Application Note: Reducing the helium consumption for analysis of VOCs in accordance with EPA Method 8260D without compromising performance using HeSaver-H2 Safer technology
15 March 2024

In this application note, Thermo Fisher Scientific discusses the significance of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The method of choice for analyzing VOCs involves gas chromatography coupled with single quadrupole mass spectrometry using Purge and Trap (P&T) sampling. The HeSaver-H2Safer™ technology offers a solution by significantly reducing helium consumption without compromising performance. The application of this technology in conjunction with gas chromatography and mass spectrometry for the analysis of water and soil samples according to EPA Method 8260D is detailed. The results demonstrate that the HeSaver-H2Safer™ technology allows for minimal method transfer effort while maintaining chromatographic performance across different matrices.
