Gas Phase FTIR

Wed, April 5th, 2023. 11:00 am – 12:30 pm EDT

Gas Phase FTIR had not gained a large following in the emergency response community in the past due to its inability to measure at operationally relevant levels (LODs were at high ppm), time to identification (2 – 15 minutes), and the high system weight (20-25 pounds).  While systems made it to market by solving one of the drawbacks, none were able to achieve them all…until the RedWave XplorIR.  The XplorIR is a handheld (5.5 lb) gas phase FTIR which is able to detect toxic industrial chemicals at operationally relevant (low ppm) levels in a fast timeline (20 seconds)! Gas Phase FTIR is finally able to address the gap in hazmat/CBRN response – namely, the near real-time detection AND identification of gases.
