Intelligent Gas Chromatography Systems

Agilent Technologies Inc. launches two new gas chromatography systems Agilent 8890 and 8860 GC that will incorporate innovative and intelligent ‘self-aware’ predictive technology, expanding their suite of smart-connected GC instruments.

The company has also introduced Cary 3500 UV-Vis system which is an innovative spectrophotometer designed to help life science, pharma and biopharma research communities simplify their analyses, optimise laboratory productivity, and ultimately help bring new therapeutics to market faster.

The 8890 and 8860 GCs are built on a next-generation electronic architecture platform, based on the innovative technologies of the Intuvo 9000 GC, Agilent’s flagship existing GC system. Continuous system monitoring, automated diagnostics and built-in troubleshooting routines will help labs avoid unplanned downtime and increase lab efficiency – both top goals of lab managers today. Remote connectivity through mobile devices such as tablets and laptops, allows operators and managers to securely access instrument status and function while away from the lab.

Agilent also introduced two powerful Blank and Detector Evaluation smart routines on the 8890 and 8860 GC systems, enabling automatic determination of system readiness. These new predictive functions will also be available for upgrade on Agilent’s Intuvo 9000 GC systems.

The new GC systems have been designed to provide customers with continual expansion of system intelligence functions. These new functions are also available for Agilent’s existing GC systems.

Automated diagnostics and troubleshooting routines will allow operators to attend to more high-value activities such as reviewing data and attending to new customer needs, helping them to grow their enterprises.
