Real-time Identification and Quantitation of VOC’s
Jan 28 2008
Trials of the technology are already producing significant results that are presenting new commercial opportunities for a number of prospects in North America and Europe.
A key player in the US food industry has been particularly impressed with Syftâs ability to analyse key compounds in a range of dairy related products, opening up new opportunities for dairy processing, product development and quality control. The non-invasive nature of the technique continues to add significant value to a range of clinical trials and medical research being undertaken within New Zealand. A large multinational in the medical sector has already invested in the Voice range of instruments. Meanwhile Syftâs container air analysis applications continue to gather momentum as the dangers to health from fumigants and other toxic chemicals within containers are becoming more widely known and understood.
New applications for the Voice200â¢ are well underway, including oil & gas exploration and refining, food and flavour chemistry, as well as screening for toxic chemicals, contraband, explosives and bio-security threats. Syft Technologiesâ new Voice200â¢ analytical instrument uses the patented SIFT-MS technique to identify and qualify volatile organic
compounds (VOCs) in real-time. At less than half the weight of the Voice100â¢, with a 1/3 volume reduction and with detection limits to 50 parts per trillion (50pptv), the Voice200â¢ is a significant scientific and engineering breakthrough.
New features include a touch screen LCD for easy operation, lower power and consumable requirements, and a range of new options for sample presentation and analysis. A major advance is the instrumentâs ability to deliver negative ion capability, opening up a range of application areas that were previously difficult using the Voice100â¢.
The Voice200â¢ differs from competing mass spectrometry technologies in that it can detect and measure VOCs within seconds (such as all common fumigants below government mandated safety levels). It can also analyse whole-air even in humid samples such as breath, and it provides quantitative results that are consistent and reliable. It is designed
with push button simplicity and ease of use in mind. Unlike competing mass spectrometry techniques, no sample preparation is required, and the instrument can be operated with minimal training to deliver laboratory quality results.
