Hi Don,

The MSA Serius five gas PID detector is very good! Easy to calibrate and bump test. Data logging is done through a IR device.

I'm in the market for a new portable PID volatile organic compound monitor.  At present, I like the MiniRae Lite and the Ion Science Tiger LT models.  Does anyone have any experience with either, or care to recommend another?  Primary uses are indoor air quality investigations and screening surveys for solvent exposures, occasional soil headspace testing and leak detection.

Many thanks,
