In recent years, instruments on the basis of multi-sensors combined with multivariate analysis have moved from R&D level to the production floor. Commonly known as “Electronic Noses”, these devices are now being used in the food and the pharmaceutical industry, cosmetics etc. for quality control. However they are insufficient to cover the areas for Environment, Safety and Health (ESH) like Sick-building syndrome and Soil pollution that cause crucial problems for human beings because of poor quantitatively. A portable mass spectrometer with membrane inlet has been developed and investigated its suitability as an electronic nose. This paper also discusses the potentiality to apply it for ESH industry with showing some preliminary results.
