SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today introduced the 7200B
Quadrupole Time of Flight (Q-TOF) Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer
(GC/MS) System. The system replaces the company’s most advanced
GC/QTOF, the 7200A, with new capabilities that will significantly boost
“The Agilent 7200B Quadrupole Time of Flight GC/MS system offers
reliability and confidence for the most challenging applications,” said
Terry Sheehan, Agilent’s GC/MS marketing director. “Improved hardware
performance, newly upgraded software features, and exact mass databases
will provide immediate value for laboratories working in a variety of
complex applications, such as food safety, environmental, designer
drugs, doping and metabolomics research.”
The Agilent 7200B system provides improved mass accuracy specification
of less than 3 ppm and an extended mass range, optimizing its
capabilities for the most challenging problems. These performance
enhancements will allow for the analysis of larger mass compounds and
will be particularly beneficial when coupled to Thermal Separation
Probes (TSP) or Direct Injection Probes (DIP). Other enhancements
include Chemical Ionization Source and Backflush capabilities as
standard on all GC/Q-TOF systems.
This new high-performance instrumentation, combined with exact mass
libraries and screening tools from Agilent’s
MassHunter Workstation Software, provides scientists with a new
level of confidence in library searching and a more efficient means to
screen samples for both known and unknown compounds.
