The GC in my lab is Agilent 7820A that my supervisor bought it 2-3 years ago. The configuration of GC is as follows:
- One detector FID
- One inlet Split/Splitless
- One line for gas sample and One gas sampling valve. However, I am not sure there is a gas loop inside the GC because the GC have never been used to analyse any gas sample.
- One column DB-5 Sil
Now, my supervisor wants to upgrade the GC that it can be used to analyse permanent gases and hydrocarbons. However, when I asked the representative in my region, he said that 7820 GC's were made to the customers specification so were sold as a completely configured solution rather than for method development. It means that our GC could not be added any detector or inlet.
So I would like to know that it is right?
