908 Devices' G908 integrates the speed and separating power of ballistic gas chromatography with ultra-compact, low maintenance and rugged high-pressure mass spectrometer (HPMS). HPMS is literally the act of performing mass spectrometry at much higher pressures – 10,000 times less vacuum than a conventional MS. HPMS not only enables several key components of the mass spectrometer to be miniaturized, it also completely removes the need for large, continuously operating vacuum pumps that limit deployment of conventional mass spectrometry within production environments.

The Lumin Purge and Trap Concentrator (PTC) is a sample preparation instrument used to remove Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) out of aqueous and solid sample types using Helium or Nitrogen. The VOCs are deposited onto a sorbent trap which is then heated to release the VOCs into a Gas Chromatograph (GC) system. This technique is standard for many EPA Methodologies as well as analytical options where concentration of VOCs is required.
