Analysis of Headspace Samples using IMR-MS


The Agilent G1888 Headspace Sampler lets you automatically introduce volatile compounds from virtually any sample matrix directly into our V&F IMR-MS instruments. You control the AutoSampler using V&F software.

It features an inert sample pathway for superior chemical performance without analyte degradation or loss. And its high sample capacity (70-sample tray and 12 heating oven positions) and increased sensitivity ensure excellent performance for a wide range of analysis.
