Dimensions
19.2 × 19.2 × 18.0 in (480 x 480 x 460 mm)
Weight
>50 lbs.; 82 lbs (37 kg)
Power Requirements
AC/DC Line Power; 115/220 V AC; 130 W continuous power
Transportability
Benchtop/Fixed; Small Footprint
Ruggedness
Vibration/Shock; To enhance its mobile capabilities, the analytical components of the Griffin 400 have been shock mounted and placed on a durable and rugged chassis. This shock mounting system makes the Griffin 400 operational in more aggressive environments such as vehicles and mobile analytical labs that are taken directly to the site of interest.

Sample Introduction
Liquid; Vapor/Gas; Solid
Sensitivity/Detection Limits
ppt
Known Interferents/Inhibitors
MS/MS provides additional specificity for target chemicals vs. conventional quadrupole GC/MS.
Response Time (Sample Application To Output)
<15 minutes; Chemicals elute from the column at different times, which means analysis method times may vary. Result times also can depend on the sampling tool utilized. Most GRIFFIN GC/MS customers use test methods that achieve target identification within 3-15 minutes.
Alarm Capability
Visual alarms
