    Abstract

    Agilent is now offering a comprehensive analyser package for the target based, multiresidue screening of environmental waters on the Agilent 5977 GC/MS. This screening method uses Target Deconvolution (TD) on the MassHunter Quantitative software. It is suitable for the analysis of environmental waters as required by the Water Framework Directive (WFD 2000/60/EC). This method uses a target MS library that contains over 1000 compounds, including both volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), allowing for the rapid identifi cation and reporting of organic pollutants in an extracted water sample. The entire system is manufactured and supported by Agilent and includes instrument hardware, proven methods conforming to the required Quality standards, the target MS library, as well as operational consumables. Agilent’s installation, commissioning and training program with clearly defi ned timelines means that the receiving laboratory can rapidly plan for routine operation within a matter of weeks. It should be noted that the library is fully customisable to suit the needs of the laboratory.
