We offer the highest quality thermal desorber (TD) kits and supplies including TD tubes and conditioning ovens.
Thermal Desorber Tubes
For your convenience, our TD tubes are offered in both stainless steel and glass. Each tube maintains its unique serial number which is etched for easy identification. Tubes are offered with a variety of sorbent packing materials for many GC applications including indoor and outdoor air monitoring, analysis of flavors and fragrances, and the analysis of outgassing from packaging, polymers, pharmaceuticals, and semiconductor material. These tubes are available conditioned and unconditioned and ship with end caps for short-term storage.
Condition tubes faster and easier with our ATD tube conditioning oven. Condition any number or combination of stainless steel and glass tubes simultaneously without wasting gas.

The Air Toxics tube is conditioned at 350 °C. PerkinElmer recommends a maximum temperature of 400 °C for this sample tube with a desorption temperature of 330 °C. The tubes approximate analyte volatility range is n-C3 to n-C12 and the typical analytes for he Air Toxics are EPA TO-14 compounds.
Each tube is etched with a unique serial number for ease of traceability and adsorbent identification. Stainless steel tubes may also be fitted with clips that accept adhesive labels for identification. Packed tubes are shipped with long-term brass storage caps and all tubes are thermally conditioned and tested for background and backpressure.
