Sample Introduction
Vapor/Gas
Sensitivity/Detection Limits
ppb; ppm
Known Interferents/Inhibitors
GC/MS is highly selective for volatile and semivolatile organic compounds when used by a skilled operator. Low false positive/negative rates for target analytes. False IDs are more likely for unknowns (nontargets) since GC retention times cannot be compared to reference RTs.
