Chemical Warfare Agents

Fast, Accurate and Actionable Analysis of Chemical Warfare Agents

Protecting people and facilities from the vast array of compounds used as chemical warfare agents (CWAs) is a significant and important challenge. The complexity of matrices and the sheer number of substances that must be identified demands precise and reliable monitoring methods that deliver actionable data quickly.

Agilent provides a full suite of efficient sample preparation solutions and proven, high-precision GC, GC/MS, LC, LC/MS and ICP-MS analysis systems for the screening of toxic, non-toxic and degradation products and compounds. Powerful data processing and library searching tools for CWAs are also incorporated and help to provide legally defensible outputs.

Disaster responses need robust mobile measurement solutions that deliver actionable output quickly in challenging conditions. In addition, analytical systems are also employed effectively in monitoring the destruction of chemical weapon stockpiles that is being carried out worldwide in agreement with the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC).
