Abstract
A sampling kit has been developed for the collection of environmental and military samples suspected of containing chemical warfare agents. Designed for battlefield sampling by a unit sampling team, the kit is capable of collecting samples of solids, liquids and vapours. The kit was tested on the Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES) Experimental Proving Ground where tabun, chloroacetophenone, mustard and diphenylchloroarsine was successfully sampled and identified in samples collected in the field and transported to the DRES analytical laboratory for analysis.
