Gas Chromatography - High Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometry (GC-FAIMS)

Sensitive Detection and Identification of Volatile, Semivolatile and Nonvolatile Organic Compounds in complex Matrices

The GC-FAIMS combines the high selectivity of the chromatographic separation technique with the extraordinary sensitivity for the high field asymmetric ion mobility spectrometry. Therefore, the GC-FAIMS-combination is a very powerful analytical tool for a wide range of applications with excellent sensitivities. Field asymmetric ion mobility spectrometry (FAIMS), also known as differential mobility spectrometry (DMS), is a gas detection technology that separates and identifies chemical ions based on their mobility under a varying electric field at atmospheric pressure. FAIMS can be used to detect and to identify volatiles in aqueous, solid and gaseous matrices.
