Filtering Out False Positives
A retention index tool called iMatch that aims to reduce the number of false positive results when using gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC–MS ) and comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC×GC–MS) has been developed by a team of researchers from the University of Louisville. Alasdair Matheson, editor of LCGC Europe, spoke to Xiang Zhang to find out more.
Automated One Step Direct to Vial Concentration and Evaporation. Do You Want a Cost Effective Replacement For Your Existing Concentration and Evaporation Techniques?
The FMS PowerVap is a standalone automated waterless concentration/evaporation system that replaces older techniques and instruments such as KD, nitrogen blow down, water baths and automates existing manual evaporation/concentration processes by concentrating directly into a vial for final analysis. The concentration process is performed automatically and unattended producing excellent precision and recoveries in minutes. The PowerVap Automated One Step Concentration System is built by design to simplify, improve and increase your productivity, lowering your labor costs and reduces errors.
