CID Presents at American Society of Horticultural Science Conference

If you plan on attending the 2014 American Society of Horicultural Science Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida this week, make sure to stop by and visit our booth. Application Scientist, Andrea Melnychenko, and CID's owner, Leonard Felix, would love to demonstrate our instruments, hear about your research, and answer any questions you may have about our products.

CID Bio-Science is also pleased to announce the award-winning CI-900 Portable Ethylene Analyzer will be featured at ASHS this year. The CI-900 will be presented at the ASHS workshop “New Innovations in Commercial Horticultural Applications” in a session led by one of the instrument’s designers, Application Scientist Andrea Melnychenko. The instrument will be introduced along with recent research and applications for ethylene analysis in greenhouses and controlled atmosphere storage using the CI-900.

“Until now, ethylene has been a wildcard in horticultural product processing. This instrument brings lab-quality ethylene analysis to producers for a reasonable cost,” said Melnychenko, noting that “even trace amounts of ethylene can adversely affect outcomes for harvest, processing and storage.” In addition to ethylene (C2H4), the CI-900 measures CO2 and O2 for applications in monitoring growth chambers, greenhouses, storage facilities, controlled atmosphere environments, and Modified Atmosphere Packaging. Winner of the 2014 Gases & Instrumentation Award for Gas Analysis and Detection, the CI-900 makes precise ethylene management possible anywhere, from large-scale storage operations to 6 mL samples of gas.
