Camsco is an employee owned and operated manufacturer of sorbent tubes, adsorbent tubes and ATD tubes located in Houston, Texas. In 1991 Camsco was founded to manufacture thermal desorption tubes for the US militaries’ new Chemical Weapons Destruction Program. The US military was an early convert to thermal desorption, selecting it to replace impingers and solvent extraction as a monitoring method. Many in industry and academia followed, signaling the rise of thermal desorption that continues today. The adoption of TD by the industry coupled with the US Chemical Weapons Destruction Program expansion made Camsco the largest sorbent tube manufacturer in the world, producing TD tubes for all makes and models of commercial and military thermal desorption systems.
