Mass spectrometry is a powerful analytical tool used in many laboratories from undergraduate teaching to commercial screening. The need to reach the correct result as quickly as possible is more important for the end user that the underlying technology.
Forensic laboratories routinely analyze samples collected from fire scenes for the presence of ignitable liquid residues (ILRs). ILRs are often recovered from fire debris using a passive heated headspace extraction, with adsorption of volatile components on active carbon followed by solvent or thermal desorption.
We are pleased to have been invited to present at this one day event, sponsored by Reliance Precision Limited, focused on the delivery of new product innovation through collaboration and partnerships.
Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is a powerful analytical technique for identifying, confirming and quantifying organic compounds in complex matrices.
Comprehensive two-dimensional GC-MS is a powerful analytical tool that has evolved from technology used mainly in the R&D laboratory to a robust commercially available solution from several manufacturers. As the amount of data from these instruments can be overwhelming, we have developed AnalyzerPro XD as a vendor neutral 2D data processing solution for all chromatographic-MS data. This software uses chromatographic deconvolution and component reconstruction to isolate the components from each sample.
The Environmental and Food Special Interest Group (EFASIG) of the BMSS arranges focussed and topical meetings at intervals. EFASIG2019 will be held at Manchester Metropolitan University on the 17th July 2019, hosted by Dr. David Megson (Senior Lecturer in Chemistry and Environmental Forensics).
