Furanes, furanones and lactones make up a large variety of the smells we experience in food and beverage such as fruits, herbs, coffee and brandies.  Many of the furans and similar compounds are used as additives for enhancement of food taste and as artificial flavors. The presence and the amount of certain furans in beer determines its quality and specification. Using mixtures of standards provides the advantage of recording chromatograms and mass spectra of tens to hundreds of compounds in one run, making the analysis and calibration faster. Our Furans Standard Mix is designed to provide the highest resolution chromatogram for GC compatible methods as well as a high purity single peak spectrum for each molecule. All compounds come in 1.0 mM concentration in acetone and can be used for identification and quantification of furans in various type of samples.



  • 40 molecules, high purity, single peak, completely resolved
  • Fully quantitative, 1.0mM in acetone.
  • 4 High recovery sets of five 200 uL microampules. Using microampules allows you to keep the unused amount in the sealed glass container.
  • Contains an internal standard to adjust your retention time with IS lock
  • No isobaric interference means there are no two compounds with the same molecular formula in a microampule. This design allows identification by low resolution single quad mass spectrometer without a need for digital libraries for identification. You can still use high resoltuion or QQQ detector for enhanced identification
