Mass Spectrometry

Identifying explosives and contraband vapours


Want to know how explosives and contraband vapour traces can be extracted and accurately detected without sample preparation and chromatography? Attend this educational presentation...

Rapid identification of explosives and contraband vapours for cargo screeningTrace detection equipment can be used in both the laboratory and in the field to detect explosives and other substances of forensic interest (including illicit drugs). To allow for rapid analyses, thermal desorption APCI can be used, resulting in high performance and low limits of detection.

Carl Fletcher explains thermal extraction ion source MSDr Carl Fletcher (Lead Scientist and Head of Scientific R&D at Mass Spec Analytical) is giving a presentation, describing how a Thermal Extraction Ion Source (TEIS) coupled with mass spectrometry delivers rapid identification with the required sensitivity and specificity demanded by security and forensic organizations.

Carl's presentation will offer provide insight into...

  • how explosives and contraband vapour traces can be extracted and accurately detected in seconds without sample preparation
  • how explosives and contraband vapours can be analysed in a non-chromatographic workflow
  • how this single approach can be applied to particulate, swabbed and vapor samples

If you are involved in forensic or security applications don't miss out on this presentation.
