FROG-5000™ Portable Gas Chromatograph GC
Detecting Volatile Organic Compounds VOCs in Air
When equipped with its air sampler, the FROG portable gas chromatograph can detect volatile organic compounds (VOCs) down to single digit part-per-billion 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.

FROG Air Analysis – Vapor Intrusion Study
The FROG portable gas chromatograph was used to monitor soil gas ports in a residential basement as well as continuously monitor the ambient concentration of PCE in the basement.
Patrick Lewis, Senior Scientist and Co-Founder from Defiant Technologies, and Dott.ssa Leila Patalano, Application Chemist from Defiant’s Italian distributor FKV, were onsite to assist in the investigation.

FROG Air Analysis – Soil Vapor Extraction Study
Workers were cleaning up an old plant that made coke for steel production.
Douglas Adkins, Co-founder and Senior Engineer at Defiant Technologies, was onsite and demonstrated how the FROG could detect the petroleum products in the soil vapor monitoring wells. The levels were high enough that an inline diluter was needed.
This was the future site of an apartment complex.
