With the addition of these new products, Agilent offers the industry’s
broadest, most feature-rich portfolio of GC, GC/MS and software
available today. Agilent also offers factory-tested, preconfigured
solutions to help fast track setup and operation.
“Our customers can be confident that continuing investments in
productivity, quality and reliability have always been and continue to
be top priorities for Agilent,” said Monty Benefiel, Agilent vice
president for Gas Phase Systems. “Customers will find significant
product improvements, eco-friendly capabilities and lower cost of
ownership, along with unsurpassed performance. This is what our
customers expect from Agilent, and we delivered.”
The Agilent 7890B GC
Based on the industry-leading Agilent GC platform, the 7890B GC is
faster, easier to operate and more cost-effective. One key feature isn’t
new – Agilent’s unsurpassed GC reliability, built over decades and more
than 250,000 installations. The 7890B GC offers:
Improved performance specifications with advances in numerous detector
Lower operating costs and eco-friendly operation with power/gas
management and sleep/wake modes.
Seamless ordering of consumables and parts with an interactive
graphical Parts Finder tool and consumables database.
Easier, faster method development with integrated GC calculators and
Better asset and resource management with integrated maintenance tools.
Improved recovery of active compounds with Agilent’s exclusive
end-to-end Inert Flow Path deactivation technology.
Reduced downtime for MS maintenance using the new Fast Vent feature.
The Agilent 7890B GC runs on Agilent OpenLAB Chromatography Data System
software. The new release of Agilent OpenLAB CDS is up to 40 times
faster than previous versions, with a new Data Analysis package and
Intelligent Reporting. Advanced interactive integration tools and
graphical displays accelerate data review, reducing time-to-results and
freeing up operators for other tasks.
“Our customers require the means to efficiently and accurately analyze
their data as well as information about their laboratory assets to
support decision making or gain further scientific insight. OpenLAB does
all of that,” said Bruce von Herrmann, Agilent vice president for
Software and Informatics. “With streamlined workflows and complete data
and method migration from ChemStation and EZChrom, OpenLAB is a fully
scalable solution for a single laboratory, multiple workgroups, and
The Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD
The Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD enjoys all the benefits of the 7890B GC
and features a redesigned inert MS ion source that enhances performance
with highly efficient ion collection. The Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD
now offers the highest sensitivity on the market, with a new
specification metric, the Instrument Detection Limit, guaranteeing true
system-level performance in practice. Using Agilent’s TwisTorr 304 FS
turbomolecular pump, optimized for light gas operation, the new 5977A
GC/MSD system is efficient and rugged, and has been evaluated and
certified to meet industry-leading Agilent quality standards.
The Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD runs on Agilent MassHunter Workstation
software. Ideally suited for high-productivity GC/MS, MassHunter
provides intuitive, powerful instrument control, coupled with automated
data acquisition as well as qualitative and quantitative data analysis
and reporting. It is the industry-leading software solution for
high-throughput MS data analysis. MassHunter for MSD systems also
includes a full version of MSD ChemStation to ensure compatibility with
previously purchased instruments.
Agilent Inert Flow Path Solutions
For GC/MS customers in the food, environmental and forensic industries
who perform trace-level analysis on active compounds, Agilent
Inert Flow Path solutions ensure a reliably inert flow path for
higher sensitivity, accuracy and reproducibility. Agilent’s exclusive
deactivation solutions enable customers to perform trace-level analysis
with the utmost confidence because each lot of Agilent Inert Flow Path
components are qualified using chromatographic QC tests to provide
reliable, consistent inertness that spans the entire flow path. More
