We use the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler, with its huge range of unique accessories, to automate the processing of your samples.

This gives seamless integration with Agilent Technologies’ GC and GC-MS platforms and Syft Technologies' SIFT-MS instruments.
If you are involved in analytical R&D, you just don’t know where your research will lead, or what you may have to do tomorrow.

For sample preparation, automation may well be important to you and you will certainly benefit from the great flexibility the GERSTEL MultiFlex MPS gives you.
AutoPrep solutions, based upon the GERSTEL MPS are built with three things in mind: dependability, throughput and low consumable costs.

All have been tested in our laboratory and come with unlimited application support.
SIFT-MS joins GC-MS and LC-MS as one of the three essential tools that every analytical chemist should have.

SIFT-MS measures the concentrations of volatile substances (organic and inorganic) simply, directly and in real time.
The CF200 Robotic Centrifuge is capable, compact and integrates full with the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler.

The CF200 can process up to six samples simultaneously for maximum productivity.
Anatune knows the importance of excellent support.

High Peak Health and Safety Challenge

Recently two of our application chemists Kathy Ridgway and Jon Dunscombe visited Buxton in the Peak District with the SIFT-MS.  The aim of the trip was to investigate the use of the Voice200Ultra SIFT-MS instrument for some rather interesting applications.

We have now had the Voice200Ultra  in our applications lab in Cambridge for two years.  During this time we have discussed and tried many applications with very interesting results.

The Health and Safety Laboratory came to us with some interesting ideas where they had been asked to test/analyse things which were proving a little tricky with conventional methods.

A number of applications were investigated:

  1. Real-time multicomponent mixtures of standards from a calibration rig.  The SIFT-MS was used to measure a change in concentration of a range of compounds in a calibration test rig.  This was done in real-time which usually is difficult to achieve especially with mixtures of compounds.  This work also highlights the dynamic range of the SIFT-MS.
  2. Emissions from a 3D printer.  Recently there have been many videos showing the marvels of what can now be printed.  This has raised a question about the emissions released during printing, an experiment was set up to measure the volatiles being produced.
  3. Chloramines; many of us are aware of the swimming pool smell but what is causing this?  An experiment was set up where urine was mixed with bleach with the SIFT-MS monitoring for potential compounds released.
  4. Leak testing, how do you measure if a certain packaging material is suitable to hold a particular item?  Ideally you would need an instrument that can measure breakthrough at very low levels in real-time to a certain level of accuracy.  This is why we have investigated doing just that with the SIFT-MS.
  5. Peracetic acid and acetic acid are sometimes a little tricky to analyse but the suitability of the SIFT-MS was investigated.

You can find an application note showing some of the data here.

If you have any interesting applications for which SIFT-MS could help you, please get in touch.

In general we find that the applications suited to the SIFT-MS fall into two categories; the first being compounds or applications that are very difficult to measure by other means, for example compounds like formaldehyde or where there is a requirement for on-line real-time quantitative analysis, or for applications where high sample throughput is very important.
