The Torion® T-9 GC/MS is the world's smallest portable GC/MS, and is fast, reliable, and easy to use. The integrated system features a low thermal mass capillary gas chromatograph with high-speed temperature programming and a miniaturized toroidal ion trap mass spectrometer (TMS) with a mass range from 41 to 500 Daltons. Samples are injected using a novel CUSTODION® solid phase microextraction (SPME) fiber syringe or a needle trap (CUSTODION-NT).

Our entire Torion T-9 GC/MS system is totally self-contained, weighs 32 pounds, and is rechargeable battery operated. It is easy to operate, with a color touch screen user interface or a simple three button navigation. The system's speed and portability makes it ideal for analysis outside your lab.

On-site Analysis of VOCs Emitted from Plants Using Headspace SPME and Portable GC/MS

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are chemically diverse and abundant in nature. Biogenic VOCs are present in and emitted by most plant parts and play an essential role in plant communication, pollinator/predator attraction, plant-bacterial interactions, defense, and ecology. Analysis of the VOCs em ...

Rapid Fingerprinting of Volatile Components in Coffee Varieties Using Torion T-9 Portable GC/MS

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 i ...
