Instrumental odor monitoring is challenging due to the chemical diversity of many important odorants (and their short lifetime in sampling media), the high sensitivity required, and the dynamic nature of the odor itself (due, for example, to changing wind conditions or human activity). Conventional sensor-based and chromatographic technologies are poorly suited to the task.
Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a revolutionary direct mass spectrometric technology that provides comprehensive real-time odor analysis through detection and quantitation of all odorants (e.g. aldehydes, amines, organosulfur compounds, and volatile fatty acids).
Please join us for this webinar, which will present a variety of SIFT-MS-based odor monitoring applications, including:
- Odor source characterization
- Continuous odor monitoring
- Evaluation of odor mitigation technologies
