Key Learning Objectives:

- Identify the biggest time-consuming activities that occur in the GC-MS workflow
- Learn a modern approach to minimize the time an operator spends on the data review, reporting, and complex method development


In the routine workflow of daily GC-MS operations, analysts spend the majority of their workday reviewing data and conducting maintenance activities. Today, many laboratories are also exploring the addition of MS/MS capabilities. Add the MS/MS dimension along with more complex method development to this workflow, and the analyst’s workload becomes even more challenging.

How can we mitigate this challenge? In this web seminar, we will demonstrate how the efficiency of data analysis can be improved through dynamic, interactive GC-MS data review and automated MS/MS method development. Additionally, we will illustrate some innovative ways to minimize downtime on the instrument for maintenance activities, whether planned or unplanned, to help alleviate this burden on the analyst. Common challenges and corresponding solutions will be presented throughout.

16 Poll: New Analytical GC-MS Method Creation When faced with developing a complex single quadrupole GC-MS method that includes close to one hundred target analytes in heavy matrix (soil, wastewater, oil) with varying compound types and concentrations, In my industry and in my lab I usually spend: - a month - a week - a day - nothing: the validated method is bestowed upon me Let’s look at how Method Development is handled in TraceFinder Software

17 Creating a Method using Method Forge

18 Method Forge Selections

19 Method Forge in Action

20 Method Completion

21 Selective Reaction Monitoring GC-MS/MS Methods Now let’s change that to developing an MS/MS triple quadrupole SRM method that includes close to one hundred analytes (two transitions each) still in heavy matrix (food, spices, serum) with widely varying concentrations and some low LODs In THAT case, in my industry and my lab I usually spend: - couple months - a few weeks - many days - I am still happy: the transitions are bestowed upon me Let’s look at how MS/MS SRM Methods are developed in TraceFinder Software

22 GC-MS/MS Method Development 1) Precursor ion selection 2) Product ion selection 3) Collision energy optimization SRMCreationWorkflow

23 Step 1 – Pick Your Precursor Ions

24 Step 2 – Pick Your Product Ions

25 Step 2 – Pick Your Product Ions

26 Step 3 – Optimize Your Transitions

27 Quick and Easy Export to TraceFinder Software

28 New Compound Data Store Created in TraceFinder

43 Poll: GC-MS Maintenance and Cleaning How often do you typically shut down your GC-MS for cleaning and maintenance? - once or twice a year; - once in a few months; - monthly; - after every few injections. Let’s look at the hardware design features aiding in GC-MS maintenance.

44 TRACE™ 1300/1310 GC: Designed with MS in Mind Minimal Septum Bleed, By Design. Immeasurable Air Diffusion*, By Design. No Gas Lines to Plumb, You Guess. * by Thermo Scientific Delta V Ion Ration Mass Spectrometer (irMS)

45 TRACE 1300/1310 GC: Fully Modular Design for Flexibility TCD SSL ECD FID ← PTV Future → No time for cleaning? Swap the entire Injector Module! Need another Detector? Order it later. Install it yourself in minutes. Share it! No GC Down Time.

46 • Heat the column up to 125 C/min • Run Full EPA Method 8270: • under 15 minutes (He) • under 12 minutes (H2) • with Thermo Scientific TRACE GOLD MT (Metal) Column • and TRACE GOLD HT (High Temperature) Columns High Speed Heating and Cooling for fastest cycle times TRACE 1300/1310 GC: Designed to Be Fast

47 ISQ™ Single Quadrupole MS: Anybody, for Maintenance? Pick Me, Pick Me! For, — ISQ is Designed for Robustness

48 Ion Source: Dual Orthogonal Filaments

49 Removing Neutrals Before the Quad and Detector

50 Keeping the Quad Clean for Longer Full Scan (FS), SIM and FS/SIM Quad Rods stay cleaner longer — thanks to the Pre-Filter… …still can be cleaned (if a need ever be)

51 Detect Your Ions, not Excited Neutrals Conversion dynode and discrete channel electron multiplier with Linear-Log Detector for Wider Dynamic Range

52 ISQ GC-MS ExtractaBrite™ Ion Source Eliminates the need for scheduled down time… .. and when the unplanned happens, still requires no down time.

53 Careful: Contents May be HOT Step 1. Insert removal tool Step 2. Remove source Step 3. Hot source is held in tool Step 4. Push source out of tool VIEW: Source Removal Video (Careful: the Contents May be HOT)  30 s  60 s  90 s  120 s

54 • ALL the Advancements of ISQ GC-MS, PLUS: • AutoSRM Method Development • Compound data base with over 1300 pesticide transitions included with TraceFinder EFS Software • Full Scan data match Single Quadrupole data • No venting needed to clean the optics: the ExtractaBrite Ion Source is exchanged via vacuum interlock • Solid probe capability via vacuum interlock • Dual orthogonal filaments for both EI and CI • Source Temperature up to 350 C for improved robustness • S-Shaped Ion Guide for excited neutrals noise reduction • Tuning: User-customizable tuning and tune reporting • Automated preventative maintenance alarms • Simple method transfer from ISQ Single Quadrupole GC-MS to TSQ 8000 GC-MS/MS • Integrated software tools like AutoSRM ease the route to productive analysis regardless of your starting point, whether it be from the very start, a single quad method or an existing MRM method TSQ™ 8000 Triple Quadrupole GC-MS/MS Features
