Morphix is often asked, “How do you decide which chemicals to develop badges for when there are hundreds of thousands of chemicals produced?”. First, that is a great question! Morphix relies on our customers to tell us what they need. We often ask the question, “is there any toxic chemical that you need to detect, that does not have an easy method to detect it?”. We have been asked to develop badges for substances like methane or chromium, but our expertise is in developing badges for respiratory hazards, not explosive hazards or dermal hazards. Typically, chemicals that are respiratory threats have a high vapor pressure which makes them ideal candidates for the development of a passive badge.
As we all know, just because you ask for something, you don’t always get it. But Morphix is the leader in the development of chemistries that are selective and sensitive for the targeted chemical. We have a rigorous approach to development that evaluates sensitivity, interferent effects, environmental effects (temperature, humidity and face velocity), shelf-life and service life. Want to talk badge development? Contact us to set up a consultation to discuss your chemical detection needs.
Morphix Technologies currently offers chemical detection badges for a variety of toxic industrial chemicals. Our SafeAir and ChromAir badges are highly sensitive and selective chemical detectors using colorimetric technology to provide immediate indication when a target chemical is present. These badges are used to monitor occupational chemical exposure. below you can find a list of badges currently offered:
- Chlorine DIoxide
- Carbon Monoxide
- Hydrogen Sulfide
- Sulfur Dioxide
Our badges are also available for purchase through Amazon and on GSA for Government entities
