Gas Chromatography – Ion Mobility Spectrometry


Gas Chromatography – Ion Mobility Spectrometry (GC-IMS) is a highly sensitive sample analysis technique able to analyse samples resulting in a 2D data matrix which can be used to compare different samples to one another or to a reference sample.

The GAS FlavourSpec is a sensitive analytical device for the analysis of headspace from a wide variety of samples. The combination of the GC with an IMS system allows for fast sample analysis combined with sensitivity from an IMS without sample pre-treatment. The FlavourSpec features an autosampler for direct headspace injection for higher throughput. The auto sampler also has a temperature-controlled sample tray fitted to assist with sample stabilisation during the analysis time, and an agitator and heater for headspace sample preparation.
