Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS, GCMS or GC/MS) is an analytical method that is used to determine the composition of substances within a test sample. As the name describes, the system is composed of a gas chromatograph to separate the substances (analytes) and a mass spectrometer to identify these analytes. This is the gold standard for analysis in many fields such as forensics or petrochemical studies as GC-MS allows for the unequivocal identification of substances.
