HydroInert Source for Hydrogen Carrier Gas on GC/MS
The Agilent HydroInert Source is a GC/MS ion source that improves chromatographic performance when using hydrogen as carrier gas in GC/MS. It helps to avoid loss of sensitivity and spectral anomalies, while offering a high-boiler peak shape. The Agilent HydroInert source reduces the need for GC/MS ion source cleaning, decreasing system downtime and maintenance and resulting in fewer interruptions to data generation.
Chromatographic-quality stainless steel tubing and fittings are often recommended for hydrogen plumbing. Agilent offers a stainless steel install kit (19199S) to help prevent serious contamination problems.
Users can continue to use existing He-based mass spectral libraries and quantitative methods.
