Torion Technologies offers the TRIDION-9, a portable gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GC-MS) that integrates a high-speed low thermal mass capillary gas chromatograph with a miniaturized toroidal ion trap mass spectrometer. Samples are injected using a CUSTODION solid phase microextraction fiber syringe, which allows users to collect and concentrate analytes without other extraction equipment or solvents.
The TRIDION-9 is designed for rapid instrument startup and sample analysis. The system is ready for sample analysis in 5 min from a cold start and run-to-run cycle times are typically 5 min, allowing for analyses of 12 samples per hour.
With a color touchscreen, the user interface directs the operator through sample introduction and analysis. The onboard library automates target compound deconvolution and identification.
