Simple analysis of Small Polar molecules
Analysis of polar and reactive species – such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and formic acid – is slow and complicated when using conventional chromatographic methods. SIFT-MS simplifies detection of small polar species by analyzing them directly from gas or headspace to sub-ppbV concentrations, without requiring derivatization or preconcentration.
Applications of SIFT-MS for analysis of challenging compounds include:
- Residual monomers and byproducts
- Residual solvents in pharmaceuticals
- Packaging impurities
Linear detection of formaldehyde in the ppbV range.
Small Polar Molecules benefits
Comprehensive analysis, including inorganics and chromatographically challenging compounds
Flexible sample delivery options, including automation and area sampling
Intuitive software and fast method development
High sensitivity and wide linearity range
Automated high-throughput headspace analysis
Small Polar Molecules resources
SIFT-MS represents a major breakthrough for the pharmaceutical industry due to its ability to comprehensively analyze diverse VOCs and inorganic gas impurities with very high sample throughput. It quantifies VOCs directly in real-time to sub-part-per-billion (ppb) concentrations, so that product issues are detected earlier and resolved immediately, delivering economic benefits to all stakeholders.

This application note investigates concentration dependence of MHE calibration in sample matrix. Across the full range of analytes investigated in this study, MHE calibration holds for at least one order of magnitude change in sample concentration. For analytes in the C7–C9 range, the MHE calibration applies over two orders of magnitude analyte concentration. These results mean that the MHE workflow can be applied to a wider range of samples in the matrix, further reducing calibration demand.
