Direct mass spectrometry (DMS) eliminates chromatography and therefore accelerates sample throughput compared to conventional methods used for volatile organic compound (VOC) analysis. Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a leading DMS technique, providing rapid switching of chemical ionization agents to maximize selectivity and breadth of analysis.

This webcast is the second in a three-part series on enhanced environmental monitoring using SIFT-MS. This event focuses on the gains obtained from adopting automated DMS in environmental testing laboratories, which include reduced sample prep and higher sample throughput.

Five case studies are presented:

  • Soil analysis
  • Water headspace analysis
  • Formaldehyde analysis from sample bags
  • Canister analysis
  • Landfill and biogas analysis.

Related Applications:
