"Agilent has produced a reliable GC as always, the MS part is well done as well as easy linkage betweeen the two systems. The software is a little bit too complex, maybe some intensive training would help."

"Good performace with MMI injector and backflush features. I run high fat food sample with modified QuEChERS method and has no column performace issue. Need to improve the data reporting particularly when you try to screen 200+ analyte and found only 1 or 2 pesticides over the LOQ to report. Need to improve the Qual software by adding name of analyte instead of Q1/Q3 mass so you can screen it faster. Check the Analyst software for LC/MS to understand what I mean."
Concern over pesticides contamination increases the demand for trace level analysis of residual pollutants in food, beverage and environmental samples. Extracts from these matrices contain target residues plus a mixture of organic compounds co-extracted during sample preparation that increase the difficulty to accurately quantitate and confirm the presence of target compounds. Based on the 7010B Triple Quadrupole GC/MS, Agilent’s Pesticides and Environmental Pollutants GC/MS/MS Analyzer 4.0 with the MassHunter Pesticide & Pollutant MRM Database provides the lowest possible detection and quantitation limits for pesticides residues in complex matrices. Dynamic MRM provides enhanced analytical efficiency by focusing on MRMs within its own RT window. Capillary Flow Technology (CFT) backflush optimizes cycle time, enhances robustness, and provides superior selectivity and sensitivity for routine operation.
