GC Columns with Smart Key are specifically designed for your 8890 GC instrument.
A selection of Gas Chromatography (GC) columns with Smart Key are available and compatible only with the 8890 GC. Smart Keys allow for immediate identification and usage monitoring of your GC column. A variety of stationary phases are available, ranging from Ultra Inert and Poly Ethylene Glycol (PEG) to unique, application-specific stationary phases.
If your configuration is not available, please request a custom column with Smart Key through the Custom Column Shop.

The broad portfolio of Agilent columns that are available is really a key aspect in developing methods. What is also very important is that we have a broad range of lengths, internal diameters and film thicknesses.
We have also been a long time user of the J&W Columns and we exclusively use those for high temp simulated distillation using the steel columns. Because of the nature of our work, we take the columns routinely every 50 minutes to about
In my 30 years of experience in running virtually every USEPA semivolatile method...the performance of the Agilent J&W DB-UI 8270D GC column has raised the bar for semivolatile analysis...The DB-UI 8270D has demonstrated:
• Superior chromatographic resolution (PAHs specifically are phenomenal)
• Superior inertness (reactivity of acid-fraction components like 4-Nitrophenol and 2,4-Dinitrophenol, which have low pKa values, is minimal)
• Superior breakdown characteristics (4,4'-DDT and Endrin breakdown is well below all method requirements and in many examples <5%!)
• Superior peak tailing performance of Pentachlorophenol and Benzidine (Benzidine, for example is Gaussian in peak shape)
Switching from helium to hydrogen carrier gas for your GC and GC/MS methods offers several benefits, such as faster run times and better chromatographic resolution. It also addresses the current and future helium supply issues and increased costs. Our new Hydrogen Sensor Module Series 2 for 8890 and 8860 GC systems will help you transition with confidence.
The analysis of fats and oils is one of the most traditional and challenging applications in Gas Chromatography, and as such, there is a vast number of GC Columns designed specifically for these types of analyses. Unfortunately, choosing the right GC column for the right application is not an easy choice, and most people end up defaulting to a familiar choice that runs ‘just fine’, sacrificing efficiency and productivity in the long term.
This webinar will provide you with a guideline and tips to find out if you are using the right GC column and supplies choice for the right fat & oil application.
