GAS ADSORBENT BADGE FOR INDIVIDUAL EXPOSURE

 

INTRODUCTION

  • G.A.B.I.E. (Gas Adsorbent Badge for Individual Exposure) is an individual passive collection badge. It makes it possible to simultaneously sample a multitude of organic gases and vapors that may be present in the workplace atmosphere.
  • G.A.B.I.E. is a diffusion sampler using adsorption on a solid (activated charcoal) and desorption by a solvent followed by analysis of the desorbed solution (Type B1 from EN 838 standard). Similarly, another type of desorption from the substrate (thermal, ultrasound or microwave) can be considered.
  • G.A.B.I.E.was developed and patented by the INRS, Institut National de Recherche et de Sécurité (French National Institute for Research and Safety).
