GC-MS Gas Chromatography – Mass spectrometry

 

Since 2004: The GIBNIK first generation of mass spectrometers, the KONIK MS Q12, featured a revolutionary design, providing the power of three mass spectrometers in a single platform. These were achieved with fast and easy interchangeable ionisation sources for EI/CI/+/-, ESI/APCI/+/- and DIP/DEP/EI/CI/+/- . The compromise of multi-source flexibility inherently limited some other parameters such as detection limits in some modes.

 The new KONIK GC-MS Q2 is being focussed to achieve, rather than flexibility, utmost sensitivity, resolution, robustness, reliability, with high scanning speed and sample throughput.

GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY

MASS SPECTROMETRY

After more than 10 years representing VG, The GIBNIK Technical Team, in cooperation with former French Riber and Nermag specialist, developed an innovative MS that has set the bases o a new generation of KONIK high sensitive EI/CI MSs. The new Q2 is designed for smaller foot print and less bench space, optimum performance, robustness, easy of use and overall lowest costs. Can be upgraded to HPLC+GC-MS.

KONIK GC-MS Q2

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

SAMPLE INTRODUCTION OPTIONS

GC, DIP/DEP, RoboKrom, and unique HPLC+GC upgrade and On-Line derivfatization options

  • The KONIK GC 5000C: An outstanding front end inlet for optimum GC-MS results. The KONIK GC 5000C gas chromatograph has been purposely designed for MS Coupling on the left hand side, and for HPLC coupling on the other right hand side, from front view, for easy upgrade anytime to the innovative Multidimensional HPLC+ GC or HPLC+GC-MS patented options.  On top of the unique temperature and pressure control accuracies (0.1 ºC oven stability displayed in real time and 0.001 psi pressure accuracy) the KONIK GC 5000C includes a tight injector (no septum purge) that prevents back streaming of moisture and oxygen to the system, thus enhancing ionization efficiency, while protecting sample integrity, inhibiting volatile loss and facilitating the heavy molecular weight compounds transmission to the column head.
  • DIP/DEP probe: Expands the range of applications to high molecular weight compounds. A dedicated fast exchangeable ionisation source allows both solid and liquid samples to be analysed directly without chromatography. This technique allows the analysis of pure sugars, amino acids, polymers, pharmaceuticals, proteins and high molecular weight compounds that cannot pass through a capillary column. The KONIK DIP/DEP ionisation source combines both EI and CI for positive and negative ions. The spectra of the samples are obtained by placing a small quantity of pure sample inside a crucible onto the probe.
  • The KONIK RoboKrom Multimodal Autosampler for AS, HS, P&T and/o SPmE. The KONIK Robokrom ™ Multimode Autosampler meets the most demanding requirements of accuracy, precision and performance. It can be easily configured in seven working modes: GC liquid sampler, HPLC liquid sampler, Head Space, Purge & Trap, Solid Phase Micro Extraction, Thermal Desorption and Fraction Collector. With unmatched flexibility and performance is offered in two versions an XY, two axes system, and a three axes X,Y,Z with optimized trays for the widest volume ranges and variety of vials in dependence of the application (please enquire).
  • KONIK Multidimensional HPLC+GC Coupling Interface: The innovative patented KONIK HPLC+GC COUPLING interface marries in synergy the separation and fractionation potential of LC and HPLC to the separation, selective detection, quantization and identification of GC and GC/MS, while opening new dimensions and pushing forward borders only limited by your imagination. 
  • KONIK On-Line Derivatizer®. This patented on-line derivatisation system, the KONIK Derivatizer®, allows that non-volatile compounds trapped into the HPLC+GC interface are rendered volatile by using the chosen derivatization reagents in order to enhance, at will, selectivity and lowering detection limits. Higher mass, non-volatiles, polifunctional molecules can be handled with this On Line-Derivatization option.
IONIZATION MODES +/- EI/CI

A dual, inert, EI and CI ion source for both positive and negative ions. Chemical Ionization (+/-) is optional for ideal lowest detection limits of a wide range of high electronegative compounds, with selection of up to two reagent gases. The unique design of the ion source provides extremely fast exchange. 

