The system features Multiple Ion Detection allowing scan-to-scan monitoring.

Thermo Electron Corporation has announced that its DFS High Resolution GC/MS system is capable of performing confirmation analyses of dioxins and furans in the low femtogram range.

The system helps governmental, industrial and commercial laboratories conducting environmental monitoring analyses comply with the strict US EPA and EU directives.

These regulations call for lower detection limits for dioxins and furans in food, environmental and biological samples in order to meet ever decreasing exposure levels.

The recently introduced directives require limits of quantitation (LOQ) for dioxin confirmation to be 80% lower than the lowest reported level in the regulation.

Thermo’s DFS High Resolution GC/MS system with two Trace GC Ultras™ and a TriPlus™ Autosampler achieves the lowest LOQs, thus enabling rapid sample preparation and higher sample throughput.

Thermo’s DFS High Resolution GC/MS system features Multiple Ion Detection (MID) allowing scan-to-scan monitoring while it can be adapted to suit different application needs.
