This webinar will explore the capabilities and benefits of SIFT-MS, a new tool designed for real-time, selective and economical trace gas and headspace analysis.

Over the course of the webinar, the speakers will cover how SIFT-MS uses chemical ionization to quantify volatile compounds, including chromatographically challenging ones such as formaldehyde, formic acid and ammonia.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

  • How real-time analysis works
  • How SIFT-MS is used in the pharmaecutical industry
  • How SIFT-MS adds value over traditional analytical processes

This webinar is brought in association with Syft Technologies, with a guest speaker from Anatune Limited.