The ultra-high efficiency Electron Impact (EI) and Chemical Ionization (CI) ion source design features a removable ionisation chamber, source exit lenses and long-life emission filaments for fast and easy maintenance and replacement. Inert materials used in the ion source ensure better ionisation efficiency and long term day-to-day reproducibility.

The user can choose between dedicated ion sources (for EI or for CI) for ultimate sensitivity or the new dual inlet source for both EI and CI without component replacement

HIGH PERFORMANCE QUADRUPOLE ANALYZER

The research-grade quadrupole analyser that is fitted into the KONIK GC-MS Q2 is a 220 mm long, with mass ranges of 1 to 1.200 amu optimised for high sensitivity GC/MS. Auto tuning automatically adjusts the resolution at 0.5-0.7amu at half height, making unit mass resolution over the entire quadrupole mass range.

With manual tuning Resolution can be adjusted up to 2.5M. Plug-in RF-only pre-filters enhance high mass transmission and prevent direct contamination of the quadrupole analyzer by filtering high masses.

The pre-filters can be easily removed, for cleaning, leaving the quadrupole totally maintenance free ensuring more stable and higher sensitivity with lower background noise.

ULTRA HIGH SENSIVITY DETECTION

The KONIK GC-MS Q2 ion detector is based in a ±10 kV off-axis post acceleration high energy conversion dynodes and a long-life gas-sealed electron multiplier that ensures years of reproducible analysis and reduces the operational cost to the minimum. The detector design ensures comfortable routine work and stable quantization at high mass.

The Focus-Out electrostatic lens focuses the ions exiting the quadrupole and injects them to the HED. Neutral particles are deflected by optimized ion optics thus preventing them reaching the high sensitivity electron multiplier detector, thus improving absolute detection limits by optimal S/N ratio.

POWERFUL VACUUM SYSTEM

Reliable, erosion resistant turbo pumps options (250 lt/sec standard) increases the pump life-time reducing drastically the system down-time and operational cost. Large bore flanges for higher throughput and higher conductance increases the pumping efficiency.

The pumping down time is extremely low, less than 5 minutes from atmospheric to operational vacuum. The high pumping capacity increases the system applications to wide bore 0.53 mm ID columns with unlimited choice of stationary phases, allowing high flows in EI mode amenable to wide bore and PLOT columns. Computer-controlled electro-valves and gauges provide automatic vacuum operation by a simple click of a mouse.
All the heaters and high voltages are automatically switched-off in case of a leak. The venting valve can be attached to an inert gas supply to purge the complete system, avoiding Oxygen, moisture and water vapour contamination.

AUTOTUNING AND CONTROL ELECTRONICS

The flexibility of the KONIK GC-MS Q2 is unmatched by any other bench top MS in the market. Tuning of the spectrometer and mass calibration are easily performed from a dedicated menu. All the mass calibration and tuning parameters are automatically saved in the method.

One may have as many method files as you wish, depending on the working mode, resolution and sensitivity requirements. A particular method file can be uploaded at any time. You can choose Autotune to ensure day-to-day reproducibility for routine analysis or manual tuning.

Manual tuning facilitates optimizing key parameters to achieve the higher levels of sensitivity required by certain methods and specific analysis. Optimized full scanning is used for identifying unknown compounds while selected/single ion monitoring (SIM) operation allows detection of specific analytes with increased sensitivity relative to full scan mode.

Simultaneous Scan and SIM operation in the same run can also be performed. Ultra fast Scanning Speed (20.000 amu/sec) with high technology firmware is ideal for use of high resolution GC peaks, fast eluting peaks, with narrow-bore capillary columns for faster analysis and lower detection limits. The KONIK GC-MS Q2 build in TCP/IP communication protocol makes instrument fully remote control from the Internet. This includes not only data processing, data transfer and data export/import but also total instrument control, servicing, diagnostics, software and firmware updates, tuning and mass calibration, inter-lab methods sharing, etc. from any place in the world.

