Abstract:

The objective of this study was to perform preliminary laboratory evaluation of as many of the selected Class A poison detection techniques as possible within the time constraints of the program. Each of these methods was tested, when possible, for their limits of detection, reproducibility of test results, accuracy, maximum sample volume necessary, and cross sensitivities to other Class A poisons. The methods to be evaluated were for arsine, hydrogen cyanide, cyanogen chloride, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, lewisite, phosgene, mustard gas, and phosphine.
