Regulators and consumers demand increasingly lower levels of harmful volatile emissions in motor vehicle passenger cabins, pushing manufacturers toward more comprehensive testing – from component level to finished vehicles – to ensure conformance and avoid costly tear-out. However, conventional analytical technologies are expensive, complex, and slow, since they are based on chromatographic methods.
This online workshop will demonstrate a modern approach to a range of vehicle and material emissions applications through use of direct, ultra-sensitive, selective, real-time, mass spectrometry.
Selected Ion Flow-tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a technique that utilizes chemical ionization to quantitatively and qualitatively analyze air for nearly any chemical species. Organic compounds (alcohols, acrolein, formaldehyde, and more) can be all measured at the same time.
This workshop content is aimed at:
- Those who are looking for a new, fast, simpler approach to vehicle and material emissions, for both screening purposes and high-sensitivity applications
- Those who are familiar with the SIFT-MS technique but want to learn more about how this modern technique can be applied
- Those who wish to see a live demonstration of the SIFT-MS instrument in action, from method creation and sample scanning, through to data collection and analysis.
By the end of the webinar, attendees will:
- Understand how direct mass spectrometry can be utilized for the vehicle and material industries
- Understand the simplicity of the technique
- Be able to compare SIFT-MS to traditional techniques
- Determine the value of SIFT-MS within their research/analytical scope
