Our Story


Since its establishment in 2017, Forensics Detectors has become the most comprehensive gas measurement company in the world, offering the best and most affordable gas detectors, meters, and analyzers. The company has grown significantly and now provides virtually every major type of gas meter and detector to sectors such as oil and gas, research and development, transportation, food, construction, electronics, and occupational safety. Forensics Detectors is committed to delivering the highest quality professional gas measurement, detection, and monitoring equipment, with expert technical support. The company is based in the scenic Palos Verdes Peninsula in Los Angeles, California.

... now the "real" backstory

In 2017, Forensics Detectors was founded by Dr. Koz, a renowned gas detector specialist. From a young age, Dr. Koz had a passion for tinkering, playing around with, and inventing various electronic devices. As a teenager, he even sold 13.8v DC power supplies that met regulatory standards to amateur radio operators at flea markets in Melbourne, Australia.

During his studies in electronic engineering, Dr. Koz received a distinguished graduate scholarship from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. This led to an invitation to join the Sensor Technology Laboratory, which was led by Professor Wojtek Wlodarski. Dr. Koz was thrilled to be a part of this team and spent up to 14 hours a day in the lab. His initial projects included developing an optical analyzer for particulate emissions, a humidity sensor, and a combustion analyzer, as well as various toxic gas sensors and systems. Professor Wlodarski even nicknamed him "Action Man" for his hard work and dedication.

One of Dr. Koz's most notable accomplishments while in the Sensor Technology Laboratory was inventing and patenting the world's first carbon monoxide sensor system for vehicles. This invention which prevents driver fatigue and suicides, was widely covered in national news. As a PhD student, Dr. Koz traveled around the world to present his inventions and ideas at international conferences and major industry events, including Siemens in Germany and the Ford Motor Company in Michigan. He also expanded his expertise in developing alcohol breathalyzers, electronic noses, combustion analyzers, and ozone sensors that outperformed the world's best.

While pursuing his graduate studies, Dr. Koz attended the May 2001 IEEE Semiannual Vehicular Technology Conference in Rhodes, Greece as part of a conference trip. During the trip, he made a side visit to the enchanting Santorini island where he met his future wife. After getting married, they settled in Los Angeles, California, where Dr. Koz became an engineering professor at UCLA.

At UCLA Dr. Koz was active in nanotechnology for sensors, nanoelectronics for computing, and nanomaterials for telecommunications while collaborating with the Department of Defense, Intel, IBM, GlobalFoundries, and MICRON. He published with the Nobel Laureate Prof Stoddart, invented next generation MOF gas sensors with BASF researchers and now licensed by sensor companies. Furthermore, he led a tech venture startup company that commercialized high speed carbon electronics for 5G communications.

To his surprise, Dr. Koz was sought out by numerous law firms across the United States for his expertise in forensic toxic gas detection, and he was consulted on various legal cases. During this time, he was shocked by the lack of available products that could prevent toxic gas exposure. After pondering this issue for a few years, the "Action Man" took action and founded Forensics Detectors Company in 2017. The company's objective was clear: to provide consumers with the best, most affordable, and innovative gas detectors, meters, and analyzers on the market.

Today, Dr. Koz leads a talented team at Forensics Detectors. The team strives to deliver the highest quality gas detection equipment, at affordable prices and fast delivery speed.
