- High temperature pyrolysis up to 1050 °C
- Superior performance due to exact temperature control, inert sample pathway, no dead volumes, no cold spots
GC and GC-MS Application System
Pyrolysis gas chromatography mass spectrometry (Py-GCMS) can be used to characterize most materials including insoluble and complex materials at trace levels often without any sample pretreatment e.g. polymers, plastics, rubber, paints, dyes, resins, coatings, cellulose, wood, textiles, oils etc.
The Multi-Shot Pyrolyzer EGA/PY 3030D with its vertical micro furnace is the top-class model in the series of multi-function pyrolyzers developed by Frontier Laboratories Ltd.
Screening Analysis of TSCA Regulated PIP(3:1)
Analysis of PIP (3:1) in Plastic by Py/TD-GC-MS
Based on Section6(h) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the United States Environmental Protection Agency(U.S.EPA) has started regulating phenol, isopropylated phosphate (3:1)(PIP(3:1)). We introduce an example of verifying that Py/TD-GC-MS can be applied to analyze PIP(3:1) in plastic.
What is a Method Package?
Method Package contains ready-to-use analytical conditions and sample pretreatment procedures optimized for Shimadzu mass spectrometers and specific analytical applications.
Shimadzu has released the Smart Metabolites Database™ Ver.2
The Smart Metabolites Database™ is a GC-MS(/MS) database that contains the information needed for analyzing metabolic components. In Ver.2, the number of registered components is increased to expand the reach of the analysis of food samples, focusing on plant secondary metabolites such as catechins and chlorogenic acids that are garnering interest as functional components to enable simultaneous analysis of over 600 components.
Shimadzu has released the Smart Aroma Database
Smart Aroma Database provides efficient and accurate aroma analysis using GC-MS(/MS). Information on more than 500 compounds that contribute to the aroma is registered in Smart Aroma Database™, enabling the objective evaluation and analysis of aroma compounds using GC-MS(/MS).
PBT Chemicals under TSCA - Analysis of PIP(3:1)
In 2021, under Section 6(h) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) addressed the problem of PIP (3:1) as a substance that has all three characteristics of a persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) chemical, and began to regulate the commercial process and distribution of PIP (3:1) and PIP (3:1)-containing products or articles within the United States
Shimadzu has released Py-Screener Ver.2
Shimadzu has released the LabSolutions DB GCMS for GCMS-QP series
GC/MS software for secure database management in compliance with regulations.
