Why automate a direct mass spectrometric technique like SIFT-MS? To turn it into a practical, high-throughput analysis tool for the routine testing laboratory, contract research organization (CRO), and R&D laboratory!

Automated SIFT-MS complements chromatographic methods by greatly simplifying analysis of low molecular weight volatiles that are polar and thermally labile, in addition to accelerating throughput for routine VOC analysis.

Join us on October 24th to hear the behind-the-scenes story of how Anatune’s passion for automation of routine testing coupled with Dr Mark Perkins’ outstanding technical skills took SIFT-MS from manual to automated laboratory analysis. Mark will share how combining Syft Technologies’ SIFT-MS with the GERSTEL multipurpose sampler created a high-throughput analysis solution for volatiles. He’ll illustrate with sample bag analysis and various headspace techniques, plus discuss the benefits of SIFT-MS in method development. The presentation will conclude with live Q&A.
