Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the Agilent 500 Ion Trap LC/MS, an affordable and accurate MS/MS solution for chemical analysis, food- and product-safety testing, and other industrial applications.

The 500 Ion Trap LC/MS is a robust and reliable analytical instrument that offers routine, affordable MS, MS/MS, and MSn capabilities. The system can be ordered and operated with the complete line of Agilent LC products. With the choice of many ionization modes and scanning techniques the new 500 Ion Trap is a flexible system that can screen, identify and confirm compounds in a single experiment.

The new 500 Ion Trap has many advanced features that make it an excellent choice for routine analytical applications:
* easy-to-use ESI and APCI interface;
* rugged design means less downtime for cleaning the source;
* accurate and reproducible results in difficult matrices;
* "Gold-Guard" (patent pending) ion optics that jointly enhance sensitivity, ruggedness and throughput ; and
* highest sensitivity.

"The ability to obtain on-the-fly MS experimental data means faster characterization with greater reliability," said James Neal-Kababick, director of Flora Research Laboratories. "The Agilent 500 Ion Trap offers power and versatility not found in other traps, all for a reasonable price.

"The 500 Ion Trap LC/MS system fits perfectly into the Agilent LC/MS product portfolio," said Ken Miller, Agilent marketing director, LC/MS Division. "It offers the flexibility of routine, affordable compound identification and quantification that is ideal for many labs."

The Agilent 500 Ion Trap LC/MS joins a strong portfolio of LC/MS instruments. Earlier this year, Agilent introduced the 6490 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS System with iFunnel technology. iFunnel technology revolutionizes the process of atmospheric pressure ion sampling, driving huge sensitivity gains for most applications.
