SIFT-MS quantifies diverse volatiles found in a wide variety of automotive industry applications in real-time with very high selectivity and sensitivity.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and inorganic gases are emitted from diverse automotive components, assembled motor vehicle cabins and as combustion by-products from motor vehicles. Some emissions are highly toxic (including the carcinogens benzene and formaldehyde), some have nuisance value (e.g. causing sensitization) but most are contributors to smog.
Rapid, on-site vehicle interior air quality (VIAQ) testing
Vehicle interior air quality (VIAQ) has been of concern to both car manufacturers and the public for some time, along with the possible health impact of this “new car smell”. This has led to several countries imposing concentration limits on a range of VOCs.
Currently, these standards are based around two traditional laboratory-based analytical methods: gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). These methods are expensive, have slow sample turnaround, require trained laboratory technicians and are incompatible with rapid testing on the production line or in the parking lot.
The high-speed, sensitive analysis provided by SIFT-MS makes it ideally suited to testing of chemically diverse VOCs in the vehicle interior air quality application.
SIFT-MS eliminates expensive sampling consumables, sample preparation prior to analysis and delays arising from laboratory-based analyses. Syft Technologies’ instruments are also extremely easy to use and are designed for industrial applications. Combined, these benefits provide instant feedback on the acceptability of every vehicle coming off the production line.

Syft Tracer: The Next Generation of Volatile Impurities Analysis for Enhanced Workflows
This app note introduces the next generation of SIFT-MS, Syft TracerTM, which launched at Pittcon 2023. It revolutionizes volatile impurities analysis workflows through unparalleled speed, performance stability, and reproducibility. Learn about how this innovation to real-time trace gas detection outpaces chromatography-based methods in the analysis of challenging analytes such as formaldehyde in a PEG excipient.
Recent developments and applications of selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT‐MS)
SIFT‐MS is now recognized as the most versatile analytical technique for the identification and quantification of trace gases down to the parts‐per‐trillion by volume, pptv, range. This statement is supported by the wide reach of its applications, from real‐time analysis, obviating sample collection of very humid exhaled breath, to its adoption in industrial scenarios for air quality monitoring. This review touches on the recent extensions to the underpinning ion chemistry kinetics library and the alternative challenge of using nitrogen carrier gas instead of helium.
