A Brief History of Field Technology
The guys introduce themselves and give a brief history of how laboratory technology has evolved for field use since the early 2000’s.
Anthrax vs Fentanyl
Get some perspectives on how the “white powder” call has changed dramatically from the anthrax attacks of October 2001 to the synthetic opioid epidemic of more recent years.
Figures of Merit
On the nerdiest show so far, learn some of the scientific terms used to define the performance of analytical technologies and how they apply to the meters you use in the field.
What Category is Your Meter
Dave leads a discussion on the categories of technologies defined by SWGDRUG and how those categories can apply to using your meters together in the field.
In the first of a 3-part technology series, Mark leads a discussion on the basics of infrared spectroscopy and the enabling factors that made this powerful lab technique useful for emergency responders.
In the second of a 3-part technology series, Dr. Christopher D. Brown joins the show to discuss field Raman meters, and you’ll learn some tips for measuring solid mixtures effectively and explosive materials safely.
Mass Spectrometry and IMS
In the final of a 3-part technology series, Dr. Chris Weber joins the gang as a member of F.A.S.T. to discuss mass spectrometry, GC-MS, and IMS, and the implications for field use by emergency responders.
