  Working Principles
Click to View Carbon monoxide generated during smoking can be collected in bags for analysis via the built-in optional gas analyzer through NDIR technique. Particulate matter is captured using the supplied Cambridge filter pad holders. The difference of initial and final mass of the filter pad is total particulate matter. Nicotine and water shall be determined by GC-FID and GC-TCD. Eliminating these two parameters from TPM leads to the estimation of Tar or Nicotine Free Dry Particulate matter.
