Performance of the Blue X-FLR9 Gas Analyzer verified
The measurement performance of the Blue X-FLR9 Gas Analyzer has been verified at the EUPHORE atmospheric chamber in Valencia, Spain. The chamber is operated by CEAM, and is part of the Eurochamp2020 network, funded by the EU. EUPHORE is a state-of-the-art scientific facility. It offers unique capabilities to generate and control a blend of pollutants in a vast chamber that mimics outdoor conditions.

The performance of the analyzer has been verified on traces of benzene, toluene, m-, o- and p-xylene in ambient air. It was the first time these molecules could be measured in real life conditions using a broadly tunable laser technology. This metrology verification further paves the way for a broad deployment of this self-sustaining analyzer, able to operate continuously without a need for maintenance.
Mesures magazine Awards Innovation Special Prize to Blue X-FLR9 Gas Analyzers
La revue Mesures organizes each year its reknowned “Palmarès Technologiques“. Blue is proud and thankful to have been awarded a special innovation award for its Blue X-FLR9 Analyzers in the Industrial Analysis category.
The Blue X-FLR9 Gas Analyzers are based on Blue’s proprietary Broadly Tunable Laser, they can analyze traces of hundreds of molecules with a single laser source.

Blue X-FLR9 Series official launch
Blue is pleased to announce the official launch of the Blue X-FLR9 Series of gas analyzers.
After intensive beta-tests at clients and partners over the past 6 months, the Blue X-FLR9 Series is born.
Selected as a 2018 finalist of the world renowned Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation, the Blue X-FLR9 Series is available in rackmount and mobile formats. It has been entirely redesigned and benefits from:
Prism Awards 2018 – Blue selected as a finalist
The Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation is a leading international competition that honors the best new photonic products on the market. The team at Blue is proud to announce that we have been selected as a finalist for our upcoming product Blue X-FLR8 v2, currently finalizing beta-tests at select partners and customers.
The gas analyzers from Blue are the first gas analyzers based on a broadly tunable laser. They are able to directly quantify traces of hundreds of molecules and operate in real-time. Our analyzers are used to continuously monitor gas pollutants harmful to people or to industrial assets.
Stay tuned for the imminent official launch of our new analyzers.
Blue announces new financing round
Paris, March 7th 2017 – Blue Industry and Science (“Blue”) raises 1 million € to boost its commercial deployment, targeting major international industrial partners. This round has been subscribed by Newfund along with business angels and the management of Blue. This new round of financing brings the total amount invested to 6M€.
Based on a breakthrough laser source, the gas analyzers from Blue offer significant improvements to the growing laser spectrometer technology: the ability to monitor hundreds of gases with one single laser source, the robustness of the measurements even in changing process environment, and a very fast application development time.
Julien Roquette, CEO of Blue, commented : « Our company has shown very strong progress in 2016 in positioning our unique technology with key partners. Our solutions help our customers address new challenges for demanding process control applications. One of our anchor customers is Sanofi, we’ve been collaborating with them since 2015 and the capabilities of our technology was found of great value for their applications. »
Anne-Sophie Nédellec, Investment Director at Newfund, commented : «Blue’s unique technology brings advanced lab capabilities directly on the production lines: that is a very key requirement of Blue’s customers. »
