The Dioxin Analyzer includes the Thermo Scientific™ TSQ™ 9000 Triple Quadrupole GC-MS/MS System, consumables, system suitability check standard solutions, e-workflow with acquisition method, data processing software, isotope dilution calculation, and reporting methods in compliance with EU regulations. Comprehensive user guidelines for fast implementation and enablement of optimum performance are also included.

The Dioxin Analyzer offers the following benefits:

  • Sensitive determination of trace levels of dioxins and dI-PCBs in complex sample matrices facilitated by the new Thermo Scientific Advanced Electron Ionization source, which permits the use of lower sample weights to reduce both the cost of sample preparation and system maintenance.
  • Compliance with EU requirements for Dioxins and dl-PCBs in food & feed samples.
  • Robustness over a large variety of sample types and extended uptime, for consistent results.
  • Productive data processing and reporting via a comprehensive suite of software tools and pre-loaded acquisition, calculation, and reporting templates designed to meet European Union requirements for dioxin and dl-PCBs confirmation.
  • Operational simplicity, with setup guidance documentation and a quality check standard that facilitate out-of-box implementation and reduced training needs.

The TraceGOLD™ TG-Dioxin GC Columns (60m × 0.25mm, 0.25µm) enable isomer specificity for 2,3,7,8-TCDD and 2,3,7,8-TCDF. The columns feature the following benefits:

  • Unique selectivity for the toxic dioxin and furan congeners.
  • Excellent separation of mono-ortho/di-ortho PCBs.
  • Peak to peak separation between 1,2,3,4,7,8-HxCDF and 1,2,3,6,7,8-HxCDF isomers < 25%.
