Application Note: A Simple Sampling Technique for the TD–GC–MS Analysis of VOCs Released from Packaged Meat
13 July 2017

This application note describes the use of an easy-to-use grabsampler for the rapid collection of volatile compounds in the headspace surrounding packaged meat. Analytes are collected directly onto sorbent tubes for analysis by thermal desorption (TD)–GC–MS. This approach offers particular advantages in terms of sensitivity enhancement and water management.
