includes a Sciex Q-Star XL TOF mass spectrometer, a Sciex API 5000 triple quadrupole, as well as a single quadrupole Shimadzu LCMS 2010.
