Systematic Software for Microplastics Analysis

Sep 27 2021

The new F-Search MPs allows users to easily identify and quantify unknown microplastics (MPs) in the environment, and it consists of a sophisticated search program and mass spectral libraries of pyrolyzates. The software is used with the data obtained by pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and the analytical process is very easy and straightforward. F-SEARCH MPs is compatible with all major GC/MS systems equipped with a Frontier Lab analytical Pyrolyser.

The creation of calibration curves and quick quantification is done automatically for the registered plastic types using external or internal standards. A reference polymer mixture in inorganic diluents is also included for easy weighing. F-Search MPs automatically performs quantification, and the results are instantly reported for the environmental MPs.

Twelve commonly used polymers are registered in the libraries. The software additionally allows users to establish their own libraries. 

Registered polymers: Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polystyrene, ABS (Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene resin), SBR (styrene-butadiene rubber), PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate), Polycarbonate, Polyvinyl chloride, Polyurethane (MDI type), PET (Polyethylene terephthalate), Nylon-6 and Nylon-66.
