High price, solid machine
Rating: 3.0

  • Application Area:Natural products

"We have bought a new Agilent Technologies 7890A GC System with an Agilent Technologies 7693 Autosampler and OpenLab software. We are satisfied with the parameters of the GC. There is only one disadvantage (comparing with an old 6890 GC): 7890B has got two speed ventilator for the fast oven cooling: the higher speed of the ventilator is very noisy. Luckily we have bought another OpenLab licence for the Data analysis only. So we can evaluate the chromatograms in the quiet office contrary to the noisy laboratory. On the other hand, the analysis using 7890A GC is faster than with 6890 GC. The priority in our laboratory is high throughput, which is great. I recommend this GC machine."

"The price is moderate, and achievable to get. The after sales is quite difficult to get in my country, but perhaps its only because of my remote location. One thing that this product is lacking has to be the report mode. It's difficult to use and modify the original template."

"This is Mr Reliable among the GC equipment available on the market today. It has a very good range of inlet selections (eg. split/splitless/PTV /etc) and also offers the choice of a wide range of analysis (FID, MS, etc..). The sample holder can handle up to 80-100 samples and has a very good user interface that is the icing on the cake. I highly recommend to all!"

It does have issues communicating with our auto sampler but is a very robust and versatile instrument. "

"The system is very reliable and the result very reproducible. Cleaning of the system can take some time and can be difficult, but it is not a frequent necessity. The software is user friendly but it takes some time to get used to it. It is very useful for pesticide screening, especially in water. I have seen some good results. It is also very useful for Toxicological screening with an MSD or MS. I highly recommended for this function."

Agilent is very easy to work with and has fast response times for problems I can't figure out on my own. I would recommend this system and the 7890 GC to any analyst that wants a robust, easy to use GC system."

"This is our second GC-MS from Agilent. It has held up well with little problems. It has much higher sensitivity than the previous model but just as robust. We also use it with a pyrolysis unit from Quantum which we find useful but rather difficult to maintain and we're not as impressed as with our old Pyro Probe."

"Terrific workhorse instrument- after sales service can be spotty without service contract- technical support by phone is very good. Agilent pricing for single instrument sales is non-competitive, even for the better instrument."

"I would like to see a change in Inlet Nut capability."

Review date: 27 Mar 2003 | 6890N GC
The Agilent 6890N GC has been made obsolete.  This includes the G1530N, G1530N-EU, G1540N, and G1942N mainframes and all associated options.  Agilent will provide guaranteed support for these products through July 31, 2015.  Accessories for your 6890N GC can still be ordered.
The 7890A GC system is the latest gas chromatograph from Agilent and is the replacement product for the 6890N.
