Canary-Two

Defiant’s Canary-Two™ combines three micro-fabricated components: a chemical pre-concentrator, a gas chromatographic column and a SAW micro-balance. A chemical coating on the preconcentrator ignores potentially interfering chemicals while the GC column separates target chemicals for unique identification. The system identifies agents in air and reports their concentration.
