Flir Systems has added new capabilities to their drug analyzer, the Griffin G510 portable GC-MS chemical detector. With these enhancements the Griffin G510 will be able to analyze and identify drugs, chemical agents, and other toxic substances faster and more effectively during field operations, the company announced.
One of these enhancements is the new “Method Selector Wizard” that optimizes response time using-screen prompts to guide operators in selecting the best pre-installed method for sample analysis. The G510 then automatically analyzes and compares the sample for a match against one of its multiple built-in libraries, confirms and displays the results. On the hardware side, a new vehicle-mount accessory allows the Griffin to be used for road and off-road missions. The vehicle-mount accessory is now available for purchase, while the Method Selector, GRIFFINLIB, and SWGDRUG library upgrades are included free with new system purchases.
“These upgrades are all about simplifying the job for responders so that in critical situations they have everything they need in the Griffin G510,” said Dennis Barket, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR’s Detection division. “The more easily and quickly experts in the field can identify chemical hazards, the faster operations can begin to manage and contain a threat. The overriding mission is to keep people safe.”
