About Us

Scientists Helping Scientists

We are scientists helping scientists make purer extracts, starting with our patent-pending FRACTION FINDER technology. We have a rockstar technical team, specialized in spectroscopy and its use for quality monitoring, compliance, and purity of life-transforming plant extracts. Our research has been peer-reviewed and published, and we are continuously innovating and making new solutions based on our customers’ needs. Arometrix is a Maryland-based type C corporation with headquarters at 11900 Parklawn Dr. Suite 203, Rockville, MD.

Proven & Experienced

Arometrix is a partnership of science and ingenuity formed by two U.S. companies with a rich history of R&D in scientific measurement. Arometrix was formed by its two parent companies, a research company and a product company. The research company has 9 optical patents under its belt, and the product company sells over 10,000 electronic instruments and controllers a year in the botanical, R&D and industrial sectors. The partnership was born to take this very important technology to botanical extraction companies to help them make safer, purer product. Our creation is the FRACTION FINDER, a patent-pending technology that utilizes fluorescence spectroscopy to track molecular content during botanical processing. Our vision is to be standard for quality monitoring, purity, and compliance of life-transforming plant extracts. Our core values are technical expertise, innovation, quality, and transparency.

Arometrix: What’s in the Name?

The name is composed of two parts: Aro, the prefix that is also present in the term Aromatics. Aromatic compounds are the type present in much of the botanical oil processing and examples are terpenes, benzene, and toluene. Metra is short for measurement. X marks the spot: finding a definitive answer.
