Rapid Screening of Submicroliter Urine Samples for Drugs of Abuse utilizing Pulsed Gas Ambient Ionization

Rapid detection of trace drugs-of-abuse in urine is demonstrated using a pulsed gas direct analysis in real time ambient ionization equipped time-of-flight mass spectrometer. Submicroliter sampling combined with analysis at multiple temperatures serve to minimize the matrix effects normally encountered in direct analysis of urine without pre-processing to remove salts, proteins, metabolic products including creatinine and urea.

Simplifying the detection of explosives in a walk-up environment

The composition of volatiles from freshly ground roast-ed coffee is complex, with hundreds of chemical compounds contributing to the aroma. Head-space solid-phase micro-extraction was used to sample volatiles from five different coffees for analysis by GC-MS. Chemometric analysis revealed specific differences between coffees from different origins and different preparations.

Quality Evaluation of Food Products Using Multivariate Analysis

The distinctive components between tomato juice products could be searched by capture of aromatic components with a headspace sampler and an non-targeted multivariate analysis by AnalyzerPro. An objective evaluation of the influence of differences in the types of raw materials/production process on aromatic components is possible by this approach.
