Paper Abstract

Various tissue samples have been irradiated with lasers generally used for surgical laser applications. Laser generated fumes were collected on charcoal tubes and chemical analysis of the pyrolytic products was performed by means of gaschromatographic and mass spectrometric (GC/MS) methods. First experimental results show clearly distinguishable features in the component spectra from various combinations of tissues and lasers or laser parameters, respectively. A method of standardization and calibration is presented and preliminary estimations of emission concentrations of particular substances are given.
