The flammability of a substance varies with its temperature. Doesnt an analyzer have to be as hot as the source to measure true flammability as it exists at the sample point?

No, not if the analyzer allows for the temperature difference. PrevEx analyzers are calibrated for an oven temperature of 400F, however, calibrations to suit higher or lower sample temperatures are available.
