Excellent customer service.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Essential oils, flavor/fragrance chemicals, finished flavors/beverages

"Agilent provides excellent service for our GC/MS. We do have a service contract (which is pricey), but the service engineers always come quickly when there is a breakdown and keep in touch for PMs. They always do an excellent job when they arrive and are always willing to help and explain what they are doing."

Robust GC-MS system for multiple purposes.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Environmental and process analysis

"My experience with Agilent equipment and services has always been 100% possitive, robust systems easy to use and really powerful, always fullfilling my expectations and letting me concentrate on analysis (as the equipment is always running without problems and with low maintenance). I have been using the oldest versions and this one for years for environmental, processes control, quality control and diagnosis purposes as it's a very easy to adapt and polivalent system."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:The equipment is invaluable and reliable in our analysis of organic compounds in gas samples

"The equipment is reliable and provides consistent results. Quantum Analytics is our representative for the Agilent GCMS technology. They have taken exceptional care of our requirements including reinstalling software when we had a virus attack. This is the 4th Agilent GCMS that I have purchased. I have tried others but always go back to Agilent. "

Our laboratory can't keep going without this equipment. We get great result by using GC-MS.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze volatile compounds in food

"We achieve high quality and reproducible results. It is very easy to use, because it is completed with familiar software. The distributor in Indonesia (PT Berca Niaga Medika/BNM) provides very good after-sales care (if we have trouble with our GC-MS, the technicians come in one - two days after we contact them). The operational cost of the equipment is cheap considering the high quality results. Most of the samples from our customers are analyzed using this GC-MS."

Satisfied with its reliable results.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Analysis of drugs of abuse e.g. methamfetamine, heroin etc.

"It is a screening and confirmation tool which can be used to solve unknown drug related forensic cases. As many street level drugs of abuse are adultrated with cutting agents so many presumptive color testing cannot give a clear indication for the presence of drug of interest yet this analytical with its high level of sensitivity can be used for presumptive testing. Moreover it can be used for drug confirmation as it is hypinated. Its sensible limit of detection and quantitation can help analyst to perform drug relsted task with reliable results depending upon client request /contract/memorandum. Reliable Results give analyst to a relax opportunity to answer upcoming analysis related questions."

Agilent GC/MS improves productivity in labs, produces consistent & high quality results.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyse drugs, metabolites and pesticides in biological samples

"GC/MS are widely used for drugs and pesticides analysis especially for the screening of large numbers of compounds in complex biological specimens like blood, urine, liver, stomach contents, hair and other tissues. Full scan mode offers many advantages such as full spectrum, huge number of targeted compounds, confirmation of compounds and library search for identification. DRS can increase number of targets and also reducing the time required by samples. This system is capable of identifying compounds at trace level in full scan mode, reducing the demand for chromatographic resolution. In a single 15 min full scan GC/MS analysis, all the traget analytes can be detected. In short our Agilent GC/MS improves productivity in the laboratory and produces consistent and high quality data from start-up."

Excellent, dependable instrument.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analysis of essential oils, flavor chemicals and finished flavors/fragrances

"This MSD replaces an ancient instrument (over 20 years old). It has performed very well. Learning an entirely new program has taken a little getting used to, but over time it has proven to be far superior. The system is just about 1 year old and has not needed any service from Agilent. We have a service contract, but haven't needed anything except a visit from our service rep after a few months for some additional training. Soon we will get our first PM and we'll see how that turns out. The sensitivity is excellent, the software is very flexible. I am glad to have this new GC/MSD."
