OUr Mission

Microplastics have recently been recognized as a significant environmental contaminant with implications for human health and carbon capture.  It is widely recognized that we need to control and decrease the level of microplastics in our society.  The California State Water Control Resources Board recently mandated that agencies that deliver water to the majority of California residents need to monitor for microplastics using either FTIR or Raman microscopy.  However, the reduction of microplastic levels is challenging since detection and monitoring of these contaminants is difficult. Soar Optics is developing products to improve the speed and efficiency of microplastics detection and monitoring using optical sensors related to the FTIR and Raman methods currently in use.  These products will permit a comprehensive analysis of microplastics in a typical water or other sample where microplastics are a concern.
