Closer to Spock’s Tricorder — The Latest in Real-Time Detection

Monday | 2:00 p.m.–5:30 p.m. |

Real-Time Detection Systems, Safety, Symposia

Arranger: P. Smith, OSHA, Sandy, UT. Moderator: E. Bishop, Parsons, Council Bluffs, CA. Monitors: J. Golden, 3M Company, Cottage Grove, MN; D. Bolstad-Johnson, Phoenix Fire Department, Phoenix, AZ.

Advances in real-time detection systems and informatics now allow for high reliability data that are immediately available to decision makers. This roundtable will bring together a panel of experts who as individuals are involved in designing, testing, or using the latest innovations in real-time chemical detection and identification tools and informatics platforms to get the resulting data to those who need it as quickly as possible. Assembled experts will discuss microfabricated sensor arrays, miniature mass spectrometers, traditional and atmospheric pressure ionization for mass spectrometric detection in the field, and pulling it all together with wireless transmission of data and positioning to present 3-D models of the results.
