Griffin G510
Portable Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer

The FLIR Griffin G510 Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS) is a versatile, person-portable chemical identifier. It complements presumptive techniques used during emergency missions, by enabling responders to analyze all phases of matter (liquid, solid, vapor) and by performing rapid field- confirmation of chemical hazards. The integrated heated sample probe enables hot zone operators to identify vapor-phase chemical threats within seconds when operated in Survey Mode. The integrated split/splitless injector allows for environmental, forensic, and hazardous material sampling via syringe injection of organic liquids. The 9” on-board touchscreen displays guided user prompts and can be operated while wearing full personal protective equipment (PPE) downrange. It is built with an IP65-rated enclosure for harsh environments and supports passive defense, interdiction, elimination, and consequence management missions. Long-lasting, on-board batteries ensure every mission is supported from beginning to end.

FLIR offers a revolutionary solution to the complicated challenge of eld sampling with the PSI-Probe accessory. The PSI-Probe is directly compatible with the robust Grif n G500-series GC/MS systems. The strengths of this analytical platform include the ability to transfer ultra-trace residues to the GC/MS system and perform eld characterizations and positive identi cation of chemicals within 15 minutes, all without the use of conventional sample preparation.

The PSI-Probe is supplied in a ruggedized transport case, complete with a staging base, vial of TAGs, Twister Kit, Reverse Action Tweezers, spares kit, and an operator manual. The analytical platform contains pre-loaded methods and an updated mass spectral library presented in a unique, simpli ed user interface. This allows both advanced users and beginners to utilize the system to their expertise level.


Traditional sample preparation techniques are eliminated with the simple-to use Touch-and-Go (TAG) technology, which allows users to quickly collect solid or liquid samples. No solvents, dilutions, or wet chemistry are needed when using TAG. Simply touch or tap the TAG to your sample. After collecting the sample, the sampling end is broken into the microvial, which is then placed directly into the PSI-Probe. The PSI-Probe is inserted into the adapter on the GC/MS injector. The injector thermally extracts chemical components from the sample, while the GC/MSperforms subsequent chemical identification.

The GERSTEL-Twister is a unique sampling tool. It is fast, eliminates the need for solvents, and is up to 1000 times more sensitive than SPME. It uses SBSE (stir bar sorptive extraction) to collect organic compounds directly from liquid samples, like drinking or waste water, bodily uids, or beverages. The Twister adsorbs and concentrates the organic contents onto its sorbent coating. Solid and vapor headspace samples can also be tested via Twister. Simply drop the Twister in a sample vial containing the liquid or solid and seal the vial. Then place the Twister vial on a stir plate. Remove, rinse, dry, and drop the SBSE into the PSI-Probe for thermal extraction and subsequent GC/MS analysis.
