Technical Communities and Picarro Sign Government Services Partnership Agreement

Government agencies and prime contractors now able to more easily meet their environmental analysis needs with Picarro’s Scientific Instrumentation and Environmental Monitoring Portfolio

SAN BRUNO, CA, JUNE 30, 2020Technical Communities, Inc., the company that technical organizations rely on for proven contracting, marketing, and sales solutions, today announced a new government services partnership agreement with Picarro, Inc. The agreement authorizes Technical Communities (dba TestMart) to offer Picarro’s scientific instrumentation and environmental monitoring portfolio under General Services Administration’s (GSA) Schedule Contract GS-24F-0066M.

Picarro is a leading provider of solutions to measure greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations such as carbon dioxide and methane, hazardous gases such as formaldehyde, ethylene oxide, and ammonia, and stable isotopes across many scientific applications. Their portfolio of gas analyzers and systems enables scientists and government agencies to measure GHGs, trace gases and stable isotopes found in the air we breathe, water we drink and land we harvest.

Their patented Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) is at the heart of all Picarro instruments, enabling the continuous detection of target molecules at parts per billion (ppb) or better resolution.

The changes that are occurring to the air we breathe in our homes, our workplaces and our communities — in both natural and urban environments — must be understood. Effective monitoring and detection of these changes requires a measurement leap towards real-time data collection and interpretation. Picarro’s gas analyzers provide researchers, policy makers, regulators and businesses with access to technology that expands and improves their understanding of air quality. The ability to detect subtle variations in the simplest of molecules, the common denominators that are the basis of all life on earth, is foundational knowledge that can help drive meaningful change.

“Picarro is proud of our long history of supporting environmental research in the United States, including enabling greenhouse gas monitoring network stations, air quality monitoring, agricultural research, and marine applications,” said Joel Avrunin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Picarro. “By having our analyzers available on the GSA Schedule through our partnership with TestMart, it has never been easier to put multi-species and isotopic measurement systems into the hands of government customers.”
