Abstract
Two new instruments have been developed for the detection of explosives, the EVD-8000 and EVD-3000. The EVD-8000 is equipped with multi-capillary GC columns terminating to a sensitive electron-capture detector. The EVD-3000 is a novel approach for rapid detection of explosives. It is based on the specific thermal redox reaction of explosive molecules, resulting in a rapid response time of less than 8 seconds. Both instruments have facilities for processing vapor and swap samples.
