Article Recommended Shutdown Procedure for Agilent TOF/QTOF

In response to the COVID-19 crisis many customers are contacting Agilent for recommendations in shut down procedures.


  1. If you have an uninterrupted drying gas source (N2 generator) we recommend you put the system into Standby.
  2.  If you have an interrupted drying gas source (dewars) we recommend venting the system following the procedures attached. Emphasis should be placed on the importance of waiting for the vent to complete (turbos spin down) and running the Smartcard shutdown script before powering off at the front button.
