SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today launched the 7000C Triple Quadrupole Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS/MS). The system replaces the industry's best-selling GC/MS/MS, the 7000B, with new capabilities to enhance system performance, simplify method optimization and lower operating costs.
The Agilent 7000C system integrates new ion-source technology that was introduced earlier this year on the company's 5977 Series GC/MSD and reinforces Agilent's market-leading GC/MS brand for trace analysis. The new system has an instrument detection limit of only 4 fg octafluoronapththalene.
New integrated intelligence features shared by the 7890B GC and 7000C, plus new tools for Agilent's MassHunter software, support rapid method development, complete method optimization and reduced energy consumption.
'Our customers value the high productivity of our current triple quad models. Now, with the advanced 7000C system, they get improved capabilities that offer long-term supportability and performance,' said Terry Sheehan, GC/MS marketing director at Agilent. 'The 7000C Triple Quadrupole GC/MS/MS, together with Agilent sample-preparation supplies, enables sensitive, selective and robust techniques for measuring trace components in complex matrices. In addition, our extensive MRM database of pesticides and environmental pollutants provides all the information needed for quick and easy method development.'
The Agilent 7000C Triple Quadrupole GC/MS/MS offers reliability, efficiency, and ultra-low limits of detection for ultimate confidence in trace-level analysis. Agilent's Inert Flow Path solutions assure sample integrity for consistently high sensitivity, accuracy and reproducibility.
