*All tests use helium as carrier gas. EI MRM sensitivity test will be used as installation checkout specifications; not all other performance tests are confirmed at installation. † The Signal-to-Noise ratio S/N values are based on RMS
IDL**: Instrument Detection Limit, defined as IDL=t(0.99, f=7)×S, whereas t(0.99, f=7) is the one-sided student’s t-distribution value of 2.998 for 99% of confidence and for degree of freedom 7 (f=n-1, n the number of injections); S is the peak area standard deviation of 8 replicate injections. ‡ CI tests use methane as reagent gas