KONIKROM MS PLUS DATA SYSTEM

KONIKROM MS software offers easy control of the GC/MS and supports the NIST mass spectral library, automatically identifying and naming eluted compounds. The software allows the MS to be run on Scan mode and SIM mode simultaneously in one chromatographic analysis.

The KONIKROM MS software supports automatic and manual tune for enhanced sensitivity, stability and reproducibility of MS data with intuitive menus. Data acquisition, qualitative analysis, quantitation and reporting are performed easily through interactive and dedicated applications. SIM and Full Scan spectra can be simultaneously acquired during the same run, providing more data and information in a shorter time. Three acquisition modes and several pre and post acquisition options expand the KONIK MS Q2 flexibility

PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS

The KONIK Q2 GC-MS is one of the most, not to say the most, sensitive MSD of its class as can Detect less than 10 femtograms (1×10-16) g in Single Ion Recording mode (SIR) upon injection of 100 fg of the standard OFN. A S/N ratio higher than 1.500:1 is obtained upon injection of 1 pg of OFN in scanning mode (50-300amu), thus providing unmatched sensitivity for trace level analysis of target analytes. In addition GIBNIK offers:

• Better qualitative results and high selectivity as we have to our advantage the HPLC selectivity added to the GC and SIM MS,
• Lower detection limits thanks to the enrichment stage by trapping of volatile compounds like in P&T methods, in the HPLC+GC trapping interface

KONIK HPLC 580

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

PUMP AND FLOW DELIVERY

The 580 pump is a multipurpose, multifunctional pump available with three pump heads optimised for: Analytical HPLC with flow range from 0,01 to 10 ml, and Semi preparative, with flow range up to 50 ml and Preparative HPLC with flow ranges from 1 to 100 cc/min upon exchange of pump head.

Can work as: Isocratic, Four solvents gradient with low pressure mixing concept, and/or High pressure binary gradient formation. With flow rate ranging from 0.01 to 10.00 ml/min. and a pressure limit of 40 MPa (400 Bar/5.800psi) this pump is suited for most analytical applications in liquid chromatography. Particularly optimised for Multidimensional HPLC+GC-MS options.

It is designed following the KONIK HPLC 500 Isokinetic Flow Delivery principle we pioneered in 1985. This implies the use of dual pistons working in series to minimize pulsation with an improved pulsation dampening algorithm, while improving solvent mixing in the gradient forming process.

The KONIK HPLC 580 Pump facilitates highly reproducible and accurate gradient forming by mixing at low pressure the chosen solvents prior to introducing the mixture in the pump head. This is done by the use of very fast, microelectrosolenoid valves under computer control. User selects the solvents and defines the desired gradient and built in algorithm does the rest (see the KONIK 580 Solvent Manager). The 580 pump can also be used in isocratic runs by choosing any of the 4 solvents and or producing constant mix of any of the four in any chosen proportions. Mechanically the pump offers utmost reliability and robustness, along with accurate and reproducible flows. Easy exchange of pistons, seals and check.

When using certain chemically aggressive mobile phases, such as buffered solutions, it is important to be able to rinse, wash and/or flush pistons and seals to properly protect them. A piston/seal backwash option is offered for the KONIK 580HPLC Pump.

SOLVENT ORGANIZER, GRADIENT FORMATION AND DEGASSER

This module is used with the KONIK 580 Pump for gradient formation of up to 4 solvents mixed at low pressure. It is made up of four way microsolenoid valves controlled by the KONIK 580 Pump. The 580 SOLVENT MANAGER includes a highly effective, fast response and low internal volume, 4 channel solvent degasser with advanced gas permeation membrane technology. Solvent degassing is important to prevent bubble formation upon low pressure solvent mixing and it is much more economical than He degassing as we used in older model 500. The Solvent Manager tray fits up to 6 solvent bottles. An additional solvent selection valve can be optionally fitted.
  
Accurate gradient formation is a very important feature when the HPLC is coupled to the GC for Multidimensional HPLC+GC or HPLC+GC-MS. In fact the HPLC fraction or fractions are introduced into the patented HPLC+GC interface by switching a valve located at the column outlet. This is done on a time bases in relation to retention volumes of the particular method and gradient chosen. Accuracy and reproducibility of the gradient formed is key to integrity of the fraction(s) introduced and hence reproducibility and reliability of results.

