Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) is a real-time volatile organic compounds (VOC) analyser. It has been used to evaluate a number of applications at the Health and Safety Laboratory in Buxton. The applications included analysis of multicomponent mixtures used for Proficiency Testing, emissions from 3D printers, drug container closure leak testing and the formation of peracetic acid, which can be generated by domestic cleaning products. In all cases, the instrument demonstrated its potential to improve employee safety and working conditions across a diverse range of applications.
