DYNAMICS OF THE POLLUTION
 
Health care and health protection are of a certain concern for everybody. The basic condition for the health protection is the pure environment including the air, water, food products. To ensure this condition it is necessary to control the protection activities as well as to continuously monitor the pollution level. The series of express portable gas chromatographs “ECHO” has been developed in Novosibirsk for mass ecological monitoring. The sensitivity of the equipment equals that of its foreign analogs, and the speed of performance is several dozen times greater.