COLUMN OVEN

Retention volumes (retention time of the analytes) reproducibility is enhanced by temperature control of the columns. Also, as Partition Coefficients between mobile and stationary phases are a function of temperatur, hence temperature control in addtition to facilitate retention times reproducibility allows you to optimize separation while shortening total analysis time.

The KONIK 580 Column Oven has a temperature range of +5ºC to 99 ºC with an accuracy of +/-0,2ºC and fits up to 3 columns of up to 25 cm length. It is controlled by the KONIKROM Data System computer (via RS232 or Eternet) or by its own keypad. For intrinsic safety it is fitted with a leak detection alarm

DETECTOR OPTIONS

KONIK HPLC UV-Vis 580: The 580 UV-Vis covers the range 190 to 800 nm continuously with spectral band width of 6nm. Has high sensitivity and low noise of ± 3•10-6 AU and drift. Several detector flow cells are available, easily interchangeable, for analytical, semi-preparative or flash chromatography. The 580 UV-Vis is controlled by the KONIKROM Data System.

The 580 UV-Vis is fitted with one high intensity long life Deuterium discharge lamp for the UV range and Tungsten lamps for the visible region. Two, Reference and Sample, measuring channels allow easy detector diagnostics as well as registration of operational hours. Wavelength Calibration to +/- 1 nm is automatically performed every time the lamp is switched on. Digital andanalogue outputs are included.

KONIK HPLC DAD 580: The 580 UV-Vis Diode Array Detector is designed to facilitate full spectrum (190 to 840 nm) or simultaneous four wavelength measurements. Control of peak purity is performed by an optional KONIKROM module. Lamp life control, calibration, etc is similar to the 580 UV-Vis.

KONIK 580 RI: Is used for detection of null or low UV absorption compounds such as sugars, polymers, … in isocratic runs. It is rather universal but sensitivity is somewhat limited compared to other detectors. The 580 RI has low drift, noise, accurate flow control and fast equilibration times for optimal performance.

KONIK 580 FL: More than 80% of organic compounds are fluorescent when excited with the proper wavelength. Fluorescence might encompass high sensitivity with selectivity. The 580 FL offers a wide range of excitation and emission, from 200 to 700 nm (900 nm optionally), and signal to noise ratio better than 350:1. It includes a rapid scan feature, of both excitation and emission, quite suitable for method optimization.

KONIK HPLC ELSD 580 Evaporative light scattering is an interesting universal detector that complements RI detection when gradient elution is necessary. It is particularly suitable for non-volatile substances soluble in normal HPLC solvents. A series of six nebulizers are available to optimise different applications.

KONIK Q4 HPLC-MS: This is by far the detector of choice in HPLC as offers the best of all worlds: selectivity, low detection limits, unequivocal total mass spectrum information … The main handicap has been its high cost compared to the other as well as its technical complexity. The new KONIK Q4 offers mass range to 2000, hence suitable for proteomics (trypsin digest) and all main ionization modes ESI/APCI/APPC.

CONDUCTIVITY AND ELECTROCONDUCTIVITY DETECTORS are described in the new GIBNIK ION CHROMATOGRAPHY brochure describing the new KONIK 590 IC Plus for Anion, Cation, and Organic Ion Analysis.

INJECTION AND AUTOSAMPLER OPTIONS

Standard Rheodyne Valve 7725 I for manual injection and the KONIK ROBOKROM AS HPLC that is the optimised Multimode-Multifunction Auto Sampler for HPLC applications. The X-Y-Z version offers 3 tray options of 32 vials of 6, 10 or 20 ml, 105 vials of 2ml, or 171 vials of 1ml.

