GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY and MASS SPECTROMETRY (GC-MS)

Aim of the device: Analyses of gasses and volatile compounds. Quantitative and qualitative studies of organic, inorganic and biological samples and identification of their molecular structures.

Operation principle: Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry is a combination of two effective analytical methods. Gas chromatography separates the compounds of the mixture whereas mass spectrometry helps in the structural identification of each compound.

Application fields: Volatile fatty acids, alkaloids, terpenes, steroids, drugs, quantitative and qualitative analyses of oil products. Forensic medicine and drug analyses.

Active analyses of the device: Determination of fatty acid composition
