For laboratories analyzing everything from air quality to flavors and fragrances, thermal desorption offers a faster, easier, more cost-efficient way to prepare samples for GC or GC/MS analysis. Ideal for the trace-level measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)—as well as most semi-volatile chemicals—thermal desorption lets you avoid time-consuming, manual, solvent-based sample preparation in favor of a simple, streamlined, automated approach. It also delivers the added benefits of superior throughput and enhanced sensitivity.
In today’s budget-constrained, yet highly competitive laboratory environments, the samples you’re being asked to analyze – whether food, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, or environmental – are increasingly difficult. But for some labs, having a dedicated GC for every application isn’t an option. For them, a GC that can do it all isn’t just a nice-to have, it’s a necessity
Pesticides can adversely affect human health through the food we consume but can also leach into soil and groundwater and impact us through the environment. To keep up with a complex and constantly changing regulatory environment, your pesticide analysis solution needs to keep up with your burgeoning sample load.
Although it was built for portability and speed, the low thermal mass (LTM) capillary GC provides equivalent chromatographic resolution and performance to a benchtop system. The miniature size is achieved by replacing a conventional convectively-heated column oven with a low thermal mass (LTM) column bundle with direct-contact electrical resistive heating. LTM GC uses a small diameter, metal capillary GC column, which is bundled with resistive heating and temperature-sensing wires that are braided Superior technology • Small diameter LTM capillary GC for high speed, high resolution separation of chemical analytes • Rapid temperature programming delivers analysis times of under three min. • Sensitive and selective mass-based detection of a wide range of chemicals • Easy to operate with a color touch-screen display and simple navigation buttons Figure 1. The Torion T-9 Low Thermal Mass Capillary GC is fast and operates reliably. Injection Port with Removable Liner LTM Capillary Column Bundle Cooling Fan Electronic Pressure Control GC Electronic Board together with insulator strands. This design provides for greater heating and cooling speeds and very low power consumption
The analysis of C2 to C12 volatile organic ozone-precursor compounds can present a serious technical challenge to the analytical chemist. Low concentrations in the atmosphere coupled with the need to monitor frequently to assess diurnal variations means that a preconcentration step of the sample before analysis by thermal desorption is required. While the samples can be collected in the field and returned to the laboratory, remote, field-based analysis is desired which allows reduced data turnaround time, minimizes sample collection hardware and permits the presence or absence of VOCs to be correlated with meteorological data. In the field, low-molecular-weight C2 VOCs can be trapped on solid adsorbents if those adsorbents are cryogenically cooled.
Chlorophenols are by-products of the drinking water purification process and are also widely used as wood preservatives, herbicides and pesticides. In this study, the derivatization and extraction happened in the headspace vials during the vial thermostatting step. The derivatization reaction is affected by temperature and time, therefore the thermostat time and oven temperature of the headspace sampler were investigated for optimum derivitization/extraction conditions.
BTEX are regulated toxic compounds while benzene is also an EPA target carcinogen. The investigation of these compounds, especially in drinking water at low levels, is critical to protect public health. This application note focuses on exceeding the current EPA detection limit requirement for BTEX while meeting and/or exceeding all other criteria in EPA method 524.2 for these analytes.
Water polluted by herbicides leach and runoff can cause human health problems including cancer tumors, reproduction deformity, disruption of the endocrine system and DNA damage. This application presents a sensitive and robust liquid chromatography method to test nine widely used herbicides (Figure 1), using a 3 µm UHPLC column to achieve very high throughput at a low flow rate to reduce testing time and solvent consumption. The throughput is compared to that of a conventional C18 HPLC column. Method conditions and performance data including precision and linearity, are presented.
This application note will concentrate on the potency identification and quantification of THC and CBD in cannabis by Gas Chromatography. Other application notes will cover potency by HPLC, pesticide analysis and residual solvent analyses. Analysis of cannabis has taken on new importance in light of legalized marijuana in several states of the USA. Cannabis contains several different components classed as cannabinoids. Primary cannabinoids of interest are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN). Positive identification and quantification of the THC/CBD ratio is a primary objective in the analysis of cannabis. Cannabis is analyzed for several different purposes.
This application describes an analytical method for the chromatographic separation and quantitative monitoring of seven primary cannabinoids, including THC and THC-A, in cannabis extracts by HPLC with PDA detection. Naturally occurring cannabinoids, the main biologically active component of the cannabis plant, form a complex group of closely related compounds, of which 113 are known and 70 are well described. Of these, the primary focus has been on ?9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), as the primary active ingredient due to its pharmacological and toxicological characteristics, upon which strict legal limits have been enforced.
Air pollution is a global concern. Ground-level ozone has become an increasingly important issue in developed nations, as the health effects of smog are more clearly understood. The monitoring of VOC ozone precursor compounds will continue to play a role in defining and reducing air pollution in developed and developing nations in the next decade. The data presented here shows the excellent results of improved separation via Elite-624Sil MS column with real world samples, simplified column connections to the Dean Switching device and trap with modernized triple bed trap with guard zone technologies.
