Software, TOF/MS Simplify GC Applications
ALMSCO International has a suite of products suited for trace-level organic chemical analysis. Its high-performance TOF mass spectrometer, BenchTOF-dx, provides analysts with the capability to capture reference-quality full spectral information at traditional SIM detection limits. Combining selectivity, stability and speed with full spectral sensitivity, the TOF/MS delivers high-definition mass spectrometry and enhanced performance for every GC application. Rugged and robust in routine operation, the unit can easily handle advanced research. It offers identification and measurement of both target compounds and unknowns in highly complex matrices at the lowest possible levels. The company has also launched a new version of TargetView, a software package for compound identification following GCMS analysis. Capable of detecting and identifying both targeted and unknown compounds in complex GCMS chromatograms, for either trace-level work or for routine screening, the software has been designed for all GCMS analysts irrespective of their field of work. The software delivers rapid screening of chromatograms against compound libraries, and provides the analyst with the capability to quickly and easily create bespoke spectral libraries. In addition to this, a new batch-processing option now allows multiple files to be screened against a single library, saving a considerable amount of time for the analyst.
