Technological advancements in gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) and Purge/Trap have improved chromatography, quickened run times and increased overall sample capacity, thus making sample runs easier and more efficient. Using a 8860/5977B GC/MS instrument coupled with a Teledyne Tekmar Lumin purge and trap concentrator and an AQUATek liquid vial autosampler, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be analyzed to the requirements of US Environment Protection Agency.
- Recent innovations in GC/MS technologies
- Key parameters for success with the purge and trap method
- An efficient way to build both the quantitation method and VOCs library using spectral deconvolution
