Pixabay/analogicus: Simplify volatiles analysis - part 1: Why adopt direct MS in your lab or CRO?
Sample throughput is often a critical bottleneck for the analysis of volatiles in contract testing or research laboratories. Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a form of direct mass spectrometry that provides real-time detection of volatile organic compounds and many inorganic gases to sub-part-per-billion concentrations (by volume; ppbV) without preconcentration, derivatization or drying. Automation of SIFT-MS creates a high-throughput analytical tool that addresses these throughput challenges.
Join us for this webinar (the first in a series of four), where we demonstrate the advantages of applying automated SIFT-MS to volatiles analysis in diverse matrices, from air to the headspace of polymers, soil, and water. Find out why SIFT-MS is not simply advantageous for throughput reasons, but how it can also support faster method optimization for conventional methods (e.g., headspace equilibration times).
Subsequent webinars in this series build on these basic advantages of SIFT-MS, showing practical, proven strategies for adopting automated SIFT-MS in your routine analysis workflow.
