GEOS4 GmbH and Wildcat Technologies Inc have signed an agreement whereby all rights to the Quantum MSSV-2 Thermal Analysis system, namely its brand name, the injector unit for interfacing with a gas chromatograph, its preparation oven and the supply of running spare parts, are transferred from GEOS4 GmbH to Wildcat Technologies LLC.
The published applications of Microscale Sealed Vessel pyrolysis (MSSV; closed system) include raw data for compositional kinetic models and phase prediction, the monitoring of air pollutants, bound biomarker analysis, stable gas isotope determinations and fluid inclusion analysis. The addition of the Quantum MSSV-2 Thermal Analysis System to Wildcat's product line offers new development opportunities in not only the upstream petroleum sector but also automated analytical systems in general.
