Security and Fire often intertwine – as with the new Griffin G510x Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer, a versatile lightweight detector of gas, narcotics and explosives.
Produced and developed by Teledyne Flir, the official press release describes the product as a person-portable chemical identifier, specifically pointing out its versatility as a product.
Security teams have the capability of quickly capturing evidence, with the Mass Spectrometer able to identify the major and minor chemical constituents in street drugs in under 5 minutes.
The main benefit for both Security teams and Fire teams of a Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer is the ability to identify, in real-time, chemicals in the air via hazardous material sampling. Perfect for teams going into unknown environments, or where there are suspected chemicals involved in a scene.
The 9″ onboard touchscreen of the Griffin G510x allows for guided user prompts, leading an individual to quickly identify hostile agents. The device is able to be used by an operator wearing PPE.
