Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS)
The Agilent 5975C GC/MSD is a single quadrupole, benchtop GC/MS instrument and is the instrument for screening and characterising complex mixtures of volatile organic compounds. It is fitted with a programmable temperature vaporising (PTV) and on-column injector and can operates both in electron ionisation (EI) and chemical ionisation (CI) mode. An Agilent 7683 autoinjector and robotic sample tray is fitted to the GC to facilitate high sample throughput, as well as the latest QuickSwap capillary flow technology allowing column changes or inlet maintenance without venting the MS and backflushing. In addition, both the injector and oven can be cooled (independently), using liquid nitrogen.
For more information about GC/MS see the NERC life sciences mass spectrometry facility.
