While FID is a standard detector for these analyses, we present some scenarios where MS detection, in particular TOFMS with deconvolution capabilities, offers key benefits to see what you are missing in your fats analysis. The Pegasus BT is well-suited for routine screening applications, such as this analysis for fats in foods. Ref. 203-821-525

We combine GC with TOFMS and achieve comparable chromatographic separations based on AOAC official method 996.06 for the determination of a fatty acid standard and for fatty acids extracted from a variety of butter, margarine, and shortening samples. Distinction of some -cis and -trans fats was accomplished, and the observations were consistent with the reported nutrition label information for each sample. Ref. 203-821-525
