GCMS instruments are a common feature of the modern analytical laboratory and are reliable tools for investigative and targeted analysis. However, with regulations in varying industries calling for lower limits of detection and increases in sample numbers, this type of analysis can be a hard task to deal with on aging, well used versions such as the 5973 and 5975 MSD, and also puts considerable strain on employees. With the development of the Agilent 5977B High Efficiency Source MSD, being able to accurately detect and quantitate trace components is now less of a problem. As a result of this sensitivity, the possibility of using automated techniques to deal with larger sample number opens up. In this webinar we will talk about 5977B HES, the differences and benefits compared to older models, and how these attributes may be used to enhance laboratory capability.

What you will learn:

  • How the latest in mass spectrometry instrumentation can be used in conjunction with automation to maintain limits of detection whilst reducing sample size
  • How the use of modern GC/MSD instruments can simplify analysis of complex environmental samples to identify trace level contaminants
  • How automation can be applied to water and environmental sample analysis
  • How liquid-liquid extraction can be automated, and the benefits of different extraction styles

Who should attend:

  1. Users of GC-MS
  2. Environmental analysts
  3. Environmental Laboratory Managers
  4. Scientists interested in increasing productivity through automation and modern instrumentation
