Torion Technologies Inc./IRtech The TRIDION™-9 GC-MS was awarded the Most Innovative Product in 2012 at the Annual Laboratory Technology and Equipment Exhibition ExpoLAB held on October 24-25, 2012 in Sosnowiec, Poland. Receiving the award was Ewa Korbiel, Technical Sales Representative, from IRtech, the Torion Technologies registered distributor in Poland.
The TRIDION™-9 is the world’s fastest and most portable GC-MS. A high speed GC is combined with a miniaturized toroidal ion trap mass spectrometer (TMS) in a lightweight, field-portable instrument that is designed to rapidly detect hazardous chemical compounds in the field at their point of origin. The capillary GC provides rapid, high resolution separation of target analytes, while the TMS supports highly sensitive mass-based detection of a wide variety of compounds. The T-9 weighs 32 lbs (14.5 Kg), is the size of a brief case, operates on battery (rechargeable) power, and has an on-board helium carrier gas cartridge. The GC-TMS is supported by Torion’s CUSTODION™ syringes for sample introduction and the new CHROMION™ operating and data processing software package.
The TRIDION-9 is not only portable, but also fast, reliable and easy to operate. The TRIDION-9 miniature GC-MS system is ideally suited for rapid (less than 3 min), highly sensitive and selective detection of a wide variety of compounds including chemical warfare agents, explosives, environmental pollutants, hazardous substances, food contaminants, etc. The TRIDION-9 GC-TMS decreases sampling costs, increases sampling throughput, and provides time-effective data as compared to conventional sample testing in traditional laboratories.
