The unprecedented advance from three to seven reagent ions enables SIFT-MS to provide even greater selectivity and analyze new compounds.


Syft Technologies’ introduces a breakthrough in Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) by adding four negatively charged reagent ions: O, O2, OH, and NO2 to the traditional positive reagent ions H3O+, NO+, and O2+.

The high selectivity of SIFT-MS arises from the different reaction mechanisms provided by each of the reagent ions.  The unprecedented advance from three to seven reagent ions enables SIFT-MS to provide even greater selectivity and analyze new compounds.

Experience the Benefits of Seven-Reagent SIFT-MS

  • Unsurpassed selectivity via seven rapidly switchable reagent ions
  • Analyze compounds inaccessible to ionization with positively charged reagents
  • Chromatography-free analysis of diverse compounds in a single, simple operation (e.g. permanent gases, aldehydes, amines, and organosulfur compounds)
  • Detection limits in the part-per-trillion by volume (pptv) range
  • All reagent ions created by microwave discharge through dry or moist air:
    • No radioactive ion source
    • No hazardous substances
    • No reagent gas cylinders
  • Streamlined, integrated software control of all aspects of reagent ion creation and selection

Sulfuryl fluoride linearity

Linear detection of sulfuryl fluoride using the OH reagent ion


New and Enhanced Applications Include:

  • Acid gas detection (hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, sulfur dioxide)
  • Greenhouse gas analysis (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, water)
  • Fumigant detection (for example, sulfuryl fluoride (VikaneTM), cyanogen)
  • Photochemical smog precursors (NOx, ozone, PAN)
  • Tracer gas analysis (sulfur hexafluoride)

THIS ALL-IN-ONE GAS ANALYSIS TOOL IS AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY JANUARY 2016!