Multidimensional HPLC+GC-MS is a new technology that complements advantageously and eventually replaces other, particularly MS-MS, in determination of organics in complex matrix

THE GIBNIK HPLC+GC COUPLING INTERFACE

At the heart of the systems is the patented HPLC+GC coupling interface depicted below:  This original enrichment interface, covered by several international patents, allows the selective elimination of the HPLC solvents, both apolar and polar, used in all types of chromatography and specifically in reversed phase HPLC where other earlier attempts for this HPLC+GC coupling have failed.
The analytes of interest are trapped in proven and reliable quantitative absorbing-desorbing materials such as proprietary treated TENAX ® and the like in accordance to the application. While this trapping process is performed the HPLC solvents are selectively eliminated by the patented fluid dynamics of the interfaced.

 IC ION CHROMATOGRAPHY

 

The team behind the GIBNIK-KONIK instrument development programme has been active in Chromatography since 1978 when the KONIK 2000 A GC, purposely designed for capillary chromatography, was introduced. In 1985 the same team developed the first low pressure mixing, gradient forming HPLC that among other options could perform, with the limitations at the time, ion analysis. In 1997 developed the first multimodal robotics and autosamplers for GC (HS, P&T, SPmE;…) and HPLC, in 2002 the first multimodal Quadrupole MS with exchangeable sources optimized for EI/CI GC-MS and ESI/APCI HPLC-MS.

Recently, after  expiration of key patents in suppression technology, and GIBNIK’s  long time positive experience in the use of of inert thermoplastic materials such as Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK), facilitated GIBNIK to enter the ion chromatography selected group of manufacturers. PEEK has excellent mechanical properties and chemical inertness, that GIBNIK uses for a long time in other designs of their current product programme that includes GCs, HPLCs, and MS. We developed thie new KONIK IC590 Plus with confidence, likewise we did with the other instruments to date, adding value to the “IC turnkey solution packages” that we are currently offering and those that we will continue to develop in the near future.

ION CROMATOGRAPHY

With the new KONIK IC 590 Plus GIBNIK has introduced a high sensitivity anion and cation analyzer with innovative suppression technology. All KONIK ICs are delivered as “turnkey systems”, as an integral customized package all included, for the group of ions of interest in the chosen matrix.

Konik Electrochemical Supressor

KONIK IC 590 Plus

SUMMARY OF FEATURES

In fact there are a few technologies integrated in modern IC,s that GIBNIK did care to optimize at every level based on their life long experience of near 40 years of designing and manufacturing advanced analytical equipment. Among these technologies the pump and fluidic parts play a key role, the multiple types of available columns and column oven compartment too, the conductivity, electrochemical, and photometric detectors, as well as the optional suppression technologies, all play significant roles in Ion Chromatography.In the KONIK IC 590 Plus we have integrated what matters most under a user’s point of view:

  • PERFORMANCE, ROBUSTNESS AND RELIABILITY: Derived from strict quality controls in place
  • FLEXIBILITY, MODULARITY AND EASY OF USE: Streaming from the innovative designs made
  • SENSITIVITY AND LOW DETECTION LIMITS: Result of the proprietary technologies developed
  • WARRANTY AND GUARANTEE OF SATISFACTION: Based on our unique “Turnkey-Zero Risk” policy, including training of end users in Barcelona prior delivery of the systems and commissioning by factory qualified engineers.

It is easy to operate; light intensities for reference and sample channels are available for detector diagnostics as well as information on lamp operating hours. The detector performs automatic wavelength calibration after the lamp has been switched on. High standard deuterium lamp in a special socket enables easy exchange. Output signal is available in both digital and analogue form. Detector could be controlled, programmed and used together with KONIKROM PLUS software via RS232 or Ethernet interface. The cell can be easily removed from the front of the unit. All fluidic parts are PEEK for maximum chemical inertness.

KONIK IC ELECTROCHEMICAL DETECTOR

With a low dead volum the cell maintains the efficiency of the separation, while the mirror polished cell avoids hydrodynamic disturbances. Low noise elec tronics provides sensitive and selecti – ve detection in the picogram range. The electronic transfer between electrode and compound in solution occurs only if the working potential is held at the right value to oxidize or reduce the compound ; the detector is blind when the compounds react above this value. The digital display shows all important parameters for efficient interpretation : volt or nA / V, output data, volt or nA / V, offset, potential, time constant, base line decay, sensivity, chromatogram, etc.
