From analysis to answer

GC-MS, is gas chromatography with mass spectrometry. It is often these systems that are sold to the laboratory to perform biochemical analysis. The technology is based on the use of large technological platforms that are not adapted for industry use. These are expensive and require special skills to staff. In order to be able to analyze and realize an analysis method for the end-customer, several requirements specifications need to be set for the analytical instrumentation that is chosen, whereby a GC-MS will not meet the requirements specifications set by the market and customer.

The goal is to implement an analytical instrument that can be modified with such a standardized collection methodology that it can be used in a patient-friendly environment. The first option that should be considered to achieve this goal is through to use a compact, flexible, and user-friendly GC-UV instrument which is in principle a "plug-and-play" solution.

Sales to laboratories

Through the technology, comprehensive qualitative information and identification of a chemical substance can be done by analyzing an unknown sample. A GC-UV instrument can be made compact and lightweight through a design that provides opportunities to make analysis in close proximity to the sampling site. It will be an opportunity to take analytical chemistry from a laboratory environment to a patient-centered environment. The construction also provides a short start-up time and has relatively low instrument costs. GC-UV technology provides a very high sensitivity in terms of identification limits, classification limits and detection limits. The technique is particularly suitable for the identification of structural isomers.

In addition to organic compounds, inorganic compounds can also be determined with high sensitivity. Selective analysis can be performed for most chemical classes such as aliphatic aldehydes, pyridines, naphthalenes. Through UV spectrometry, a very precise identification can be made in otherwise unknown wavelength range.
