Q-Technologies develops and supplies innovative mass spectrometry systems and is at the leading edge of micro and miniature mass spectrometry technology. The technology has applications in a wide range of existing and emerging areas across a variety of industries. We have exclusive technology that enables us to be a key provider of unique cutting edge solutions.

Previous projects (from January 2012 up to the present) include the development of an artificial sensor to complement the work of sniffer dogs at border checkpoints (www.sniffles.eu), an in-water MS system used in aquaculture, and work for the National Nuclear Laboratory.

In October 2015 Q-Technologies was been a key player in the CHEMSNIFF project (www.chemsniff.eu), which aimed to further develop the groundbreaking systems created in the SNIFFLES project.

January 2018 saw Q-Technologies begin work on two separate projects: EMERTOX and OCHRAVINE, which seek to use sensor technologies to actively monitor the water quality and toxicity and the presence of toxic fungi in crops, respectively. Both of these projects are funded by the EU through the RISE framework, which seeks to send researchers between partner organisations for research secondments.
