Product Information

GasID

Each chemical has a unique infrared fingerprint.

When a response team is called upon to deal with a potentially toxic gas, the first and most crucial question is: “What are we dealing with?” The GasID answers this question in minutes.

The GasID measures how gases and vapours interact with infrared light and can quickly tell a response team if they are facing a toxic gas or chemical – or not.

Its analysis takes 10 minutes and compares the results against database libraries that include nerve and blister agents, the NIST/EPA Gas-Phase Infrared Database and the Pacific Northwest National Lab Toxic Industrial Chemicals.
