Direct mass spectrometry (DMS) utilizing soft chemical ionization provides continuous sample analysis with high sensitivity and selectivity. Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS), in particular, is unique among DMS techniques in that it provides rapid switching of the chemical ionization agents. SIFT-MS provides class-leading selectivity coupled with comprehensive detection of volatile organic compounds and inorganic gases.

This webinar is the first in a three-part series on enhanced environmental monitoring using SIFT-MS. Here, we focus on continuous monitoring applications for industry using a variety of case studies, including:

  • Fenceline monitoring
  • Real-time stack gas analysis
  • Odor characterization at the source
  • Continuous odor monitoring.
