Air FROG-400™
Portable GC PID, Micro Gas Chromatograph with Photoionization Detector
for Detecting Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Air

Air FROG 400 Portable GC PID Gas Chromatograph Photoionization Detector

THE WORLD’S BEST PORTABLE GC FOR AIR ANALYSIS

The Air FROG-400™ can detect volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in air samples delivering lab-quality results in less than 10 minutes. It is the only portable gas chromatograph that weighs less than 2.6 lbs (1.2kgs) and offers single ppb detection capabilities.

The Air FROG-400™ portable GC shows results directly on the LED display or it can send the data remotely through Bluetooth® to a linked computer.

FROG-400™ operators use it to determine trace amounts of suspected chemical contaminants without waiting for results from an offsite lab. Within ten minutes you’ll have an answer in the field and know the composition of an offending odor.

How to Use the Air FROG2020-10-14T14:43:18+00:00

WITH A COMPUTER

Air FROG Portable GC PID - with a computer

You can initiate an analysis on the Air FROG™ portable GC using a computer. Attaching the Air FROG™ to a computer allows data to be studied in real-time with the Ellvin™ chromatography software.

ON ITS OWN

Air FROG Portable GC PID  - On its own

You can use the Air FROG™ portable GC on its own by pressing the toggle switch on the side to start an analysis. Results are presented on the screen at the end of a run.

FOR CONTINUOUS MONITORING

Air FROG Portable GC PID - for continuous monitoring

You can set the Air FROG™ to run continuously and gather data throughout the week. Learn how VOC levels change with time. All data can be retrieved from the internal micro-SD card.
