Gas Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry [GC-MS]
Arcinova are now equipped with an Agilent GC-MS with EI/CI Source and GERSTEL multi-purpose sampler with liquid and headspace capacity. Headspace sampling is excellent for the qualitative or quantitative analysis of volatile species in samples that can be efficiently partitioned into the headspace gas volume from either a liquid or solid matrix. It is also a good technique of the analysis of samples where the entire samples should not be injected into the GC instrument (i.e. dirty samples). Headspace sampling is also particularly amenable to the analysis of trace levels of analytes.
The introduction of the GC-MS system provides ARCINOVA with the extra capability of working with small volatile molecules.
