Ethylene Oxide GC MS Analysis

Applied Technical Services’ chemical analysis provides ethylene oxide GC MS analysis. Ethylene oxide analysis can evaluate the presence of ethylene oxide to ensure that the gas’s presence doesn’t exceed the ever-evolving restrictions enacted by government agencies. Our testing services help manufacturers abide by relevant regulations, reducing the potential risks of excessive exposure to ethylene oxide.

What is Ethylene Oxide?

Ethylene oxide is a colorless and flammable gaseous disinfectant commonly used to produce other chemicals. The compound is a precursor to several products such as glycols, ethers, and plastics and is a disinfectant in medical environments. Several other industries use ethylene oxide, including automotive, construction, and oil and gas.

Ethylene oxide is carcinogenic, and humans encounter it through inhalation, ingestion, or contact with eyes or skin. Excessive exposure to ethylene is associated with several health risks, including:

Gas Chromatography:

Gas chromatography separates a sample’s chemical components, such as gases or molecules, to verify their presence and concentration.

Mass Spectrometry:

Mass spectrometry measures the mass-to-charge ratio of a sample’s molecules, allowing experts to identify unknown compounds present in a sample.

Together, gas chromatography and mass spectrometry identify various substances within a sample. The analysis results provide information on the presence and concentration of harmful compounds such as ethylene oxide.
