VALENCIA, CA — July 17, 2008 — H2scan Corporation today announced the Company will be presenting a workshop titled Solid-State Hydrogen-Specific Sensors for Process Monitoring at The Instrumentation, Systems and Automation Society of Los Angeles (ISALA) Analyzer Seminar on July 17, 2008 (www.isala.org).
Prabhu Soundarrajan, Chief Scientist and Director of Strategic Application Development for H2scan, will lead the workshop. The focus of the discussion will be hydrogen-specific technology based on palladium-nickel alloy that has the capability to measure hydrogen from 15ppm to 100% H2 under a wide variety of process operations. Other topics will include application, theory and capabilities of the technology for safety and process applications in petroleum refineries, petrochemical plants and process gas applications.
Mr. Soundarrajan joined the company in 2007 as a research scientist. He has led research into new processes and materials to continually improve the capability of solid-state hydrogen sensors to meet challenging industrial applications.
Cyril Berg, Vice President of Sales and Business Development, stated, “ISA is an important organization within our industry and events like this are crucial for the growth of the technology in this market. We are very excited to participate in this seminar.”

About H2scan (www.h2scan.com)
H2scan is the leading provider of high performance hydrogen specific sensor systems that provide accurate monitoring and control functions for a wide range of applications, including control systems, safety monitoring and alarm systems. H2scan also provides portable, handheld configurations for easy leak detection and monitoring.
H2scan’s hydrogen specific sensing systems based on a patented “Chip on a flex” technology are able to detect and measure hydrogen without false readings or expensive support equipment required. The sensing systems are able to detect hydrogen in air down to 15 ppm concentration over a wide range of temperatures without cross-sensitivities to other gases. The ability to operate with or without the presence of oxygen with no interference from CO, sulfur or chlorine separates H2scan from all other in-line measuring technologies.
The company’s solid-state technology was developed at Sandia National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy and is only available commercially through H2scan.
H2scan Corporation is headquartered in Valencia, California, and was formed in 2002 with capital assistance from the Ravinia Venture Fund and Vancouver-based Chrysalix Energy Limited Partnership, that includes Ballard Power Systems Inc., Shell Hydrogen, The BOC Group, BASF Venture Capital and Mitsubishi Corporation.
