“Our customers require the means to efficiently and accurately analyze their data as well as information about their laboratory assets to support decision making or gain further scientific insight. OpenLAB does all of that,” said Bruce von Herrmann, Agilent vice president for Software and Informatics. “With streamlined workflows and complete data and method migration from ChemStation and EZChrom, OpenLAB is a fully scalable solution for a single laboratory, multiple workgroups, and entire enterprises.”The Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD The Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD enjoys all the benefits of the 7890B GC and features a redesigned inert MS ion source that enhances performance with highly efficient ion collection. The Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD now offers the highest sensitivity on the market, with a new specification metric, the Instrument Detection Limit, guaranteeing true system-level performance in practice. Using Agilent’s TwisTorr 304 FS turbomolecular pump, optimized for light gas operation, the new 5977A GC/MSD system is efficient and rugged, and has been evaluated and certified to meet industry-leading Agilent quality standards. The Agilent 5977A Series GC/MSD runs on Agilent MassHunter Workstation software. Ideally suited for high-productivity GC/MS, MassHunter 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. MassHunter for MSD systems also includes a full version of MSD ChemStation to ensure compatibility with previously purchased instruments. Agilent Inert Flow Path Solutions For GC/MS customers in the food, environmental 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.
