Speed matters

Speed matters

Torion Technologies introduces the world’s lightest, fastest and most portable capillary gas chromatograph-toroidal ion trap mass spectrometer (GC-TMS). Weighing in at 14.5kg and a size of 38.1 cm x 39.4 cm x 22.9 cm makes their motto ring true: “When we say portable we mean portable”

Torion’s person portable GC -TMS integrates a high speed low thermal mass (LTM) capillary gas chromatograph (GC) with a miniaturized toroidal ion trap mass spectrometer (TMS) that has been engineered to provide a fast, reliable, and easy – to-operate GC -MS. Sample injection has been simplified using a novel CUSTODION™ solid phase micro extraction (SPME) fibre syringe, which allows users to collect and concentrate analytes quickly without the need for other extraction equipment or solvents. The TRIDION -9 GC-TMS is ideal for rapid screening of chemicals such as environmental volatiles and semi volatiles (VOCs/SVOCs), explosives, chemical warfare agents, hazardous substances, and for use in food safety and industrial applications.


 Rechargeable battery operated

 Small diameter LTM capillary GC provides high speed, high resolution separation of chemical analytes.

 Rapid temperature programming delivers analysis times of less than 3 minutes.

 A toroidal ion trap mass analyzer provides sensitive and selective mass -based detection of a wide range of chemicals.

 Easy to operate with a colour touch-screen display and simple navigation buttons.

 Torion’s Automated Advanced TMS Functions: On-board automated functions, based on novel advanced algorithms, operate the TRIDION-9 at ideal settings at all times.

 AutoTune: Automatically optimizes filament emission, signal resolution and EM detector optimization.

 AutoCal: Automatic calibration of Mass and GC retention scales.

 AutoIon: Automatic adjustments of ionization time based on the concentration of analyte(s) in the TMS which leads to improved and consistent mass resolution and sensitivity.

 CHROMION™ automated compound libraries identifies target compounds, allows users to build custom target compound libraries, and is used in conjunction with an extensive NIST Library database.

 The calibration of this portable GC has never been easier. The combination of CUSTODION SPME sampling with CALION standards provides robust and rapid capability for in-field calibration .CALION mixes contain standard compounds that are carried in solidified liquid particles, where the compounds maintain equilibrium between the solid particles and the vial’s headspace.


The powerful combination of the person-portable TRIDION-9 GC -TMS and the CUSTODION SPME Syringe provides users with the capability to collect and analyze a sample at any location. Identification of target chemical compounds is straight -forward, accurate and rapid. Torion’s TRIDION – 9 system is ideally designed for a variety of applications.
