GC-MS with Cold EI (also known as Supersonic GC-MS) can be applied with few major advantages to practically all GC-MS analysis types as demonstrated in it over 100 publications and applications listed below. We publish on a weekly basis examples of some of our results at the Advanced GC-MS Blog Journal and we beieve that we have more advanced GC-MS applications than any other vendor in this area. The main features of enhanced molecular ion, improved confidence in sample identification, significantly increased range of thermally labile and low volatility samples amenable for analysis, much faster analysis, improved sensitivity particularly for compounds that are hard to analyze and the many other features and options provide compelling reasons to use the GC-MS with Cold EI in broad range of areas including:
- Petrochemical and hydrocarbons analysis
Forensic analysis (arson, explosives, drugs, unknowns)
Service and institution GC-MS analysis
High end research GC-MS
Pesticide analysis, food safety and quality
Pharmaceutical and drug analysis
We have experience with an extensive range of GC-MS with Cold EI applications, and perhaps one or few among those overlap with your field of interest. Thus, please communicate with us about your challenging applications and we shall be happy to develop a 5975-SMB GC-MS method for your application and needs, based on our discussions and your samples. We shall analyze your samples and provide you with a file of the results and our further suggestions and recommendations for your consideration.
Note that the Aviv Analytical 5975-SMB GC-MS can serve as an alternative to many LC-MS analyses with several advantages including the ability to use library for easy sample identification (plus isotope abundance analysis), having fragment information with extended structural and isomer information in a low cost single quad system, having uniform semi quantitative response (unlike ESI) that can provide semi-quantitative data for unknowns without calibration, elimination of ion suppression effects and the fact that GC-MS has a one easy-to-employ method that encompasses most of its applications in contrast to LC-MS that requires lengthy method development for each new sample.
The Aviv Analytical 5975-SMB GC-MS with Cold EI (EI of cold molecules in a supersonic molecular beam) has many advantageous features as listed in the Supersonic GC-MS page.
The following are a few lists of features that make the 5975-SMB GC-MS with Cold EI (Supersonic GC-MS) especially useful for the indicated application:
Petrochemical and hydrocarbons analysis: Significantly enhanced molecular ions that are always observed, isomer and structurally significant mass spectral peaks and extended range of low volatility hydrocarbons that are amenable for analysis including waxes up to C74H150 makes the 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS a most valuable GC-MS, particularly in comparison with standard GC-MS that often fails to enable hydrocarbon identification due to lack of molecular ions and similarity of low mass fragments. The Aviv Analytical 5975-SMB is also uniquely compatible with the pulsed flow modulation GCxGC 20 ml/min second column flow rate requirements. We analyzed broad range of petrochemicals, fuels and hydrocarbon mixtures, including gasoline, kerosene, naphthenic acids, diesel fuel, various oil types, transformer oil, Biodiesel, wax and broad range of geochemical samples. A special isomer abundance analysis method was developed for fuel characterization. We shall be happy to show you our results and demonstrate the capabilities of the 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS on your sample. For detailed information please read A. B. Fialkov and A. Amirav "Hydrocarbons and Fuel Analysis with the Supersonic GC-MS - The Novel Concept of Isomer Abundance Analysis". J. Chromatogr. A. 1195, 127-135 (2008). The combination of extended range and enhanced molecular ion is demonstrated in the enclosed Wax by SMB Figure.
Geochemical research: Significantly enhanced molecular ions that are always observed (can be dominant for hopanes/stearanes), major isomer and structurally significant mass spectral peaks, extended range of low volatility hydrocarbons that are amenable for analysis and unique isotope ratio information (without combustion) plus the ability to perform unique isomer abundance analysis for oil origin correlation make the 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS a most valuable GC-MS for organic geochemical applications as demonstrated in the enclosed Geochemistry by SMB Figure (obtain with David Zinniker)
Forensic (arson, explosives, drugs, unknowns): Enhanced and trustworthy molecular ions, extended range of thermally labile compounds amenable for analysis including all the major labile explosives, isotope abundance analysis software for improved sample identification, ChromatoProbe solid sample introduction device (connected simultaneously with another column), Open Probe and ultra fast GC-MS analysis make the Supersonic GC-MS the ideal Forensic GC-MS system. With the Supersonic GC-MS you could get a step closer to make the CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) TV scenes with GC-MS a reality. Touch the sample, push it inside the GC-MS and get in a few seconds an accurate answer on the type of mixture or compound analyzed. We shall be happy to further explain how this vision can be better addressed with the 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS, just ask us about it. The enclosed TATP by SMB Figure demonstrates TATP analysis with its two conformer peaks, in less then two minutes and with dominant molecular ion. The 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS is capable of achieving <0.1 pg LOD on the TATP molecular ion.
