GCMS combines two separate techniques: gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. GC is used to separate several analytes mixed in a single sample. MS will provide information not only on identity of each analyte by comparing to a mass spectrometry database, but also its quantity with regard to a calibration curve of standards.

Benefits of the GCMS

The technique has a very broad spectrum of applications ranging from fatty acids, essential oils, drug, perfume, forensic and environmental sciences.
