Part 1 of a 4 Part Series: Streamline Routine Volatiles Analysis-Filling the Awkward Gap Between GC and LC
Sample throughput is often a critical bottleneck for analysis of volatiles in contract testing or research laboratories. In particular, many volatiles-such as those with low polarity or low molecular weight-fall into an awkward gap between conventional gas and liquid chromatographic techniques (GC and LC).
Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is an excellent solution to this problem and is an easy-to-adopt complement to GC and LC techniques. SIFT-MS is a form of direct mass spectrometry that provides real-time detection of volatile organic compounds and many inorganic gases to sub-part-per-billion concentrations (by volume; ppbV) without preconcentration, derivatization, or drying. Automation of SIFT-MS creates a high-throughput analytical tool that addresses these throughput challenges.
Join us for this webcast (the first of a four-part series), where we demonstrate the advantages of applying automated SIFT-MS to volatiles analysis in diverse matrices, from air to the headspace of polymers, soil, and water. SIFT-MS is not simply advantageous for throughput reasons; it can also support faster method optimization for conventional methods (such as headspace equilibration times). SIFT-MS is easy to adopt, easy to automate, and can be utilized in a manner analogous to traditional chromatographic methods.
Subsequent webcasts in this series build on these basic advantages of SIFT-MS, showing practical, proven strategies for adopting automated SIFT-MS in your routine analysis workflow. We will also include example data and case studies from a range of application areas from pharmaceutical to environmental analysis.
