Syft Technologies are the world leading providers of SIFT-MS solutions, which are revolutionizing the trace analysis world. 

This groundbreaking technique emerged out of investigations of ion chemistry in the Earth’s atmosphere, and other planetary atmospheres, and was developed further at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. In 2002, Syft Technologies was formed, providing sufficient funding to take this academic research into a fully developed commercial solution.

Now Syft instruments are sold throughout the world, in a wide range of applications as diverse as mud logging, to cutting-edge breath research. In all applications the unique attributes of Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) have enabled customers to measure significantly more than they thought was possible, resulting in a greater understanding of their products.


Selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry is a form of direct mass spectrometry that analyses volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and permanent gases in air, with typical detection limits at parts-per-trillion levels (by volume: pptV). Real-time, quantitative analysis is achieved by applying precisely controlled ultra-soft chemical ionization (USCI), coupled with mass spectrometric detection. With direct SIFT-MS, the need for sample preparation, pre-concentration and chromatography is eliminated.
