Benefits & Features of the Agilent 8809 Gas Chromatograph System


  • Remote connectivity enables you to monitor your GC system, check system logs, and perform diagnostics tests from inside and outside of the laboratory at any time
  • Full-function touchscreen controls system configuration letting you update methods and sequences, perform maintenance routines, and check instrument status
  • Built-in intelligence autonomously monitors the health of the system, alerts the user of potential issues before they affect chromatographic performance, and offers helpful step-by-step guides to resolve issues.
  • Significantly improved reliability and longevity against gas contaminants such as particulates, water, and oils which extends the life of the instrument consumables
  • Capillary Flow Technology (CFT) provides unique gas flow connections for multi-dimension gas chromatography (GC x GC/Deans Switch), comprehensive two-dimension gas chromatography (GC x GC) with flow modulation
  • Single filament TCD that doesn’t require a separate reference gas or manual potentiometer adjustment provides a stable baseline with a minimal signal drift.
  • Auto-ranging FID provides the ability to detect and quantitate from percent levels to parts per billion (ppb) in a single injection.
  • Compatible with all GC/MS platforms
  • Cost-saving advanced electronic pneumatic controllers such as Helium Conservation Module, Hydrogen Sensors, and Alternate Carrier Gas Solutions, dramatically reduce the amount of helium used offering both flexibility and higher levels of safety in your laboratory.
  • Optional Smart ID Keys, included with GC columns, provide information such as column usage with default parameters for configuration that helps automate method setup.
