Due to the large number of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), there is a need to combine their separation and quantification by Gas Chromatography (GC) with Flame Ionization Detection (FID) and their individual identification by Mass Spectrometry (MS).
With this aim, Chromatotec® has developed a turnkey solution which allows the automatic quantification and identification of VOCs: the airmoSCAN XPERT. It is a combination of one or two robust instruments: a dual GC-FID for the monitoring of C2 to C16 compounds (airmoVOC expert) and a process Quadrupole MS. The instrument allows the monitoring of at least 123 VOCs at ppt, ppb, ppm and % levels in only 30 minutes. Thanks to this dual detector combination, users can avoid the risk of saturated signal on FID when important emission or immission events occur. Results are automatically validated by intercomparing of both detectors.
Thanks to its many advantages (easy to use, fully automatic, intrinsically linear, precise and very stable system with data validation) this solution has been implemented in fixed and mobile laboratories for urban and industrial field analysis all over the world.
