A Little Lunchtime Viewing

11th February 2016

Dual Polarity Ion Source, Environmental Monitoring, Mark Perkins, Mobile Monitoring, Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry, SIFT-MS, Webinar,


At the end of January, Syft Technologies’ Dr Barry Prince delivered a webinar on ‘SIFT-MS and its Use in Environmental and Mobile Monitoring Applications’.  Not only did the presentation showcase the new Dual Polarity Ion Source – giving you 8 reagent ions, for greatly increased selectivity – it also had a couple of interesting live demonstrations in it.

The full webinar is now available to view on Syft’s website and at 2 minutes 40 seconds you can see real-time monitoring of vehicle exhaust emissions.  This shows the simultaneous measurement of hydrocarbons, BTEX and small aldehydes, showing how generally difficult analyses are made simple with SIFT-MS.

You could also fast-forward to 21 minutes to see an interesting demonstration using candles, but why not watch the whole video – it will be time well-spent.
