|Fluorometrics Instruments (FMI) designs and manufactures innovative, low-cost optical chemical sensor systems and fiber optic chemical sensors. |
In the FMI approach, optical fiber is used as an active intelligent medium for monitoring important parameters in life science, pharmaceutical, quality control, food and beverage, packaging, fuel industry, aerospace and a host of other applications.
Our unique approach and our innovations in manufacturing arts combine to produce a low-cost product that performs accurately and reliably for years.
Fluorometrics Instruments (FMI) is based in Tampa, Florida. The company was formed in 2012 by its current CEO, Dr. Mahmoud Shahriari. As a materials scientist, Mahmoud started the research on fiber optic chemical sensors at Rutgers University as a research professor in 1986. He is one of the world’s pioneers in developing optical chemical sensors based on sol-gel technology. He is the author of more than 60 refereed scientific publications and have been issued 6 patents.
In 1999, he joined the sensors department of Ocean Optics in Florida as the director of R&D. There, he continued his work on optical chemical sensors with Mike Morris, then President of Ocean Optics. During his tenure at Ocean Optics, he successfully developed number of optical chemical sensors products (oxygen and pH), based on sol-gel technology and introduced them to the market. Mahmoud left Ocean Optics in 2012 to form FMI.
Mahmoud has been focusing on the development of a variety of fiber optic chemical sensors since the inception of FMI. Since the company’s inception, this work has been focused on developing and manufacturing a host of optical chemical sensors for life science and industrial applications.
FMI oxygen meter (DOPO2) can be used with various AP series sensor products, from dip probes, over replaceable caps, to needle probes to monitor dissolved oxygen in different biological environments.
Dissolved Oxygen (DO) is a key parameter that affects the healthy growth of fishes and shrimps in aquaculture. So, online monitoring the DO content in aquatic environments is very important.
|FMI oxygen meter (DOPO2) can be used with various AP series sensor products, from dip probes, over replaceable caps, down to 250 um needle probes to monitor dissolved oxygen in different life sciences applications. |
|The UV-curable ink is cured and adhered to the media or substrate by UV radiation. The print is already dried when it comes out of the printer, allowing a short delivery request to be met. |
|FMI oxygen transmitter (DOPO2) can be used with various HCR series sensor products, from dip probes to replaceable caps to continually monitor dissolved oxygen in Hydrocarbons, Organic Solvents,.... |
|FMI oxygen transmitter (DOPO2) can be used with various HCR series sensor products, from dip probes to replaceable caps to monitor dissolved oxygen in kerosene-based jet fuels. |
|FMI AP Series oxygen sensors can be used to non-destructively monitor oxygen level in commercially packed pre-cooked MAP foods. |
