The GERSTEL Thermal Desorption System provides unmatched performance for a wide range of applications.

Main Features and Advantages

  • Platform Approach: provides more options for sample introduction and automation than any other system
  • Rugged and Reliable: No valves or long transfer lines to foul up or replace
  • No Carryover: Direct interface eliminates carry over issues found when using valves and transfer lines
  • Easy method development: GERSTEL's CIS based trap does not require different trapping materials for different compound classes
  • Compatibility with ISO, ASTM, and other standard methods used in material emissions and other industries
  • Optional 21 CFR part 11 Compliance
