Syft Application Talks 9: Mobile Measurements Using SIFT-MS

We are joined by Rebecca Wagner of Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratory at the University of York, United Kingdom.  At the University of York, a SIFT-MS instrument has been placed inside a mobile laboratory to measure the emission of atmospheric gases that contribute to air pollution. Hear the results of their study into local emission sources.

Online Demonstration - Continuous Monitoring with Real-Time Notifications from the Cloud

In this online demonstration we present a new capability that takes advantage of the latest developments in IOT and cloud-based data management to provide a simple and highly configurable internet-based notification system, for example via SMS and/or email alerts.  Fenceline monitoring is one application where immediate notification of concentration variances is desirable and Syft continues to develop new tools to provide this functionality for our customers.

Syft App Talks #18. Simultaneous Analysis of Multiple Classes of Organic Compounds using SIFT-MS

This webinar describes the work of Doctors Mitch Rubenstein and Anthony Qualley, USAF, Dayton OH whose team develops new sampling media that can collect multiple classes of organic compounds.  SIFT-MS was used to observe a wide array of compounds that normally would require a large number of techniques. We show data for amino alcohols, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, etc. SIFT-MS also allowed the observation of low molecular weight compounds such as methanol and formaldehyde that would normally fall outside the range of conventional mass spectrometry. Cleared for public distribution: 88ABW-2020-2280.

Syft App Talks #21. SIFT-MS BTEX Analysis Following Methanolic Extraction of Soil

Can SIFT-MS replace GC/MS as the analyzer in a method that uses methanolic extraction? The answer is yes!  Dr. Mark Perkins presents the results of method validation for methanolic extraction of BTEX from soil, and applies the method to analysis of several certified reference materials (CRMs).

Syft Application Talks #11. Design Requirement for Breath Clinical Studies

SIFT-MS’s high-throughput analysis of breath (whether directly, from sampling bags, or from thermal desorption tubes) means that it is an ideal instrument for breath research. In this presentation, Professor Hanna summarizes what he and his research team have implemented in terms of best practices based on years of breath research.

Syft Application Talks 12: Development of Breath Test for Esophageal Cancer

Who could be better qualified to explain the need for improved outcomes for people with upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers than renowned surgeon, researcher, and head of Imperial College’s Department Surgery and Cancer, Professor George Hanna? Prof. Hanna joined us at the 2020 European Online SIFT-MS User Meeting to describe his group’s breath research targeted at identifying upper GI cancers earlier. His work is reviewed and upcoming external validation studies are outlined.

Syft App Talks #19. Comparing SIFT-MS and GC/MS in a Biomedical Context: A Solvent and Its Metabolite in Plasma

Self-poisoning with professional agricultural pesticide products is responsible for about 20% of global suicide.  Fast detection could aid earlier identification of pesticide poisoning thus allowing faster intervention, reducing mortality.  We compare analysis by both automated headspace GC/MS and SIFT-MS.  The results obtained showed a four-fold increase in throughput for SIFT-MS over GC/MS.

Halitosis Diagnosis and Control Using SIFT-MS

We have used SIFT-MS for the analysis of volatiles from in vitro biofilm cultures inoculated with human tongue-derived biofilm prior to and following treatment with anti-malodor formulations. We have also used the SIFT-MS in clinical trial settings to measure the efficacy of a wide range of oral care products. This webinar will present the application of the SIFT-MS in halitosis research including current and future trends.

Syft App Talks #22. Closed System Transfer Devices – Performance Testing Using SIFT-MS

Dr. Mark Perkins (Anatune Limited, UK) and Alan Wilkinson (Biopharma Stability Testing Laboratory, UK) collaborated to evaluate SIFT-MS for determination of CSTDs using protocols previously developed by NIOSH (USA). Using propylene glycol methyl ether (PGME) as a surrogate, SIFT-MS detects sub-microlitre volume leaks from these devices.

Process and Specialty Gas Analysis Applications of Direct MS

In this webinar, we describe applications of SIFT-MS to diverse process and specialty gas applications.  The strength of SIFT-MS lies in the combination of four factors that other techniques lack:

  • Rapid analysis
  • Comprehensive compound detection, including highly reactive species
  • Selectivity
  • Simple, low-cost operation
