MetaSci’s Library of Standard Mix for GCMS is includes a series of standard mixtures of a collection of organic volatile molecules (VOC) that are mostly sought after for identification and quantification. The unique composition of the library includes terpenes, fatty acids methyl esters (FAMES), fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEtEs), fatty alcohols, underivatized normal chain fatty acids, furans, benzyls and cinnamyl alcohols, n-ketones, n-aldehydes, benzaldehydes, phenols, phenones, aromatic volatiles, lactones, etc. The library is made up of 46 mixes filled and sealed in glass microampules that are compatible with 9-425 autosampler vials. The mixes are designed to have no isobaric interference for maximum confidence in identification, and therefore, each mix typically contains only 8-12 molecules, the retention of which is spread across the chromatogram for the highest resolution. Since there is no two molecules with the same molecular formula in any of the mixes, even a low resolution MS can identify each peak with confidence. The CoA and additional methods for the library is provided through our dedicated online system. The user can also use the QR code on each microampule to access the specification of the mix.


Our library of mixture of standards is provided in patented SnapGo microampules which contains 0.2mL of standards solution. Each mix is provided in three copies, meaning that the user will receive 3 microampule of 600uL for each mix. This allows the user to use the first solution mix, while keeping the other two microampules intact for future and avoiding waste of material after opening the glass ampule. Microampules fit inside 9-425 vials and if your autosampler can accept 9-425 vials (standard 2mL vials) the microampules are compatible with your system. If youare using a plate based autosampler we can provide pplate adapter.


You can use this product for GC-FID. Since FID can not identify the molecules by their mass or structure, you can follow our methods provided in the CoA for idntification of each peak. The mixtures are designed to fullyresolve  on J&W HP-5ms Ultra Inert GC Column, 30 m, 0.25 mm, 0.25 µm column.


A series of C8-C24 alkanes are included in the library to help with system performance check and Retention Index (RI) verification.


The 9-425 autosampler vials are not included with the product. You can use either glass or plastic vials which would work as a support container for microampules.
