Gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) is actually two techniques that are combined to form a single method of analyzing mixtures of chemicals. If you are new to this technique, please read our tutorial first.

Agilent's 7890A GC takes our lab to the next level of GC and GC/MS performance, including advanced separation capabilities, and real-time self-monitoring instrument intelligence. Faster oven cool-down and robust backflushing let you get more done in less time, at a lower cost per sample. 5th-generation Electronic Pneumatics Control (EPC) and digital electronics set a new benchmark for pressure setpoint and retention time locking precision (0.001 psi) and help make the 7890A the most dependable GC ever.

The Agilent 5975C inert MSD with its new Triple-Axis Detector gives the innovative design features that boost our lab's productivity and advanced analytical capabilities that enhance our results—and our confidence. In addition to delivering better MS resolution and the lowest mass deviation available, the system offers superior sensitivity and spectral integrity. Advanced analysis routines let us get more information from every run, and the latest version of automated spectral deconvolution, identification, and quantification software provides higher quality analyses with even less operator time and attention.


This GC-MS is located at the Prince William Campus in SRIF Lab 221of Discovery Hall Building.
