Rapid Evaluation of Olive Oil Oxidative Status, Using SIFT-MS
Determination of oxidative status of olive oils is an important component of assigning quality labels, such as extra virgin, but sample throughput is an issue for conventional sensory and instrumental test methods. This application note describes a simple, rapid, and highly sensitive test for determining the degree of oxidation of olive oil based on SIFT-MS.
Process-Line Monitoring of Coffee Aroma, Using SIFT-MS
Generation of a consistent flavor profile from each coffee roast requires a high degree of skill due to natural variations in beans and the dynamic nature of flavor formation during roasting. Applying SIFT-MS for real-time analysis of volatile compounds during coffee roasting has potential to support production of consistent quality coffee.
Rapid Classification of Beef Aroma Quality Using SIFT-MS
Aroma is an important characteristic in the acceptance of beef by consumers, and preference is often culturally dependent. Traditional grading of aroma quality has been carried out using sensory analysis of very limited numbers of samples, due to the cost of sensory analysis and the lack of appropriate technologies to replace the human olfactory system.
Headspace Analysis of Italian And New Zealand Parmesan Cheeses
In this application note, SIFT-MS was used to compare four New Zealand cheeses marketed as “parmesan” with four Italian Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano cheeses. A total of 38 volatile compounds in the cheese headspace were monitored with headspace concentrations varying between single digit parts per billion (ppb) to tens of parts per million (ppm). When the results were subjected to multivariate statistical analysis, a clear discrimination was found between the New Zealand “parmesan” and Italian cheeses.

Optimize Environmental Monitoring Using Direct Mass Spectrometry
This webinar introduces environmental applications of SIFT-MS ranging from real-time ambient air monitoring to high-throughput soil and water analysis. Learn how diverse VOCs (such as benzene and formaldehyde) and inorganic gases (such as sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide) are detected in a single, simple analysis.
Rapid Analysis of BTEX in Soil Using Methanolic Extraction
Combining direct analysis using selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) and automated sample preparation, determination of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and the xylenes (BTEX) in soil via methanolic extraction is simplified and accelerated. This application note provides an initial validation of the automated SIFT-MS method and demonstrates that the sample throughput achievable with SIFT-MS is at least two-fold higher than gas chromatography (GC).
Rapid Analysis of BTEX in Water using Automated SIFT-MS
Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) combined with GERSTEL automation greatly simplifies analysis of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and the xylenes (BTEX) in water. This application note demonstrates the linearity, repeatability and sensitivity achievable with automated SIFT-MS. Automated static headspace (SH)-SIFT-MS provides sample throughputs at least three-fold higher than traditional purge-and-trap-gas chromatography methods.
Routine Analysis 4: Direct MS Simplifies Analysis of Challenging Compounds
This webinar focuses on case studies that demonstrate simple analysis of chromatographically challenging compounds. Formaldehyde receives special attention, as it is important across a wide range of industries (from environmental to pharmaceutical testing). The formaldehyde case study also includes validation of an unconventional analytical method in compliance with ICH Q2(R1) guidelines for regulatory submission.
Routine Analysis 2: Routine Lab Procedures Are Easy to Apply to Direct MS
Learn how you can adopt direct mass spectrometry in your routine analysis workflow. Adaptation of routine procedures and techniques to automated SIFT-MS will be illustrated with case studies applicable to environmental, consumer product and biomedical laboratory testing. In particular, a head-to-head comparison of GC/MS and SIFT-MS for headspace analysis of volatiles in blood plasma will be described.
Routine Analysis 1: Why Labs and CROs Should Adopt Direct MS
This webinar demonstrates the advantages of applying automated SIFT-MS to volatile compound analysis in diverse matrices: from air to the headspace of polymer, soil or water samples. SIFT-MS is not simply advantageous for throughput reasons; it can also support faster method optimization for conventional methods. We include example data and case studies from a range of application areas ranging from pharmaceutical to environmental analysis.
SIFT-MS Solutions For Research
SIFT-MS is a robust analytical technique that addresses the limitations of GC/MS (the incumbent technique). It quantifies VOCs and SVOCs in real-time, with low part-per-trillion detection limits (by volume; pptv), and very wide linear and dynamic ranges. This brochure outlines the benefits that Syft Technologies’ instruments can provide to researchers in a wide range of disciplines.
