Rapid and Direct Screening for Vitamin E Acetate in E-Cigarette Juices by ASAP/CMS

The recent out break of sever lung injury is allegedly tied to the presence of Vitamin E Acetate (VEA) in vaping-related products after VEA was found in lung fluid samples of patients with vaping-related lung illness (EVALI). Calling for regulatory control, Washington, Colorado and Ohio have already banned the use of VEA in e-juices at the state level.

The Advion expression Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS) with the Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP) provides a highly sensitive screening method for the presence of VEA.
