The paper details work undertaken by the Fraunhofer Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institute, Germany in conjunction with the University of Technology, Braunschweig, Germany evaluating the Markes µ-CTE in comparison to conventional emission test methods. "Good quantitative and qualitative correlation was obtained for measurements at ambient temperature. Moverover, it was shown that ambient-temperature emissions data collected using the µ-CTE as rapidly as possible ... provided a reliable guide as to how well that material would perform in subsequent 3-day chamber tests of VOC emissions."
