F-900 Portable Ethylene Analyser

The F-900 Portable Ethylene Analyser provides measurements of ethylene in real time. Quality Assurance professionals use the F-900 to collect the data they need to manage ethylene gas accurately and efficiently in controlled atmosphere facilities, cold storage, and shipping containers.

Until recently, sensitive ethylene measurements were available only through complex and expensive gas sampling and gas chromatography analysis. The F-900 is an economical, yet precise, solution to ethylene measurement.  

The F-900 Research Kit enables the stand-alone unit to take in-situ measurements of ethylene flux from fruits and leaves non-destructively. By using the Injection Port Kit, users can take small-volume, point-in-time measurements of ethylene. Additional sensors for measuring CO2 and O2 can be added to the F-900 for complete ripening gas analysis.  


  •     Monitoring controlled atmosphere facilities to ensure ethylene levels do not exceed critical           thresholds
  •     Inspecting shipping containers for levels of ethylene production or accumulation
  •     Measuring flux from a single fruit to understand how ethylene emission levels may vary across      treatments
  •     Measuring head-space accumulation for analysis of small-volume samples or fruits with low         ethylene emission rates


  •     Highly sensitive C2H4 sensors with a lower detection limit of .04 ppm (40 ppb)
  •     Performs non-destructive measurements
  •     Rapid response time
  •     Functional across broad temperature and humidity range
  •     CO2 and O2 sensing capability (optional)
  •     Compact and lightweight (2.43 Kg)
  •     Real-time, continuous monitoring
  •     Internal data logging and storage (4GB SD card)
  •     User adjustable sampling rate
  •     Terminal block for communication with ventilation or other controlled atmosphere systems
  •     Optional Injection Port Kit for small volume static samples
  •     Transflective display enables easy viewing in varied light conditions
  •     Functional across a broad temperature and humidity range
