Quality Control of Fragrance Samples by GC-FID: Method Transfer from the Agilent 7890 GC to the Agilent Intuvo 9000 GC
This Application Note describes the transfer of a reference method developed on an Agilent 7890 GC to the Agilent Intuvo 9000 GC, with the comparison of data obtained on typical fragrance and essential oil samples. It demonstrates that data quality is maintained on the Intuvo 9000 GC, while sample throughput can be increased using shorter narrow bore columns.
Fast Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Food Samples Using GC/MS/MS
This Application Note describes the evaluation and validation of a fast, 12.4-minute method for the multiresidue pesticide analysis of various fruits and vegetables using an Agilent Intuvo 9000 GC system and an Agilent 7010B triple quadrupole mass spectrometer.
Analysis of Terpene and Terpenoid Content in Cannabis Sativa Using Headspace with GC/MSD
The information obtained in terpene profiling helps determine how the plant might be optimally commercialized, as well as providing valuable feedback to the growers for establishing and maintaining consistent plants. The Agilent 8890 GC system, including an Agilent 5977A series single quadrupole mass selective detector and an Agilent 7697A headspace sampler for sample introduction can easily separate, identify, and quantify the terpenes in a given sample.
