Computer programs have been developed for a PDP8/e controlling a Finnigan 1015 quadrupole mass spectrometer to monitor selected ions from components in a gas chromatographic effluent. The program is designed to monitor only a few ions (1 to 8) to enhance the sensitivity for the selected ions. Signal-to-noise levels of 10:1-30:1 have been obtained for 0.2 ng or less of four pesticides employing chemical ionization mass spectrometry and a digital smoothing routine.
