Product News: Agilent’s New 7890B Gas Chromatograph and 5977A Series Mass Selective Detector Deliver New Levels of Productivity, Sensitivity and Reliability

14 Feb 2013

Now, with the unsurpassed performance of the new Agilent 7890B GC and Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD, Agilent offers the industry's broadest, most feature-rich portfolio of GC, GC/MS instruments and software available today, supported by factory-tested, preconfigured solutions to help fast-track setup and operation.

Based on the industry-leading GC platform, the Agilent 7890B GC provides:
- Improved performance specifications with advances in numerous detector modules;
- Lower operating costs and eco-friendly operation with power/gas management and sleep/wake modes;
- Seamless consumables and parts ordering;
- Easier, faster method development with integrated GC calculators and wizards;
- Better asset/resource management with integrated maintenance tools;
- Improved recovery of active compounds with Agilent's proprietary end-to-end Inert Flow Path deactivation technology;
- Reduced downtime for MS maintenance.

Running on Agilent OpenLAB Chromatography Data System software, the Agilent 7890B GC is up to 40 times faster than previous versions, and features a new Data Analysis package and Intelligent Reporting function. Advanced interactive integration tools and graphical displays accelerate data review, reducing time-to-results and freeing up operators for other tasks.

The Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD enjoys all the benefits of the 7890B GC and features a redesigned inert MS inlet that enhances performance with improved ion collection efficiency. It provides the highest sensitivity on the market, with a new specification metric, the Instrument Detection Limit, which guarantees true system-level performance in practice.

Using Agilent's TwisTorr 304 FS turbomolecular pump, optimized for light gas operation, the 5977A system is efficient and rugged, and certified to meet industry-leading quality standards. Running on Agilent MassHunter Workstation software, the 5977A is ideally suited for high-productivity GC/MS.

MassHunter Workstation Software 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 and also includes a full version of MSD ChemStation to ensure compatibility with previously purchased instruments.

For GC/MS users in the environmental, food, 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.
