Analysis of samples in headspace using IMR-MS


Using the Agilent G1888 AutoSampler, offline gas samples in gas-tight sample vials can be analyzed automatically. The gas composition is measured using one of our V&F mass spectrometers. The control is performed completely by V&F software.

The high number of samples (70 sample vials and 12 heating oven positions) as well as the extreme sensitivity ensure excellent functionality for a wide range of analyses. The complete gas transfer - from the sampling needle via the sample gas line - is carried out using deactivated components and is thus chemically inert without degradation or loss of the analyte.
