Real-time SIFT-MS analysis enables comprehensive characterization of odor sources
SIFT-MS is an ideal instrument for simply and quantitatively characterizing odor sources in diverse industries and applications. Once characterized, odor issues can be detected immediately and traced back to the source, leading to faster issue resolution. The figure shows odor compounds identified from the emission sources at a gelatin factory. The odor sources have very different emission profiles, facilitating remote identification of each odor source when odor issues arise.
Odorants arising from odor different sources in a gelatin factory (notice that the concentration axis is logarithmic).

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.
SIFT-MS: Quantifying the Volatiles You Smell . . . and the Toxics You Don’t
SIFT-MS has been widely applied to quantitative analysis of a broad range of VOCs in applications from food products to workplace safety to environmental monitoring, and most recently to pharmaceutical testing. This review surveys the applications of SIFT-MS in odor analysis and in workplace, environmental and consumer protection, with a particular focus on the complementarity of this real-time mass spectrometry analyzer to sensor technology and conventional laboratory techniques—in particular, gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC/MS).
