Clandestine drug labs are not a new problem for responders, but they are growing in number and present potentially dangerous crime scenes. By now, we’ve all seen fentanyl in the news headlines. It is the fastest growing opioid epidemic today. It poses a significant threat to responders and to our communities.

To that point, we’ve developed an application note that discusses how portable gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GC-MS) equipment like the FLIR Griffin G510 can help hazardous materials (HAZMAT) response teams quickly perform on-scene identification of narcotics. This app note specifically demonstrates detection of:

  • Diacetylmorphine - the most common chemical name for heroin
  • Fentanyl - commonly cut with heroin
  • Pyridine - a solvent used in the production of fentanyl

You can read the application note here.
