F-Search MPs 2.1


Analytical software for microplastics analysis

F-Search MPs 2.1 allows users to easily identify and quantify unknown microplastics (MPs) in the environment. It consists of a sophisticated search program with mass spectral libraries of pyrolyzates. The software is used with the data obtained by pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass
Spectrometry. The analytical procedures are very easy and straightforward.

  • Features

  • Specifications

1. Quick identification of polymer types for unknown MPs
It enables identification of polymers accurately based on pyrolyzates information.

2. Automatic creation of calibration curves and quick quantification

It enables creation of calibration curves for the registered polymers (ISTD or ESTD) automatically based on the analytical results from the reference polymer mixture. Then, F-Search MPs 2.1 automatically performs quantification with the results instantly reported for the environmental MPs.

3. Library of twelve commonly used polymers
It enables the analysis of twelve commonly used polymers (e.g. polyethylene, polypropylene).

4. Easy integration of user’s own library to F-Search MPs
Additionally, the user can create their own libraries depending on their interests.

Registered polymers (12 polymers)
Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Polystyrene (PS), Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene resin (ABS), Styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) , Polycarbonate (PC), Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), Polyurethane (PU: MDI type), Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Nylon-6 (N6), Nylon-6,6 (N66)

Compatible (major GC/MS)
GC/MS systems from major manufacturers can be used. The available software are MS data of Agilent (MassHunter, ChemStation), Shimadzu (GCMSsolution, LabSolutions), and JEOL (Novaspec, Escrime). Thermo, Varian, PerkinElmer, and LECO require conversion to AIA format.
