Air can be a complex and dynamic matrix. Conventional analytical technologies (e.g. GC-MS and HPLC) lack the time resolution, responsiveness, and comprehensiveness of analysis required to provide timely answers so that the root cause of perturbations in air quality can be rapidly identified and addressed.
Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a revolutionary direct mass spectrometric technology for fast, sensitive, selective, and robust analysis of air at trace levels. Diverse VOCs (such as benzene and formaldehyde) and inorganic gases (such as sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide) are detected in a single, simple analysis. These characteristics see SIFT-MS instrumentation making an increasing footprint in both 24/7 online monitoring installations and in laboratories.
This webinar will present a variety of SIFT-MS-based environmental applications, including:
- Ambient and fenceline monitoring
- Stack analysis
- Indoor air quality analysis, including instant formaldehyde analysis
- Comprehensive odor analysis
