Description:Here we see chemist, Jennifer Roberts, of the Chemical Exposure & Monitoring Branch of the Division of Applied Research and Technology (DART), as she was performing a manual injection on a gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GC-MS), while inside the Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry Lab, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Notice that Jennifer is wearing her appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), which included purple latex gloves, requisite eyewear, and a labcoat.
This instrument is used to separate and identify mixtures of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). She is analyzing a bulk sample to determine which VOCs are present.

DART works to help save lives and, protect people, and support the mission of public health by identifying worker exposures to chemical hazards in the workplace and conducting analytical methods research to characterize chemical exposures.
