Toxic Industrial Chemicals

Detecting and Identifying Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs)

A large volume of toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) and toxic industrial material (TIM) is stored and transported around the country every year, and the hazardous effects resulting from sabotage or accidents are potentially very significant. Adequate monitoring to ensure protection is required, but detecting and identifying TICs presents challenges to analysts due to the abundance of different compounds present in solid, liquid and gaseous states, and the complex matrices in which they are found.

By providing access to comprehensive compound databases, addressing the full spectrum of TICs, and advanced selectivity methods in difficult matrices, Agilent is at the forefront of TIC security. Our leading technologies across the analytical workflow enable users to gain actionable results quickly, and our range of rugged and robust mobile measurement solutions provide protection in the field, such as in emergency responses or at remediation sites.
