Dr. Vaughan Langford

BSc(Hons), PhD


Principal Scientist / Consultant

Vaughan joined Syft in 2002 after completing his PhD in Physical Chemistry at the University of Canterbury (1997) and post-doctoral fellowships at the Universities of Geneva, Western Australia, and Canterbury.

As manager of Syft’s contract laboratory, Vaughan has worked extensively with customers to understand their analysis needs and develop market-tested SIFT-MS solutions.

Vaughan has experience across all SIFT-MS application areas, but has particular expertise in environmental and food industry applications. He is an expert in SIFT-MS application and method development.

In addition to the technical aspects of his role, Vaughan attends and presents on many of Syft’s webinars and attends various conferences on our behalf.

Syft Technologies Pharmaceutical Industry Webinar

SIFT-MS is a new tool for real-time, selective and economical trace gas and headspace analysis. SIFT-MS uses so chemical ionization to quantify volatile compounds, including chromatographically challenging ones such as formaldehyde, formic acid, and ammonia.

Direct, broad-spectrum analysis using SIFT-MS provides new opportunities across multiple pharmaceutical applications, including:

  • Simple formaldehyde analysis
  • Packaging screening, including residual monomer analysis
  • Residual solvent analysis
  • Cleaning validation
  • Production facility air quality monitoring
  • Bioreactor monitoring

Volatile compounds occur frequently as impurities in pharmaceutical products and are often of concern due their toxicity. Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a new tool for real-time, selective, and economical trace gas and headspace analysis of volatile compounds, including chromatographically challenging ones such as formaldehyde, formic acid, and ammonia.

Direct, broad-spectrum analysis using SIFT-MS provides new opportunities across multiple pharmaceutical applications, including:

  • Simple formaldehyde analysis
  • Residual solvent analysis
  • Packaging screening, including residual monomer analysis.

Join us for this web seminar to learn more about how SIFT-MS works and how it speeds and simplifies common pharma VOC analysis applications.

SIFT-MS provides highly sensitive, selective, and non-discriminatory analysis in real-time. When SIFT-MS is coupled with autosampler technology, SIFT-MS delivers sample throughputs that are unparalleled by conventional technologies.

Multiple applications in the pharmaceutical industry are enhanced through application of rapid gas and headspace analysis, including more comprehensive screening for residual solvents and residual monomers, delivering enhanced quality assurance. SIFT-MS also provides unique opportunities for continuous or multiple-point monitoring of air, breath, and manufacturing processes. Analysis of chromatographically challenging compounds (such as formaldehyde and formic acid) is greatly simplified using SIFT-MS through elimination of chromatography and the need for derivatization and preconcentration.

Whether you are looking to address issues that traditional techniques cannot resolve, accelerate your R&D, improve QA/QC, reduce costs, or mitigate risk through analysis of more samples, SIFT-MS delivers.
