Chemical agent research

Laboratory fumehoodAs well as the detection of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) for homeland security and for the monitoring of stockpiled and non-stockpiled agent, a considerable amount of research has been undertaken to counter the hazard posed by CWAs.

Research into CWAs draws on a number of techniques, including on-line and off-line monitoring, but additionally is concerned with how CWAs interact with materials.

This has application, for example, in developing protective equipment for military personnel.


 

What Markes can offer

The study of chemicals released by materials is a growing field of application for thermal desorption, and advances made in this field are also applicable to CWA research. In particular, Markes’ Micro-Chamber/Thermal Extractor has the following applications:

  • Screening for surface contamination of chemical warfare agents at an incident site.

  • Substrate analysis after decontamination to assess cleaning efficiency.

  • Retention characteristics of chemical warfare agents on different substrates.

  • Investigations into the use of surface coatings to reduce contamination by chemical warfare agents.