Environmental analysis: Enhanced molecular ions, extended range of compounds amenable for analysis, superior sensitivity particularly for compounds that are the bottleneck of the whole analysis and faster analysis are the main attractive features of the Supersonic GC-MS. Examples include much lower LOD for phthalates such as dinonylphthalate and didecylphthalate in the 8270 method analysis or much larger PAHs amenable for analysis such as decacyclene, ovalene and even C60, degradation free analysis of carbamazepine and its metabolites in treated sewage water and steroid analysis without derivatization.
Pesticide analysis and food safety: Enhanced molecular ions, extended range of compounds amenable for analysis, superior sensitivity for those pesticides that are the bottleneck of the whole analysis and faster analysis are the main attractive features of the 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS. The enhanced molecular ion and lack of ion source peak tailing and degradation can further serve for improved sensitivity and selectivity. We found that SIM on the molecular ion is as clean and free from matrix interference as MS-MS on a fragment. As a result, the 5975-SMB can uniquely serve for universal pesticide analysis with simultaneous full scan and target pesticides SIM with extended range of "LC-MS pesticides". Isotope abundance analysis provides greater confidence level in the pesticide identification. The ability to analyze the full range of carbamate pesticides and many of the LC-MS pesticides makes the 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS the ideal system to provide confirmatory pesticide identification to supplement and complement LC-MS and further analyze those few pesticides that are difficult by both LC-MS and GC-MS (Captan, Captafol Folpet etc). For further information please read M. Kochman, A. Gordin, P. Goldshlag, S. J. Lehotay and A. Amirav "Fast, High Sensitivity, Multi-Pesticide Analysis of Complex Mixtures with the Supersonic GC-MS" J. Chromatog. A. 974, 185-212 (2002). and A. B. Fialkov, A. Gordin and A. Amirav "Extending the
Compounds Amenable for Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry Analysis" J. Chromatog. A. 991, 217-240 (2003).
Pharmaceutical and drug analysis: The supersonic GC-MS is the only GC-MS that can analyze medium size drugs that are not amenable for standard GC-MS analysis including Reserpine Itraconazole, underivatized steroids etc. In addition, unlike LC-MS the 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS provides quantitative information on drug synthesis yield and on the abundance of drug contamination, it has no ion suppression effects and the analysis are fast, under 8 min analysis cycle time. Our 5975-SMB is the only mass spectrometry system with uniform, approximately compound independent response, which as a result enables the quantitative determination of drug impurities without their identification and response calibration.
Clinical toxicology: Enhanced molecular ions, extended range of compounds amenable for analysis, superior sensitivity for compounds that are the bottleneck of the whole analysis and faster analysis are the main attractive features of the Supersonic GC-MS for clinical toxicology. In addition, the 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS can serve to confirm (or reject) LC-MS identifications.
Food and fragrance: Enhanced molecular ions, isotope abundance analysis software for improved unknown sample identification, unique isomer mass spectral effects and compatibility with pulsed flow modulation GCxGC-MS make the Supersonic GC-MS the ideal GC-MS for the food and fragrance industry as an information generation machine.
High end research GC-MS: As a unique and powerful new technology the Supersonic GC-MS provides a rare opportunity to perform your GC-MS related research and obtain unique, insightful and publishable results. The Supersonic GC-MS can be used in all types of research and enable you to lead the way and obtain cutting edge new results. Please communicate with us and we shall be happy to analyze your challenging sample and demonstrate how the Supersonic GC-MS can help you.
Service and institution GC-MS: Enhanced and trustworthy molecular ions, significant structural and isomer mass spectral effects, isotope abundance analysis software for improved sample identification and for the provision of elemental formulas (as required for journal publications) and significantly extended range of low volatility and thermally labile compounds amenable for analysis are all attractive features of the Supersonic GC-MS for service and institution GC-MS. Furthermore, unlike with LC-MS, the Supersonic GC-MS is operated with a one universal method which with minor changes encompasses the vast majority of analyses hence saving method development time. The 5975-SMB Supersonic GC-MS, in contrast to flow injection electrospray or MALDI, provides quantitative information on the yield of organic chemical reactions, on reaction by-products, products purity and on the availability of isomers. Unlike ESI or APCI LC-MS Cold EI with the 5975-SMB does not suffer from any ion suppression effect and provides uniform, compound independent response hence it uniquely provides quantitative analysis of your reaction products for its semi-on-line optimization. Combined with the provision of fast, real time analysis what else can be requested from institutional service GC-MS. It is truly the ideal GC-MS for institutes.
