In a world where terrorist threats seem to be almost a daily occurrence, being properly prepared to handle almost any situation is vital. When responding to an incident, immediate, on-site identification of unknown chemicals is crucial when making critical decisions regarding emergency management. HAPSITE ER Chemical Identification System
provides on-site detection, identification and quantitation of volatile organic compounds (VOC) including toxic industrial chemicals (TIC), toxic industrial materials (TIM), and chemical agents. HAPSITE ER provides results in minutes, so critical decisions affecting life, health and public safety can be made on-the-spot. Specifically designed to withstand harsh conditions, HAPSITE ER is the only person-portable gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MS), the gold standard for chemical identification, currently in use by emergency responders all over the world to provide site assessment and confirmatory analysis of chemical threats.
When responding to an emergency, whether it is a gas leak, a chemical spill, an unintentional chemical release, or an episode causing widespread symptoms of illness, the emergency responder needs to be confident an accurate initial assessment can be safely made to manage the situation. In an unknown environment, the need for intrinsically safe equipment is essential to avoid delays gathering the information needed to make critical decisions affecting public health and safety. Emergency situations can be quickly and safely assessed using the intrinsically safe, portable MicroFID II Flame Ionization Detector
to provide rapid, on-site detection and measurement of total volatile organic compounds (TVOC), including methane.
