Developed in the 1950s, gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) combines the qualities of gas-liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry to detect substances within a single test sample.
GC/MS has been hailed as a ‘gold standard’ for substance detection as the technology is able to perform a specific test, rather than a non-specific test (i.e. it positively identifies the particular substance, and not just the category the substance belongs to).
Agilent 7980B GC & 5977A Series GC/MSD
This industry-proven Mass Spectrometry Detector (MSD) is the one of the most celebrated MSDs. The 5977A MSD includes a highly sensitive Extractor Ion Source for higher Signal-to-Noise (SNR) and a statistically based, low-femtogram Instrument Detection Limit (IDL).
In combination, the 7890B/5977A GC/MSD has the following benefits:
- Increased sample throughput
- Wider range of analytical capabilities
- Less maintenance required
- Reduced cost for energy and gases
Agilent 6890 GC
The Agilent 6890 is considered to be one of the best GCs today, producing excellent results for various applications. This model has on-board sensors that make up for temperature and pressure differences, thereby producing extremely reliable results with minimal errors.
Agilent 5975 MSD
This MSD features swift calculations, easy-to-operate functions, a wide range of applications and low cost maintenance. Such qualities help our operators increase productivity and provide better results (i.e. low mass deviation, higher MS resolution, superior sensitivity, improved spectral integrity).
