  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) instrument separates chemical mixtures (the GC component) and identifies the components (Mass spectrometer component). The GC works on the principle that a mixture will separate into individual substances when heated. The heated gases are carried through a column with an inert gas (such as helium). As the separated substances emerge from the column opening, they flowinto the MS. Mass spectrometry identifies compounds by the mass to charge ratio (m/z) of the analyte molecule. A library of known mass spectra, covering several thousand compounds, is stored on a computer.

  User Instructions
