Person-Portable GC-MS
Griffin G510

The portable FLIR Griffin™ G510 GC/MS (gas chromatograph mass spectrometer) helps responders identify chemicals in the field within minutes. This includes trace-level detection of narcotics like Fentanyl and its analogues, opioids, amphetamines, and other drugs-of-abuse, CWAs (including being validated for A-series or Novichok agents), explosives, TICs, environmental pollutants, and other chemicals of interest. The Griffin G510 GC/MS is a confirmatory decision support tool that helps guide response professionals in determining the appropriate next steps.

No time? No lab? No problem.


Integrated syringe injector and heated sample probe for analyzing all phases of matter. Limited maintenance and no service module required.


Integrated GC separates complex sample mixtures into individual components. MS detects trace level components and identifies them by matching against the on-board library of over 270,000 chemicals.


Large touchscreen and Method Selector Wizard guides users through analysis steps in the field. Chemical name and color-coded alarm results are produced in minutes.

Decontamination Sealed for Survey Mode operation in hot-zone; IP65-rated enclosure is dust-tight and spray-resistant
Decontamination Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS)
