  1. I’m not working with air samples, so why would I need thermal desorption?
  2. Don’t I need liquid cryogen to achieve a wide target analyte range?
  3. Can I analyse target and non-target compounds?
  4. Can I analyse reactive species using thermal desorption?
  5. Is TD suitable for semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs)?
  6. I have volatile analytes and very humid samples. Can I still use TD tubes?
