We, ECO PHYSICS AG, are a Swiss manufacturer for chemiluminescense based analyzers for measurement tasks in ambient air, research, stack emission, burners and boilers, gas manufacturing and automotive applications. Our instrumentation focuses on the detection of NO, NO2, NOx and NOx-amines, but its modular concept allows an extension to O2, O3 and CO2 as well. With our interdisciplinary research and development team we provide flexible solutions according to your application. We are relying on the best suited partners in order to guarantee best possible support and service. Excellence in performance and quality is substantial and a long Swiss tradition, also among international standards. Every product leaving our factory undergoes a strict quality control procedure. These performance tests can be recalled at any time. Performance, quality and sustainability have made ECO PHYSICS one of the world leading manufacturers of analytical instrumentation.

The ECO PHYSICS Story Of Success

ECO PHYSICS was founded in 1990 through a management buy-out. It is today a growing independent Swiss shareholders company. The international activities have led to daughter companies (see 'affiliates') and a worldwide network of representatives. The cofounders and board members Matthias Kutter and Werner Moser are active partners.

The initial know-how focus was centered on the principle of the chemiluminescence, thus developing and manufacturing analyzers for the ambient pollution and emissions. The company ECO PHYSICS has perfected this analytical technique in speed and sensitivity. Today we are proud to claim the world leadership in the fastest and most sensitive chemiluminescence analyzers and the broadest commercially available range. Unique in the analytical field is the dynamic range of sensitivities from 1% down to 1 ppt (part per trillion) – thus covering ten decades!

Today, ECO PHYSICS consists of five business units:

  • Environmental field
  • Industrial applications
  • Automotive business
  • Medical applications
  • Semiconductor Fab Equipment & Process Control

As depicted such sensitive instruments are required for the tropospheric and particularly the stratospheric research. But offering the broadest product range of CLD our analyzers are suited beyond ambient level monitoring for applications to measure hot and wet stack gases, automotive exhaust, and other emissions. The medical sector opens a new field as a diagnostic tool in health care. And the semiconductor industry is using the measurement principle in systems for detecting the end point of the polishing process of wafers.

Each of the five business units offer their customers a complete solution tailored to the need of the specific industry and field. In close cooperation with the end user we strive for the ultimate solution in performance and reliability. As an example the cooperation with a wafer manufacturer has led to inventions, which will lead us into the future. Due to our constant high investment into R&D we remain at the forefront of technology. If you want to be our next partner for a technology leap into the future, contact us.

  • We are offering innovative analytical solutions for measurement tasks in the fields of environment, health and process control.
  • With our interdisciplinary research and development team we are delivering customer oriented and tailor made products and services.
  • Our marketing oriented core competence covers customer support, manufacturing and R&D.
  • We are relying on the best suited partners, internally as well as externally by applying a process oriented management system.
  • The keys to our success are our employees, who always have our customers in mind!
  • Our ECOlogical leadership is committed to sustain our environment in all of our business activities. Conserving energy and natural ressources in accordance with Swiss and international laws and guidelines is the least goal.

We have perfected this method for the measurement of nitrogen oxides in the concentration ranges of 1 % down to 1 ppt (part per trillion). Our NOx analyzers are monitoring continuously processes as well as ambient conditions around the world.

Environmental Applications
A broad range of NOx analyzers for indoor, clean room, ambient, tropospheric and stratospheric monitoring.

Industrial Applications
Whether combustion, waste incineration or power plant, most of the hot processes call for a measurement of the exhaust gas direct at the source by national laws and international standards.

Automotive Applications
Car emissions have to follow more stringent rules: You will find exactly the right instrument for your application! Analyzers for hot, moist, or cold, dry sample gas, and including simultaneous measurement of NO, NO2 and NOx reading AK protocol.

Semiconductor Applications
We provide solutions for a wide range of complex problems associated with CMP process control. This has been used successfully in manufacturing and development lines worldwide since 1996.

Medical Applications
NO trace measurements indicate airway inflammation. A range of computerized pulmonary diagnostic products ranging from neonatology to sports medicine, routine diagnostics to scientific research as well as veterinary medicine. These products are marketed and distributed by ECO MEDICS.
