Methyl-tert-butyl ether (MTBE) and the combination of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX), are routinely monitored in soil and ground water to determine whether petroleum contamination has occurred due to industrial runoff, or waste water effluent, in order to protect local tributaries and surrounding property1-2. For industrial environmental monitoring programs, the ability to quickly analyze samples taken from nearby ground and water sources is key to environmental protection. The ability to analyze samples at the source, without the need for fixed laboratory analysis, can result in significant time and cost savings, and in the case of a spill, can lead to improved response times.
Sampling using the Custodion® SPME syringe, with separation and analysis using the Torion® T-9 portable GC/MS, allows rapid and on-site sample extraction and analysis, and provides actionable results within minutes. Using the portable Torion T-9 GC/MS, informed decisions can be made in critical situations, and can optimize follow-up activities by providing the user with the appropriate information to determine which, and if, samples should be sent to a laboratory for confirmatory analysis. In addition, on-site sample collection, extraction and analysis, using SPME and the Torion T-9 GC/MS, minimizes target analyte losses, compared to traditional techniques that risk analyte loss during complex storage and transport conditions, therefore ensuring the integrity of critical and valuable samples.
Learn how to detect whisky and spirits adulteration using a field-portable GC/MS through this note.
Coffee is widely consumed as a beverage because of the stimulating effect it produces in humans. The aroma of coffee contributes to the flavor and taste of the beverage and has consequently led to extensive research on coffee. Hundreds of volatile/semi-volatile aroma and flavor compounds have been identified in coffee using traditional laboratory based headspace GC/MS systems1. We present a study for rapid fingerprinting of coffee volatile/semi-volatile compounds using solid phase micro-extraction (SPME) coupled to a portable GC/MS system for separation and detection.
The on-site analysis of coffee using portable technology can be used for quick quality control check of raw and finished products, comparison of competitor products, analysis of storage conditions or for process development.
There is a growing demand for the analysis of trace levels of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds in air, water and solid matrix samples under harsh conditions in remote, field-based locations. This study has demonstrated that it is now possible to achieve laboratory-grade performance with a portable GC/MS combined with rapid sample preparation/introduction techniques. This combination enables a wide variety of environmental-based assays for both quantitative and qualitative screening purposes, which can provide fast, actionable data for non-technical and inexperienced operators in the field. It has been demonstrated in this technical note that the Torion T-9 GC/MS system has identified and characterized a suite of high boiling point organochlorine pesticides in tea samples in less than 10 minutes.
The ability to screen soil samples in the field by identifying volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is a valuable tool where sampling decisions are required in near real-time. Results of the screening procedure may be used to guide sample collection activities, and can help identify which sampling and/or extraction methods are most effective.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Screening Method 3815 provides limited VOC concentration information by only reporting an estimate of the total VOC concentration in a sample. This method uses a photoionization detector (PID) without any separation technique, thus individual VOCs and their relative concentrations are not identified and reported.1 Sampling using the Custodion® SPME syringe, with separation and analysis using the Torion®T-9 portable GC/MS, was used to positively identify 37 VOCs and their relative concentrations in the field in under three minutes.
Crime scenes, chemical spills, environmental contaminants – our Custodion family of sampling devices enable you to accurately analyze and get the results you need, quickly and efficiently.
Whether you’re testing gaseous compounds, liquid phases, or solid materials, there’s a Custodion solution specially designed for you and your science. Unlike ordinary syringes, ours are easy to handle – even while wearing bulky protective gear – so you can analyze samples with perfect precision every time.
Our one-handed Custodion syringes feature a hard-plastic design and retractable ballpoint pen-style handle, making it versatile and easy for you to operate in the field. The click-button actuator at the top of the handle enables the syringe to function as both a collection device and gas chromatography (GC) injector simply by extending or retracting the SPME fiber/CME wire from the protective, blunt 19-gauge needle.
What’s more, the Custodion design allows the Torion® T-9 to be the only portable GC/MS on the market that can easily transition from one Custodion sampling device to another without changing the instrument interface. So you can remain focused on the task at hand.
Our Custodion portfolio includes novel sample collection and injection devices used for in-field sampling and gas chromatographic (GC) injections. When used with the Torion® T-9 portable GC/MS system, the Custodion sampling devices are a quick, easy, and reliable way to collect and analyze complex samples in the field.
The Custodion handles were designed with the field user in mind. They’re made of hardened plastic for robust, durable operation, even while wearing heavy protective gear. The push-button trigger on top operates like a ballpoint pen. Each sampler comes with a screw-on/off cap to protect your samples during transport and storage.
The entire Custodion portfolio includes three different sampling devices that provide you with an all-encompassing, flexible solution that meet the diverse, changing needs of sample analysis in the field.
Custodion SPME (solid-phase microextraction) contains a 1 cm fiber coated with a material that traps, concentrates and removes chemical compounds from the sample matrix by adsorption. SPME is ideal for qualitative screening of liquid, solid, gas and soil samples by sampling the headspace over the sample matrix. SPME can be directly exposed to water samples to extract chemical contaminants, as well as collect VOC profiles of fuels, fragrances and food/beverages.
Sample preparation in the field can be difficult with limited resources and time, and your choice of sampling devices can make all the difference. Our rugged Custodion® samplers allow you to achieve quick and reliable results all while on-site with minimal preparation. Our Custodion portfolio includes novel collection and injection devices used for in-field sampling and gas chromatographic (GC) injections. When used with the Torion® T-9 portable GC/MS system, the Custodion devices are a quick, easy, and reliable way to collect and analyze complex samples in the field. Our Custodion line of devices offers an encompassing, flexible solution that meets the diverse and challenging needs of in-field analysis.
Take the Torion T-9 portable GC/MS to your samples…wherever they are.
PerkinElmer's Torion® T-9 portable gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MS) brings new meaning to portability. At a total weight of only 32 pounds, this one of-a-kind GC/MS is also fast, reliable and easy to use. Torion technology integrates a high speed low thermal mass (LTM) capillary gas chromatograph (GC) with a miniaturized toroidal iontrap mass spectrometer to provide a fast, reliable and easy-to-operate GC/MS.
The portable Torion T-9 GC/MS is designed to carry in the field and ideal for rapid screening of chemicals such as environmental volatiles and semivolatiles (VOCs/SVOCs), explosives, chemical threat, and hazardous substances.
Over the years, many types of analytical instruments have been reduced to a portable or hand-held format to be used in the field, including XRF, LIBS, Raman, FT-IR and NIR analyzers. However, shrinking a gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MS) to a field-portable configuration, whilst maintaining laboratory analytical performance, is a much greater challenge. Most of the previous attempts have utilized “point-and-shoot” approaches, which have not required any type of sample preparation or sample introduction accessories. For that reason, the practical value of a field-portable instrument is reduced significantly if it necessitates complex sample preparation or delicate procedures are required to introduce the sample into the gas chromatograph.
In this technical note, we describe results from a novel, field-portable GC/MS system (Torion®T-9, PerkinElmer Inc., Shelton, CT) for use as a rapid screening tool for semi volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) and in particular phenolic compounds and phthalate esters in water samples with a typical analysis time of less than 10 minutes.
