Mobile GC-MS with Air Sampling
Griffin G460

The FLIR Griffin G460 gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GC-MS) provides best-in-class chemical identification and is built to operate in vehicles. Like the G410, it contains a standard injection port, but also an integrated universal sampling port that is capable of direct air sampling and is compatible with additional hassle-free, interchangeable sampling tools. The G460 accurately identifies explosives, drugs, CWAs, and other chemicals. The simplified user interface gives field operators and scientists quick and accurate answers.

Sample-To-Action Chemical Intelligence


Unmatched vapor, liquid, and solid sampling capability. Includes integrated standard injector and universal sampling port with direct air sampling capability.


Pre-loaded test methods with wizard are quick and simple to use, from field operator to scientist. Color-coded results streamline decision-making.


Equipped with an internal shock isolation system. Tested to rigorous MIL-STD-810G standards and can be operated in a moving vehicle.
