PAL Auto Sampler Systems
The PAL3 sample injectors enable GC and GC/MS laboratories to increase productivity with greater automated sample preparation capabilities and a variety of sample vial options. The high-end PAL3 sample injector offers three types of sample injection techniques: liquid injection, headspace, and solid phase microextraction (SPME). The lower-cost GC injector platform can be configured for liquid injection only but offers many of the other capabilities of the PAL3 Autosampler System including large volume injection (LVI), multiple vial sizes, and extended sample vial capacity.
The analytical technique known as thermal desorption (TD) provides the ability to measure volatile contaminants in air, toys, building materials, car cabins, and food. This technique also provides unique analyses in applications for forensics, defense, and general emissions testing. When the TD systems from Markes International
are combined with Agilent GC and GC/MS systems the results meet current requirements with sensitivity and dynamic range to meet current regulations and future needs.
Markes International TD platforms allow analysis of single tubes, real-time air samples, and canisters with options for automated analysis. Markes has introduced several key technical advances that now set the standard for TD instrumentation. GC and GC/MS with TD systems are sold and supported by Agilent’s worldwide sales and service organization.
Purge and Trap
Agilent Technologies, Inc. has entered into an agreement with Teledyne Tekmar to distribute their purge and trap instrumentation. Tekmar is a worldwide leader in Purge and Trap Sample Preparation Systems. The Lumin Purge and Trap Concentrator, built upon technology Tekmar developed, is the recommended sample preparation system for removing VOCs from various matrices. The AQUATek 100 Waters-only Autosampler provides 100-vial automated sample preparation for the analysis of liquid samples. For those analyzing soils and waters, the Atomx Automated VOC Sample Prep System will meet your needs. The Atomx combines the features of the purge and trap with that of an autosampler all into one system as well as automating methanol extractions for high level soils. All instruments are available for purchase directly from Agilent.
Thermal Separation Probe
The Agilent Thermal Separation Probe (TSP) provides fast analysis of solid, liquid, and slurry samples. The process is simple, clean, and requires limited or zero sample preparation. Non-vaporized high boiling point ‘dirty sample matrix’– compounds, which can contaminate the GC liner and column, remain inside the micro-vial, and can be discarded after each injection. Use the TSP when testing complex samples in food, forensics, and environmental applications.
6850 Automatic Liquid Sampler
The Agilent 6850 Automatic Liquid Sampler (ALS) with the Agilent 6850 gas chromatograph is the ideal gas chromatography system for routine QA/QC analyses.

Its high sample capacity and increased sensitivity provide excellent performance over a wide range of analyses. The total solution-from sampling to data analysis to reporting-gives you the highest confidence in your results.
Retention Time Locking
Good gas chromatography techniques require consistent retention times. When a research lab develops a method for a new product using a GC/MS
, the QC lab must run large numbers using a FID or ECD to ensure quality, requires consistent retention times. When a method for a single quadrupole GC/MS or a triple quadrupole GC/MS is developed on one instrument and shared across multiple instruments to ensure quality data the peaks must remain in the isolation windows, requires consistent retention times. Deconvolution Reporting Software (DRS)
Libraries with RTL for Pesticides, Air Toxins, Metabolomics, and Forensics provide even better search results with consistent retention times.
Retention Time Locking on the 7890 Series GC
and 6850 II GC
systems provides consistent retention time capability not possible with other tools. This capability provides analysts and laboratory QC departments assured consistent data quality.
