Did you know a GC-MS can be used to identify narcotics and the opioid sub-class? Fentanyl is a growing opioid epidemic and poses a significant threat to responders. 

In FLIR PRIMED episode 12, Grant provides a brief overview of what a GC-MS can do:

  • how it complements other detection technologies in the responder tool kit
  • field applications it supports
