Rapid Screening and Quantitation of Hazardous Volatile Impurities in Personal Care Products by Headspace-SIFT-MS

This publication describes the suitability of headspace-SIFT-MS as a potential all-in-one approach to the combined analysis of benzene, 1,4-dioxane, and formaldehyde in personal care products (PCPs).  The results suggest that the headspace SIFT-MS method may hold an 8- to 30-fold throughput advantage over conventional GC-MS analyses.

Quantitative Analysis of NDMA in Drug Products

This paper describes a proposed high-throughput method for analyzing nitrosamines in drug product using Headspace–SIFT-MS.  In this study, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) was quantified directly and rapidly from drug product without dissolution, at levels well below the regulatory acceptable intake of 96 ng day−1.  Use of the novel MHE-SIFT-MS approach may enable a wider screening of drug products to be conducted, since it provides around a three-fold increase in daily sample throughput.
