SIFT-MS – Try Before you Buy

Ray Perkins, Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry, SIFT-MS, Try Before You Buy, Volatile Organic Compounds,


Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry is a powerful new technology that offers the potential for great improvements in the way that volatile organic molecules and gases of all polarities can be measured in air and other matrices.

For some labs, the question will be, how to explore the practicalities of SIFT-MS, while minimising the financial risk.

You could simply wait a year or two and see how other labs get on, but what happens if a competing lab takes up the challenge?  They could well get a head start and make inroads into your business, before you are able to respond effectively.

Even if you don’t have any competitors, you could be loosing out on the benefits of the new technology for several years.

To help accelerate the adoption of SIFT-MS, Syft Technologies are funding a Try-Before-You-Buy scheme that enables you to get SIFT-MS into your laboratory for a low monthly cost, enabling you to trial the technology in your own lab with very little risk.  If it doesn’t work out, you just send it back.  No questions asked.

This is how it works…

You rent a SIFT-MS for 1-6 months with an option to buy the instrument at a discounted price.

At any point during the first six months, you can:

  • Buy the instrument outright
  • Sign up for a full four year rental
  • Return the instrument to Anatune if it doesn’t work out for you.

If you decide to buy the instrument, we will discount 75% of the rental paid from the price of the instrument.

This offer includes installation, full training and technical support.
