• Real-time and high-throughput analysis options
  • Automated headspace analysis
  • High sensitivity and wide linearity range
  • Intuitive software and flexible testing of multiple products
  • Designed and engineered for demanding laboratory, R&D, and process-line applications
  • Comprehensive analysis, including inorganics and chromatographically challenging compounds

Industry Challenges

  • Diverse volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted from and can diffuse through most modern packaging materials
  • Conventional automated analytical techniques only analyze a proportion of emitted compounds due to the chromatographic separation employed
  • Toxic small aldehydes – such as formaldehyde and acetaldehyde – are frequently emitted, but analysis is difficult and time consuming
  • Conventional test methods cannot monitor time-evolution and suffer from low sample throughput
  • Slow analysis times greatly hinder implementation of more extensive quality control testing of these harmful emissions

How Syft can help

  • Improved quality control through analysis of more samples at much lower cost per sample
  • Enhanced product insights via time-resolved analysis of emitted volatiles
  • Sensitive, quantitative analysis of all target compounds – including aldehydes and esters – with one instrument, delivering greater efficiency


With its ability to analyze a very wide range of compounds rapidly, SIFT-MS revolutionizes packaging testing across diverse materials including:

  • Polymers
  • Adhesives
  • Print products
  • Laminates

Benefits of SIFT-MS:

  • Increased product testing through faster analysis, provides early warning of quality issues in packaging materials.
  • Multiple packaging applications are conveniently and simply tackled by one instrument.
  • High selectivity from eight rapidly switchable reagent ions.
  • High robustness to humidity, greatly simplifying testing procedures for high moisture systems.
Simple quality assurance testing of polypropylene feedstock for packaging production.
