High Pressure Mass Spectrometry for Chemical Threats - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals - Fine Chemicals
From chemical warfare agents (CWAs), toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), toxic industrial materials (TIMs), precursors, and degradation products to the growing use of unconventional agents, the risk associated with today’s chemical warfare and industrial hazards is more disseminated than ever. These expanding threats require first responders, CBRNE teams and HazMat response units to prepare for the unexpected. The use of advanced handheld analytical technology capable of proactive performance in the hot zone allows for faster detection, response and continuous monitoring of both conventional and unconventional threats helping to ensure public safety and response team protection.
The unique proficiency of handheld high-pressure mass spectrometry™ (HPMS) expands the first responder tool kit adding deep chemical, explosive and precursor material identification and detection capabilities beyond traditional tools. The selectivity of mass spectrometry allows MX908™ and M908™ to detect trace quantities of critical targets amongst the myriad of interferents that plague other less selective technologies.
