The HP Agilent 5973 is a high performing mass selective detector that offers unmatched reliability for every use. This stand-alone capillary detector was specifically designed to be used with the HP 6890 Gas Chromatograph series. The HP 5973 MSD system gives operators full control through a data system that features MSD compatible data analysis software with a suitable mass spectral library.

Increase productivity with the following MSD features:

  • Either a 90 L/sec vapor-diffusion or a 250 L/sec turbomolecular high vacuum pump
  • Independently heated electron-ionization ion source
  • Independently heated hyperbolic quadrupole mass filter
  • Independently heated GC/MSD interface
  • Power supplies and instrument control electronics

Applications integrated into the software allow for the configuration and customization of the instruments including the HP 5973 and other MSDs. Tuning programs are responsible for voltage regulation in the ion source, calibration of mass assignments and scanning of the control analyzer.

Applications for data acquisition allow users to keep an eye on the total ion chromatogram (TIC). The mass spectra of GC peaks can be stored automatically by using the same type of program, specifically by using the scan mode. The selected ion monitoring (SIM) SIM mode allows selective monitoring of particular ions. Data analysis programs permit integration of chromatograms in TIC or SIM as well as the viewing and manipulation of mass spectral data. Users can compare obtained spectra to reference spectra databases in a library search. Users can also quantify data and generate reports with information-analyzing applications.
