Over the last 18 months we have been working in partnership with Syft Technologies to enhance the potential of their already highly-capable instrument – the Voice200Ultra SIFT-MS, by integrating GERSTEL’s MPS AutoSampler with the instrument.  We now have an analytical tool that not only offers real-time quantitation of difficult compounds, such as formaldehyde, ammonia and small sulphur compounds, but it also completes these analyses in seconds.

We have recently had an article published in the Jan/Feb 2017 edition of American Laboratory magazine highlighting the benefits and throughput gains that can be achieved using Automated SIFT-MS for analyses such as Static Headspace Analysis, Multiple Headspace Extraction (MHE) and canister sampling.  A copy of this article can be found here.

This is just the start of what we think will be a highly significant addition to the Analytical Chemist’s toolbox.
