The Griffin X-Sorber™ handheld sampler is the newest portable member of the Griffin family of products. Weighing only 3 lbs, the Griffin X-Sorber is ideal for remote air sampling providing both time-based and volume-based sample collection methods in addition to manual sampling. Compatible with the Griffin 450 GC/MS/MS system, the X-Sorber provides flexible options for a broad range of CONOPS. Utilizing multiple low-cost X-Sorber units allows for simultaneous sample acquisition at multiple locations of interest. Upon completion of sample collection, each X-Sorber can be docked with the Griffin 450 for sample desorption and data download. A second docking port in the Griffin 450 provides a conditioning station for recently sampled X-Sorbers to be prepared for re-use.
