FROG-5000™ The World’s Smallest Portable Gas Chromatograph
The FROG-5000™ is the only portable gas chromatograph that weighs less than 5lbs (2.2kgs). The FROG-5000™ delivers lab quality results in the field. In less than 10 minutes, the operator can detect volatile organic compounds in air, water, and soil. The FROG-5000™ portable GC will detect chemicals as volatile as vinyl chloride in addition to semi-volatile organic compounds such as naphthalene. The FROG-5000™ can detect VOCs at sub-ppb levels or at high ppm levels depending on its configuration.

Detecting VOCs in Air with the FROG-5000™ Portable Gas Chromatograph
When equipped with its air sampler, the FROG can detect VOCs down to single digit ppb concentrations. At less than 5lbs, the FROG can be carried from one location to another with ease. This is particularly valuable for monitoring multiple sub-slab ports for vapor intrusion studies or for surveying various points in a factory floor for industrial hygiene. It can also be operated continuously all data is logged on its internal microSD card.
See a presentation on Indoor Air Vapor Intrusion by EPA NERL, ARCADIS, and RTI International using the FROG™ here.
Analyzing Water Samples on the FROG-5000™
When equipped with its glass sparge bottle, the FROGTM can detect VOCs down to sub-ppb concentrations. Water samples can be run onsite to reduce shipping and laboratory costs. This is particularly valuable for monitoring multiple monitor wells.
Analyzing Soil Samples on the FROG-5000™
When equipped with its glass sparge bottle, the FROG can detect VOCs in soils down to ppb level concentrations. Running samples onsite allows real time decisions to be made. This is particularly valuable for site characterization. Check out our methanol extraction kit here.
