In this webinar, we demonstrate the advantages of applying automated SIFT-MS to analysis of volatiles in diverse matrices, from air to the headspace of polymers, soil, and water. Formaldehyde and the BTEX compounds (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and the xylenes) will be utilized in various case studies. For the first time with direct MS, we present a calibration approach that enables speciation of ethylbenzene from the xylenes in real time.
Sample throughput is often a critical bottleneck for analysis of volatiles in the contract testing or research laboratory. Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (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.
SIFT-MS provides highly sensitive, selective, and non-discriminatory analysis. When SIFT-MS is coupled with autosampler technology, SIFT-MS delivers sample throughputs that are unparalleled by traditional technologies.
Automated SIFT-MS provides economic benefits through reduced cost per sample, greatly reduces sample turnaround time, and revolutionizes the entire laboratory workflow for analysis of volatile organic and inorganic compounds. And it is applicable to a wide range of matrices!
Whether you are looking to address issues that traditional techniques cannot resolve, accelerate your R&D, improve processes and reduce costs, or mitigate risk through analysis of more samples, automated SIFT-MS delivers.
