- 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.
Anti-doping policies, rules and regulations are governed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Doping is not only harmful to athletes who take performance-boosting drugs, but also affects the integrity of a sport. Shimadzu instruments can help ensure clean sports and here are a few applications.
Shimadzu has released Peakintelligence™ for GCMS
Peakintelligence for GCMS is equipped with new AI peak integration algorithms that significantly shorten the time needed for peak integration in the GC/MS/MS quantitative processing work sequence. AI algorithms trained with peak integration know-how provide peak integration on par with that of an experienced user, so configuring or adjusting parameters is not required. In addition, the software can correctly detect low-concentration samples.
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
