The analytical technique known as thermal desorption (TD) provides the ability to measure volatile contaminants in air, toys, building materials, car cabins, and food. This technique also provides unique analyses in applications for forensics, defense, and general emissions testing. When the TD systems from Markes International
are combined with Agilent GC and GC/MS systems the results meet current requirements with sensitivity and dynamic range to meet current regulations and future needs.
Markes International TD platforms allow analysis of single tubes, real-time air samples, and canisters with options for automated analysis. Markes has introduced several key technical advances that now set the standard for TD instrumentation. GC and GC/MS with TD systems are sold and supported by Agilent's worldwide sales and service organization.
