High-Throughput VOC and Inorganic Gas Analysis: Automated SIFT-MS:

SIFT-MS is a direct mass spectrometry technique that delivers real-time, comprehensive gas and headspace analysis to ultratrace levels with a wide linear range. The technique couples ultrasoft, precisely controlled chemical ionisation with mass spectrometric detection to rapidly quantify VOCs and permanent gases to low-ppt concentrations by volume.

Coupling the instrument to an autosampler is a simple and cost-effective way to leverage extremely high sample throughput for VOC and Inorganic Gas Analysis, using a variety of different techniques – Static Headspace Analysis (SHA), Multiple Headspace Extraction (MHE) and Continuous Headspace Analysis (CHA), in addition to sample bag and canister analysis.

Utilising these techniques for High-Throughput VOC and Inorganic Gas Analysis provides a fast, highly sensitive, selective and non-discriminatory analysis.



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.
