Introduction

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry technology is an analytical approach used for the separation and analysis of samples that are able to be vaporized without thermal decomposition. It is one of the most frequently applied analytical techniques for both quality and quantity chemical.

Advantages

  • GC-MS process is presented that allows to identify components in a liquid mixture and enable to determine their relative concentration.

  • Simultaneous and highly specific detection for screening as well as confirmation of drug candidates can be conducted in GC-MS procedure in one single step.

Process

The sample is firstly mixed with a solvent and then injected into the gas chromatography, the sample solution can be vaporized into the gas phase quickly.The separation of components in GC-MS is carried out based on differences in behavior between a flowing mobile gas phase and a stationary liquid phase.

Services

We have established multiple mass spectrometry approaches in BOC Sciences for high sensitive and selective screening as well as utilize them in a diversity of applications to support your drug discovery projects.

  • Our team has established GC-MS instruments and equipment to separate, quantify and identify different mixtures of small and volatile compounds.

  • We also provide residual solvent measurement for purity analysis for synthesis of a drug candidate before the follow-up toxicity testing, helping to improve efficiency in the early stage of drug discovery.
