Overview

If a fire's ignition is suspicious, the analysis will include gas chromatography (GC) as a means to detect the presence of a liquid accelerant; this analysis may include mass spectrometry (MS) as the initial detector or as confirmatory analysis. For sample preparation, coupling the GC/MS with a Thermal Desorber provides additional benefits, the main one being the elimination of solvents, reducing associated hazards and costs - no solvents to buy, no waste to dispose of, no spills to prevent.

Also, as with all forensic analyses, the data generated in arson analysis must be legally defensible - this creates the need for duplicate sample analysis as well as sample archival.

Evolved Gas Analysis - Hyphenated Technology Guide

The needs for polymer, pharmaceutical, chemicals, food and beverage, and environmental analyses are constantly changing due to innovation demands and regulation changes.

Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA) solutions combine multiple analytical technologies to empower speed and advanced information acquisition. Coupling Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA) systems with other analytical systems such as Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) and Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) Spectroscopy represents the most complete and advanced EGA solutions for gaining insights beyond decomposition of materials, by carrying out in-depth characterization of the evolved gases.

This comprehensive technology guide is your guide to understanding how hyphenation provides the insights - not just WHEN something has happened, but also WHAT happened.
