SN032: Analysis of Blood Plasma – Comparing GC-MS and SIFT-MS

Martin Perkins

9th January 2020

In this SnApp Note both SIFT-MS and GC-MS were evaluated for the analysis of a solvent and its metabolite in blood plasma samples and the measured concentration by each technique were compared.

Calibration standards of the target compounds were prepared then both were incubated.

Plasma samples were supplied in headspace vials and the headspace was then injected into the GC or SIFT.

The measured concentration in samples by each technique gave a near 1:1 relationship, showing the accuracy of the methods.

It’s further proof that SIFT-MS can stand up to many routine analyses traditionally done using GC-MS.



Element Application Notes:

Element (and our partners) regularly produce Application Notes. These cover a wide and diverse range of methods, techniques, applications, and related chromatography technology. Our Application Notes provide detailed technical information, unique applications insight and method development & validation, as well as systems configuration innovations to ensure readers can further their knowledge in an engaging way. For many years, Element’s Application Notes have helped and supported analytical chemists in the fields of Gas Chromatography – GC, Liquid Chromatography – LC, and Mass Spectrometry – MS achieve to develop analytical solutions. Visit our Applications Note page to search for the insight you need in the following categories: Matrix, Technique, Analyte, Instruments, Product, Industry. Or alternatively, CONTACT US for more information or to put forward an Application Note subject and our Applications Team will be happy to support you in any way they can.
