Application Note: Monitoring Volatile Organic Compounds in Beer Production Using the Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS and TurboMatrix Headspace Trap Systems
14 October 2011

This application note describes a system comprising a headspace trap sampler to extract and concentrate VOCs from a beer sample and deliver them to a gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MS) for separation, identification and quantification. The purpose of this is to demonstrate that attributes and defects can all be monitored using one detector and from a single injection with mass spectrometry.
