Inficon - HAPSITE Smart Chemical Identification System
| Year of introduction
Mass spectrometer: GC-MS
|Fast, Easy, On-Scene Identification of Unknowns
Now get fast, on-scene detection, identification and quantitation of toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) and chemical warfare agents (CWAs) with HAPSITE® Smart, the only person-portable, gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MS) that gives you lab-quality data with the push of a single button. GC/MS is the benchmark for positive identification of organic chemicals with the highest degree of accuracy of any available analytical technique. And with easy-to-operate HAPSITE Smart Chemical Identification System, users get the confirmatory results within minutes that are necessary to make critical decisions affecting life, health, safety and the mission.
Features at a Glance
Simplicity, Speed and Precision
- Fast, confirmatory results in the field directly comparable to laboratory GC/MS data
- Pre-programmed methods to obtain quality data in minutes with a few simple keystrokes
- Bright graphical display of chromatograms, spectra, instrument condition, and cal curves on the instrument for easy viewing
- Weather-resistant and easily decontaminated
- Built-in GPS records exact sampling location with date/time stamp for legally defensible data
HAPSITE Smart is the most powerful, truly portable analytical tool available for field use. Its totally self-contained system with pre-programmed methods and 32-bit architecture for more versatile data processing means an operator can simply power up the instrument to enable the appropriate method, establish specified temperatures, and automatically tune the instrument if necessary. HAPSITE Smart signals when ready, in minutes, and with the push of a single button, begins sample acquisition. Complete analysis results, including chromatograms, spectra, library search results and quantitative data, are displayed on a bright, clearly visible screen in daylight or darkness.
For the most demanding field analysis by the experienced GC/MS profession, HAPSITE Smart allows customized method building, remote operation and sophisticated data-presentation using the rugged, wireless Panasonic® Toughbook® laptop computer, which now is available with the instrument.
Low Detection Limits to Parts Per Trillion
In HAPSITE Smart, a microtrap concentrator enables detection and identification of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the low parts per billion/parts per trillion range, providing unprecedented sensitivity for on-scene analysis. This can be helpful in investigating problems caused by extremely low-level contamination, such as odor complaints, sick building syndrome, or chemical warfare agents.
INFICON offers an economical upgrade to HAPSITE Smart for standard HAPSITE Chemical Identification Systems.
