We know your world
At Synspec it’s not just about analysers that monitor volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It’s about the people who design and build them. Each member of our team has deep technical and analytical know-how. Our creative zeal drives innovation and new applications in the field of gas chromatography instrumentation. We have an eye for service long after sales have been made. And we share our knowledge through training courses that keep you up-to-date.
By working closely with environmental agencies, facility and site service experts, system integrators and distributors, we understand the issues at play.
We help our ambient and industrial clients attain a cleaner, safer future. We do this by providing you the tools to develop and meet environmental standards, increase process efficiencies and build on sustainability performance.
Care and inventiveness goes into every instrument we make. Our gas chromatographs detect methane and total non-methane hydrocarbons (TNMHC), benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes (BTEX) or ozone precursors for ambient air monitoring, and a wide range of volatile hydrocarbons for industrial plants and processes. Accuracy is key: Synspec monitoring instruments are able to determine specific compounds down to 0.1 ppb and below.
Expert care and knowledge
By inventing and prototyping analytical systems for VOC monitoring for more than 25 years, we have developed a deep understanding of our clients’ needs. This results in solutions that attain goals and give peace of mind.
Care for lasting service
Growing public and political awareness combined with precise regulation means that VOC monitoring systems need to be more trustworthy than ever before. Learn about our after sales services: remote access capabilities, our help desk and our spares supply.
Caring to keep you up to date
We do this because we believe in shaping a cleaner, safer future for us all. Right here, right now. Watch our corporate video below to find out more.
Our mission is to give authorities and industry the tools to push forward towards a more successful and sustainable future. We do this by inventing and building VOC monitoring analysers that help environmental protection agencies develop regulations and standards and, in turn, improve the quality of our living environment. For the industry that means ensuring safety and improving process efficiency.
Our purpose is to bring our stakeholders together under one shared objective: creating a cleaner, safer future for us all. This builds bonds with our international network. It structures long-term partnerships with governmental bodies, environmental and utility experts, system integrators and EPC companies, site service departments and industrial end-user clients.
Synspec was founded in 1993 by Frank and Titia Meuwese, two chemists, who graduated from the University of Groningen. The founders’ strong views on environmental issues is what prompted them to start this business. And even until today their deeply-rooted values are reflected in the philosophy and day-to-day actions of our employees: care for the environment at work and at home.
Today, Synspec is a leading company, operating at the high-end of the market, in the manufacturing of VOC instruments for ambient air monitoring and industrial emissions monitoring. Together with its sister company, LSE Monitors, Synspec belongs to a Dutch holding entity. Synspec is R&D based enterprise with all operations and facilities in Groningen, the Netherlands.
For more than 25 years we’ve been developing and manufacturing fully-automated field gas chromatographs (GCs) that detect toxic and carcinogenic VOCs. Our GCs are easy to operate, cost-efficient to run and offer the highest level of reliability.
We also offer analysers that make use of the photo-acoustic principle. These laser-based analysers are invented and developed at LSE Monitors, a sister company of Synspec.
With a dedicated R&D team, our ever improving technology ensures that you get accurate monitoring results to comply with environmental regulations, improve industrial processes and protect the safety of your workers on site.
Synspec’s range of analysers:
We measure for the well-being of our society and the planet. Our robust analytical instruments are very sensitive, and are the tools for authorities and industries to qualify and quantify the presence of chemical compounds in our ambient air and industrial emissions.
By working closely with industrial and governmental clients from all over the world, we have acquired a deep understanding of their unique issues and needs. This means we are your partner when it comes to air monitoring solutions to detect toxic and/or carcinogenic VOCs.
Quality is an ongoing activity as it requires the continuous improvement of the organisation and products on a day-to-day basis. Read below about the tools that are used by our company to ensure this.
Synspec quality management system (QMS) complies to the ISO 9001:2015 standard. The ISO 9001 certificate has been granted to the company since 2005 and has been valuable in the process of continuous improvement of the organisation and its analytical equipment.
