Chemical and Petrochemical Inspections, L.P. (CPI) is proud to offer state-of-the-art chemical and petrochemical laboratory services to industrial clients throughout Southeast Texas. One of our core services is Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS), which is a type of analytical chemistry service that combines the features of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify and analyze chemical substances.
Understanding the Application of Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry
Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry has several important applications in the chemical, petrochemical, and industrial industries. First and foremost the role of GC-MS is to identify substances with a compound and detect the purity levels of different molecules. This is extremely important as it can help identify purity issues, pollution and contaminants, and other data that reveals the state of operations at a facility.
In particular GC-MS is used to detect organic pollutants within the sample which could indicate environmental and contamination issues for the site where the sample was taken. Thus, GC-MS helps industrial facilities ensure that they are fully compliant with environmental regulations. Additionally, GC-MS has a wide array of applications in other sectors such as law enforcement and criminal forensics, astrochemistry, medicine, food and beverage analysis, and security and chemical agent detection.
