AlyXan develops, manufactures and commercializes instruments for continuous and/or onsite analysis of trace elements such as volatile organic compounds.
Founded in 2005, AlyXan is now entering the commercial launch phase for its first two products: BTrap, a solution for continuous and/or real-time analysis of volatile organic compounds based on high-resolution mass spectrometry, and TD Flash, an analytical thermal desorption device.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCTS / SERVICES / TECHNOLOGY
AlyXan has provided the naval division of the French military’s Directorate General of Armaments with a solution for real-time air analyses in nuclear submarines.
The company also contributed to the European project DEMOSOLNOWAT for the development of dry etching technologies for photovoltaic cells. As a part of that project, AlyXan developed an instrument capable of monitoring concentrations of light gases, such as the difluorides used in manufacturing.
AlyXan is also working with IFPEN (French Petroleum Institute-New Energies) on topics like automobile emissions or oil and carburant oxidation.
Within that partnership, the company participated in the EtOH4Future project aimed at measuring the impact of biofuels (E10 to E85) on non-regulated pollutants emissions.
Furthermore, AlyXan joins forces regularly with the French ecological transition agency ADEME on the issue of air quality at soil remediation worksites.
More recently, AlyXan has partnered with the utilities company ENGIE on the question of the quality of biogases and the valorization of these latter, both as an urban energy source and for the production of synthetic methane.
Finally, the company’s BTrap analyzer is being used in a project on air quality in airplane cabins.
Beyond the facets developed here, AlyXan has forged links with a number of other prestigious clients, such as Naval Group, Airbus, ENSAM, EDF, Michelin, Saint-Gobain, SIAAP, Total, BASF, Vallourec, Thalès, AgroParisTech and more.
CUSTOMER REFERENCES / COLLABORATIONS / HIGHLIGHTS
Several BTrap and TD Flashs have already been sold. Distribution agreements were also signed.
Also, as part of its service provider activities, AlyXan has developed strong relations with prestigious clients including DGA, DCNS, Airbus, ENSAM, l’Oréal, Veolia, Michelin, Arcelor, Saint-Gobain and SIAAP among others.
Industrial entities interested by onsite or deferred dynamic analysis of volatile organic compounds present at very low concentrations in complex mixes. AlyXan is looking for collaborations in the eld of medical diagnostics: breath analysis, urine or blood odors.
