New portable GC-MS technology for 'on-site' analysis
Torion Technologies (USA) has appointed Milton Keynes based
Quantitech to distribute a unique portable gas chromatograph
toroidal ion trap mass spectrometer (GC-TMS), in the UK and
-9 is the world's fastest and most portable GC-MS.
Combining a high speed GC with a miniaturised TMS in a
lightweight, field-portable instrument, the TRIDION™
-9 is designed to rapidly detect an enormous variety of
chemical compounds in the field.
The agreement provides Quantitech with exclusive rights to
all non-security markets, which MD Keith Golding believes
will provide opportunities in a wide variety of sectors:
"The collection and distribution of environmental samples
for laboratory analysis is an expensive, time-consuming
activity which can incur substantial delays. So, the ability
to conduct fast laboratory-grade analysis on-site, is a
tremendous advantage and one which features highly in many
of the new technologies that we are bringing to the market.
"In addition to environmental applications, we believe that
will also provide unique advantages in any situation
requiring fast, on-site, high quality analytical data -
quality control in the food sector, for example."
is able to analyse gaseous, liquid or solid samples, and a
range of CUSTODION™
solid phase microextraction (SPME) syringes have been
developed to provide this flexibility. Simple to operate and
able to produce results in under 3 minutes, the TRIDION ™-9
can be operated with the unit's touchscreen display, and
operating software facilitates configuration, data display
