Application Note: Simultaneous GC-MS and FID analysis of blood alcohol content utilizing robotic autosampler for automated sample preparation
8 January 2021

In this application note, Shimadzu explains how using a GC-MS paired with a flame ionization detector (FID) for simultaneous data collection for blood alcohol content (BAC) analysis provides highly repeatable compound identification and ethanol quantification. This application note demonstrates how using a robotic sampler for sample preparation eliminates the need for analyst sample creation while maintaining a high level of accuracy and repeatability across a broad linear range.
