Event Overview

Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT–MS) combined with sample automation like headspace or thermal desorption highly accelerates and simplifies the analysis of VOC in packaging material, polymers and recyclates as well as in natural matrices like air, water and soil. The speed, repeatability and sensitivity achievable with automated SIFT–MS will be demonstrated for targets like formaldehyde, BTEX, residual monomers and odors like terpenes, aldehydes, organic acids, and reduced sulfurs. The sample throughput is 5 – 50x higher than conventional GC/MS: chemically diverse VOC can be quantified in a single analysis down to the pptv level in seconds to minutes. The system is designed and engineered for use in commercial, industrial and research environments.

Key Learning Objectives

The fundamental features of SIFT–MS (selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry) compared to conventional GC/MS, including its ability to analyze samples selectively and comprehensively in a simple and ultrafast procedure.

Understand how SIFT–MS can enhance and improve new product development, complement sensory panels and provide fast screening, thus saving time and money, and reducing product losses.
