Portable detector identifies gases
Compact, portable GasID uses Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) to identify gas and vapors. Compares samples to onboard database libraries, which include toxic industrial chemicals, chemical warfare agents, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and flammable and non-flammable materials. Reachback service provides constant access to scientists for data interpretation and to hardware and software technicians for operating questions. In addition, users are provided with access to a password-protected Web site forum.
