Agilent Agilent GCQQQ Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer (GC-MS) Fatty Acid Facility Gas Chromatograph (GC)

The Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) instrument separates chemical mixtures (the GC component) and identifies the components at a molecular level (the MS component). It is one of the most accurate tools for analyzing environmental samples. The GC works on the principle that a mixture will separate into individual substances when heated. The heated gases are carried through a column with an inert gas (helium). As the separated substances emerge from the column opening, they flow into the MS. Mass spectrometry identifies compounds by the mass of the analyte molecule.

Agilent Chemstation

The Agilent ChemStation is a software package to control Agilent liquid chromatography and gas chromatography systems such as the 1050, 1100 and 1200 Series HPLC system. It has a command line interpreter and can run macros. Those macros are files grouping a set of commands. These files possess a .mac extension. ChemStation can import analysis lists and export result files in XML by adding new lines to the ChemStation.ini configuration file. This is a feature to implement the connection with a Laboratory information management system (LIMS).

Agilent 5073N Gas Chromatograph Coupled to Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS) Gas Chromatograph (GC)

Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) is a method that combines the features of gas-liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry to identify different substances within a test sample. Applications of GC-MS include drug detection, fire investigation, environmental analysis, explosives investigation, and identification of unknown samples. GC/MS can also be used in airport security to detect substances in luggage or on human beings. Additionally, it can identify trace elements in materials that were previously thought to have disintegrated beyond identification.
