Agilent Technologies Inc.. (6/16/10). "Press Release: Agilent Technologies eSeminar to Share Advanced Methods for Analyzing Environmental Matrixes Contaminated with Petroleum Hydrocarbons". Santa Clara, CA.

Products Product GC/MS (gas chromatography/mass spectrometry)
  Product 2 environmental analysis
     


Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) will host an eSeminar on "Advanced Analytical Technologies for Analyzing Environmental Matrixes Contaminated with Petroleum Hydrocarbons" on Thursday, July 8, at 2 p.m. ET.

In response to the Gulf Coast oil spill, Agilent scientists immediately began working with government agencies tasked in the monitoring of environmental and food samples. The eSeminar will discuss the newest methods and technologies used to help customers identify the best technology solutions for testing environmental and food matrixes contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons.

Various applications will be discussed for analyzing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), Semi-VOCs, petroleum hydrocarbons and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in marine water, sediment and seafood. Advanced technologies are used to increase sample analysis productivity and enhance detection limit, including QuEChERS with dispersive SPE for cleanup; GC with capillary flow technology backflush and LTM-GC; GC/MS, GC/MS/MS, LC/FLD; and LC-QQQ, Q-TOF LC/MS.

The e-Seminar will focus on the use of QuEChERS, GC/MS, and the newly developed Agilent GC/MS/MS PAH analyzers. GC/MS/MS PAH analyzers are turnkey systems that have undergone complete factory setup and chemical testing prior to shipment so that samples can be run on day one. The analyzers come with a set of calibration standards and documentation to significantly reduce method development and start-up time. Backflush, based on Capillary Flow Technology, is built-in to reduce overall cycle time and optimize uptime. Sample preparation is accomplished using fast and simple Agilent QuEChERS PAH kits that offer the environmental benefit of eliminating the use of a chlorinated solvent. The combination of QuEChERS and advanced GC/MS technologies can reduce overall analysis time by a factor of five and improve detection limits versus the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration standard method.

Panelists include Joni Stevens, Agilent senior application chemist for sample extraction; and Mike Szelewski, Agilent senior application scientist for environmental analysis.
