I operate an Agilent 7890B-GC/5977A-MSD and a 7820A-GC-FID, both with autosampler.
Those systems are yearly maintained by Agilent.
So far, GC-MS is for qualitative analysis (compounds identification through library search for normal injection and HS-SPME) and GC-FID is used for quantitative analysis through a multiple point internal standard method.
We are certified ISO-9001 but not ISO-17025. The analysis performed are for internal use only.
I have been asked to propose a routine check of the systems for QC. Basically to show that they are working fine.
Since I am not sure what kind of tests should be performed for this purpose, I would like to ask your opinion.
At first, it does not have to be too fancy. It will improve with time.
As for GC-MS, we were thinking about providing regular autotune / tune evaluation reports.
For GC-FID, I have no idea if a report can be generated for this purpose.
Thanks a lot for the help.
