Chemical identification with the FLIR Griffin G510e's GC-MS technology

The FLIR Griffin™ G510e GC/MS is a versatile, person-portable chemical identifier. It complements presumptive techniques used during emergency operations, 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 G510e focuses specifically on environmental applications that require better separation and sensitivity to lighter volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). The G510e uses a specialised column and pre-concentrator combination to meet this demand.

The 9" on-board touchscreen delivers automated user controls and can be operated while wearing full personal protective equipment downrange.

It is built with an IP65-rated enclosure for harsh environments and supports passive defence, interdiction, elimination, and consequence management operations. Long-lasting, on-board batteries ensure environmental operation is supported from beginning to end.

Confidently identify unknowns and take action with guided controls and simple threat alarms

  • Over 60 VOCs in the Target Library along with the full NIST and SWGDRUG chemical library for field identification and analysis of unknown materials and mixtures.
  • Simple on-board touchscreen with automated user controls and Method Selector tool.
  • Visual and audible alarm confirmation with limited data interpretation.
  • On-board WiFi and GPS.

Versatile in-field sampling options for vapor, liquid, and solid samples

  • Vapor sampling probe with rapid-response survey mode.
  • Integrated split/splitless liquid injector accepts direct injection of organic liquids.
  • Optimized Column and Pre-concentrator for VOCs.
  • Links with SPME and headspace sample collection tools.
  • High-fidelity, low thermal mass (LTM) GC column for unsurpassed resolution in challenging environments.

Completely self-contained and operation-ready from the field to the lab

  • IP65-rated, dust-tight and spray-resistant.
  • Built-in active pumping system eliminates need for an external service module.
  • Integrated carrier gas, batteries, and training reference videos.
  • Simple field maintenance activities for increased uptime.
  • Extensive training, service, and support options available.
  • Optional vehicle mount kit for variety of on-the-go operations.
