In this particular experiment, the sensitivity of a Hiden Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer (QMS) to dimethylsulphide was measured

Dimethylsulphide (DMS) - chemical formula CH3SCH3- is a naturally produced trace substance, evolved from certain marine micro organisms, such as plankton. Detection of fluctuations in the DMS concentration in seawater therefore gives important information about the abundance of these life forms. DMS is a simple chemical. It is volatile and dissolveseasily in aqueous solution.
