David Barden introduces Markes' blog and explains why, if you’re interested in thermal desorption or the wider world of air analysis, you ought to take a look.
What did you think when you saw the ‘blog’ tab on our homepage? Curiosity? Surprise? Incredulity?
Whatever your thoughts, you might legitimately question whether there’s anything worth blogging about on the subject of thermal desorption equipment.
What we hope to prove by writing this blog is that there is
– and we hope it makes interesting reading.
First off, why have a blog at all? Well, at Markes, we’ve always been interested in helping customers solve their problems. Not about simply producing equipment, but about understanding what our customers want, and developing solutions that help them. In times gone by, you did that at tradeshows, or by visting customers on-site. With the rise of new media, however, this has changed for many technology companies, and we believe that it shouldn’t be any different for manufacturers of thermal desorption equipment.
So the aim of this blog is to engage more directly with you, the scientist. Perhaps you’re a Markes customer, and want to keep up to date with what’s going on in the world of thermal desorption? Maybe you’re new to the technology, and want advice about making the most of it? Or perhaps you’re just interested in the world of air analysis? If so, then this is the place to come and hear some thoughts on the industry, and have your own say on them. We’ll welcome any comments, and will happily start a conversation with you.
So what can you expect from this blog? Primarily, insight from seasoned specialists at Markes about what’s happening in the world of thermal desorption and related technologies, along with the myriad of applications. We’ll also be examining some of the underlying science, and drawing together some of the latest news on regulations, with commentary on what this might mean for you.
One thing that we’re not going to be doing is giving you the hard-sell on our equipment, as you can read all about that on the other pages on our website. We hope, though, you’ll excuse us if we just mention our products occasionally!
So whatever your interest in thermal desorption or air analysis, visit us from time to time (or follow us on Twitter
), and see what we’ve got to say... and let us know what you think.
