Thermal desorbers are widely used for environmental testing, often in the monitoring of air quality.
Large instrument companies such as PerkinElmer and Thermo Electron often package thermal desorbers with their GCs.
Many gas chromatography manufacturers, such as PerkinElmer and Thermo Electron, also sell thermal desorbers.
In 2000, the thermal desorber market was estimated at over $10 million with growth in the high-single digits.
