Thetford Mines, QC, Canada - 08 May 2019

ASDevices has recently been awarded two new patents that cover its core gas sensing technology which is based on a plasma discharge. Those patents are part of Yves Gamache, ASDevices CEO/CTO, substantial patent portfolio. The patent, "multi-mode plasma-based optiocal emission detector" covers the core sensing technology. The other patent, "System and methods for testing for a gas leak through a gas flow component", covers an innocative method to precisely measure leaks and displace traditional instruments such as helium leak detector based on a mass spectrometer. 

“As an innovator and disrupter, patent protection and enforcement is very important for us. We are substantially investing in research. Protecting us and our customers is key. With those two new patents, we are the only company in our field to have a worldwide patent on a plasma base sensor. These new patents, which have been awarded in a short period of time, is a good indicator of our level of innovation. We are all very proud of it”, says M. Lamontagne.

During the past few years, ASDevices has filed 14 new world wide (USA, Europe, China, Japan) patents and more are being filed. The patents topics cover gas sensing, gas purification, fittings, chromatographic valves, GC platforms and signal processing methods.
