Area of the peak

Calibration method:
Calibrated by injecting known amount of hydrocarbon into a pillow bag

Calibration drift estimate:
Low (on the order of weeks)

Calibration schedule:
As Needed

Uncertainty estimation method:
Introducing standard chemical into the pillow bag

Known interferences:
Moisture, hydrocarbon in the air that is used to lighting up the flame
