Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched its new Chemical Optima and GC Resolv methylene chloride products for customers in the pharmaceutical, environmental, food and chemical industries. Methylene chloride is used as an extraction solvent for identifying and quantifying trace amounts of volatile organic compounds with gas chromatography (GC).

Thermo Fisher has developed these new methylene chloride solvents to deliver an interference-free baseline in chromatograms for better detection of trace levels of target analytes. This is particularly important for environmental testing of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, as well as pesticides in food, water and soil samples.

‘Instrumentation advances are leading to lower analyte detection limits,’ said Stephen Roemer, global director, R&D, Fisher Chemical, at Thermo Fisher Scientific. ‘With our new Optima and GC Resolv solutions, we implemented a quality by design approach to manufacture ultrapure methylene chloride in order to provide researchers with an extraction solvent that consistently shows an interference-free baseline during GC analysis.’

The new solvents work well with many Thermo Scientific instruments, including the Thermo Scientific TRACE 1310 Gas Chromatograph with Thermo Scientific TSQ Quantum Ultra triple quadrupole mass spectrometer.
