Webinar Annoucement – A New Dimension in Benchtop GC-MS

Tuesday, 18 February 2014 at 12:57:PM

Separation Science, in association with Markes International, offers you the exclusive chance to take part in an upcoming webinar that will introduce Select-eV, a new development in electron ionisation.

By David Sparkman (University of the Pacific, USA) &
Nick Bukowski (Markes International, UK)

Date: 26 February, 2014
Time: 8am PST / 11am EST / 4pm GMT / 5pm CET

What does it cover?

This webinar will introduce Select-eV, a revolutionary development in electron ionisation. Until now, soft ionisation by EI hasn't been successfully achieved without a significant sensitivity penalty. Select-eV provides the ability to switch effortlessly between hard and soft ionisation without any loss in sensitivity. This presentation will demonstrate how the underlying benefits of GC-TOF MS along with the ground-breaking capabilities of Select-eV technology have been combined into a compact analytical system, BenchTOF-Select.

What you will learn

Discover how variable energy electron ionisation can enhance your analysis by providing:

  • Speciation of compounds that exhibit similar/indistinguishable EI spectra at 70 eV 
  • Improvement in detection levels 
  • Increased molecular ion intensities 
  • Increased selectivity through a reduction in fragmentation

Why should you attend?

Keep up to date with cutting edge technologies for GC and GC×GC techniques, from wide ranging applications, including:

  • environmental screening
  • aroma profiling
  • crude oil fingerprinting

Select-eV enables you to detect and identify compounds that may have escaped notice in previous analytical set-ups.

Who should attend?

Scientists currently using GC-MS or GCxGC-MS for complex mixture analysis and who would benefit from the increased dimensionality that Select-eV offers.
