Fluorometrics Instruments (FMI) was formed in 2012 by its current president, Dr. Mahmoud Shahriari. At FMI, we design, develop, and manufacture innovative, low-cost Fluorescence-based optical chemical sensor systems. Some of these sensors include zero drift oxygen sensors (AP series), semi-disposable fiber optic oxygen sensors, hydrocarbon compatible oxygen sensors (HCR series), fiber optic pH sensors, and fiber optic temperature sensors. FMI’s goal is to offer a wide range of easy to use and innovative sensors at a more affordable price point than competing companies while maintaining quality.
CEO & Founder
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. In 1999, he joined the sensor 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 a number of optical chemical sensor 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.
