Analytical equipment is based on a wide and robust array of technologies that have undergone transformative maturation over the last several years. Many factors have led to the evolution of portable analysis equipment including the increased use of nanotechnology and the natural effects of free market competition.
The portable or handheld analytical devices market has almost continual innovation in every underlying technology and, even though many of the application areas of field analysis are completely separate, there is the opportunity for technology creators to identify previously unknown application areas for their technology.
As disparate technology develops, analytical equipment is rapidly taking advantage of both the ability to create smaller equipment without loss of accuracy, and even to increase accuracy to real-time or near real-time results that is of incomparable value for many different real-world applications.
