Third-Generation Instrument Delivers Enhanced Analytical Performance and Unique Capabilities


Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced a new high-resolution, accurate-mass system designed for laboratories doing food and environmental testing, life science research, forensics and chemical analysis.

The Agilent 7250 GC/Q-TOF system combines gas chromatography and quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry with a Low Energy Electron Ionization source that enables greater exploration of unknown chemical samples. The Agilent 7250 GC/Q-TOF system is being showcased at the ASMS conference being held June 3 through June 8 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The new system represents the only commercially available combination of a high-resolution, accurate-mass GC/MS and low-energy ionization source, making it possible for scientists to employ analytical techniques that were not previously practical, or in some cases even possible.

The capabilities of the 7250 GC/Q-TOF system will now allow labs to quickly and easily identify volatile and semi-volatile compounds that, in the past, would require them to perform alternative techniques, or longer sample preparations to detect and determine the compounds present in their samples. Furthermore, with Low Energy Electron Ionization, scientists will be better able to elucidate chemical structures.

"The 7250 allows users to implement a range of GC/MS experiments that are difficult to execute accurately with other GC/MS technologies," said Monty Benefiel, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Mass Spectrometry Division. "It is an excellent fit for labs that need a combination of fast scanning, high resolution and accurate mass information from a single analysis—a combination where Q-TOF mass spectrometry excels."

Agilent offers a range of GC/MS technologies for both qualitative and quantitative analysis across a wide variety of applications.
