GC on the Fly

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a flying gas microchromatograph. Scientists at Samar University, Russia, have developed a device capable of performing analysis within three minutes, while in the air. With its ability to measure concentrations of substances at a two km radius from the source and at an altitude of up to 1,000 meters, it could prove a valuable alternative to lab-based equipment in the environmental analysis field – especially in sampling situations that could be dangerous for humans.

About the Author

Joanna Cummings

A former library manager and storyteller, I have wanted to write for magazines since I was six years old, when I used to make my own out of foolscap paper and sellotape and distribute them to my family. Since getting my MSc in Publishing, I’ve worked as a freelance writer and content creator for both digital and print, writing on subjects such as fashion, food, tourism, photography – and the history of Roman toilets. Now I can be found working on The Analytical Scientist, finding the ‘human angle’ to cutting-edge science stories.
