FLAME IONISATION DETECTOR (GC)
Flame Ionization Detector - FID
A flame ionization detector (FID) is a scientific instrument that measures analyte in a gas stream. It is frequently used as a detector in gas chromatography. The measurement of ion per unit time make this a mass sensitive instrument. Standalone FIDs can also be used in applications such as landfill gas monitoring, fugitive emissions monitoring and internal combustion engine emissions measurement in stationary or portable instruments.
