Torion T-9

The Torion T-9 GC-TMS features a low thermal mass capillary gas chromatograph (GC) with high speed temperature programming (>2 ºC/sec) and a miniature toroidal ion trap mass spectrometer (TMS) with a nominal unit mass resolution over a mass range of 50 to 500 Daltons. The system is self-contained and has an on-board helium GC carrier gas supply cartridge (2500 psig, 90 cc). The Torion T-9 GC-TMS features electronic pressure control (EPC) of the helium GC carrier gas. New additions to the Torion T-9 include expanded on-board library search capabilities, calibration and performance validation routines, addition of the NIOSH database, quantitative results, and the addition of two new sampling accessories.

Sample Introduction
Vapor/Gas; Liquid;
Sensitivity/Detection Limits
ppb
Known Interferents/Inhibitors
GC/MS is highly selective for volatile and semi volatile 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.
Start Up Time (From Cold Start To Sample Ready)
< 5 minutes
Response Time (Sample Application To Output)
<15 minutes; > 5 minutes, based upon chemical retention time
Software Control
On-board, PC
