Agilent Technologies, Inc. has introduced the 240 and 220 Ion Trap GC/MS systems. These systems combine the ionization and scan modes of an ion trap mass spectrometer with the Capillary Flow Technology of the Agilent 7890A gas chromatograph.
The Agilent 240 Ion Trap MS offers a sub-picogram detection limit in full scan mode. The instrument also features MS/MS and MSn capabilities, which reduce matrix influences and provide detailed structural data. EI, CI, and MS/MS can be performed in the same run, providing selectivity for complex matrix analysis. Applications include environmental analysis, materials testing, food quality, and safety measurement, as well as wide range of research and routine analyses performed in government and academic labs.
The Agilent 220 Ion Trap MS is designed for educational labs, as well as labs needing operation for high-throughput, routine testing such as regulated groundwater, wastewater, or volatile organic compound analysis. Users can start with EI and upgrade to CI or MS/MS as needed.
The ion trap MS modules are designed to take advantage of the Agilent 7890A GC, especially with complex samples and at low detection limits. Agilent’s 7693A Automatic Liquid Sampler helps boost productivity and flexibility, offering fast injection and capabilities such as sandwich injections using up to three layers with air gap.
