For labs that need to perform trace level analysis on very active compounds, Agilent Inert Flow Path solutions ensure a reliably inert flow path for higher sensitivity, accuracy, and reproducibility. These analyses can now be done with the utmost confidence because each lot of Agilent Inert Flow Path components are qualified using chromatographic QC tests to provide reliable, consistent inertness that spans the entire flow path.
Agilent Ultra Inert Liners contain deactivated glass wool to provide deactivation with no loss of sensitivity, and feature a pre-installed O-ring that has been pre-cleaned, conditioned, and non-stick plasma treated – shipped with our unique touchless packaging that allows quick and easy installation without risk of contamination.
Foods and Flavors
Flow path inertness is the next frontier in food analyses, and Agilent is breaking new ground with our ongoing development of Ultra Inert flow path solutions including liners, columns, and instruments – as well as test mixes and procedures. Together, these innovations ensure a highly inert flow path, improving your ability to analyze difficult, active compounds at trace levels.
Whether you’re quantifying pesticide residues in water, analyzing contaminants in soil, or measuring atmospheric impurities – environmental analysis must be done more reliably, more efficiently, and with higher quality data than ever before. Agilent Ultra Inert flow path solutions help you achieve excellent peak shapes for problematic compounds – plus reliable quantitation at low levels.
Agilent Ultra Inert solutions deliver the selectivity and sensitivity you need for excellent peak shapes and consistent recovery of low-level analytes, which makes Agilent the ideal choice for forensics applications.
Agilent Ultra Inert Gold Seals eliminate tiny leaks that can reduce system sensitivity, cause poor signal to noise ration, increase column bleed, and even shorten column lifetime. A metal injection molding process that provides a consistent, smooth surface, without ridges and grooves from a machined process. The seals are then polished and gold plated for smooth surface, and for greater convenience, are carefully packaged with the inlet seal washer.
Ferrules & Connectors
The proprietary design of Agilent UltiMetal Plus Flexible Metal ferrules lets you establish leak-free connections between columns and capillary flow technology (CFT) devices. Our metal ferrules also fix the problems of column breakage during installation, poor fit, and damage to the fitting experienced with other metal ferrules – providing an inert, easy-to-use solution for GC capillary column connections.
Within the entire GC flow path, the GC column represents the majority of the surface area. Therefore, it is critical to select columns for your demanding applications that are optimized for sharp peak shape of chemically active compounds.
For a limited time, SAVE 25% on new Agilent DB-WAX UI columns and other Ultra Inert supplies.
Agilent J&W DB-WAX Ultra Inert columns offer greater inertness for a broad range of challenging polar compounds, resulting in more accurate identification and low-level quantification compared to Phenomenex, Restek and other column brands. And if you're an existing DB-WAX user, you can upgrade to our new DB-WAX UI with little to no method revalidation.

Tip: Optimize the Inlet
The velocity for sample compounds is slower at the front end of the GC flow path. As such, it is critical to optimize your GC inlet with the components with the most advanced deactivation to reduce band broadening or peak tailing due to active surfaces at the inlet:
Tip: Optimize GC Flow Path Connection Integrity
Eliminate leaks at connection points along the GC flowpath with with the latest deactivation and engineered components designed for consistently inert and leak free connections:
