I use an Agilent (HP) GC 5890 Series II and inject manualy. I heard the old HP autosampler is obsolete. Does anyone know any company to manufacture autosamplers which are capable of working with HP 5890 GC? What cost of such can be?

The 6890 Series works with the 5890

Also, try Quantum Analytics, Alpha Omega, or others for refurbished 7673s.

CTC Analytics manufactures autosamplers that can be used with HP GCs - not as cheap as a used 7673, but another option to consider.

CTC is OK but very expensive.
There is an autosampler called HT300A made by an Italian company (HTA); I was unable to locate their Web site but I found informations in 2 dealers' sites :

New 6890 auto samplers will not work on 5890's
CTC (Leap) in the US are very nice but as mentioned expensive.
There is a company in Baton Rouge LA Cemtral Development they have a compact sampler less features than the CTC, but basic features most people require are there site is centraldevelopmentllc.com

Shimadzu makes one that works on the 5890.

Hi anonymous (March 6). Do you know if Shimadzu autosampler could be controled by the Chemstation

The Shimadzu autosampler is not controlled by Chemstation. It operates in standalone mode and sends a start signal to the GC. There is also an adapter plate required.

EST Analytical has a system called the Cobra. It is basically a Leap clone, but much less expensive. I think if you are not going to keep your autosampler they will offer you a trade-in on it.

Accoridng to the website the HT300A can be controlled by the Chemstation if it uses a small interface box. They claim it will work in exactly the same way as the 7673 would. Has anyone tried this?

a complete Agilent autosampler costs approximatively 15000 euros,a ctc combipal or mps2 costs 20000 euros only for liquid injections,but you could add many options to the ctc like spme,headspace etc...and it works with differents gc,like hp5890,6890,varian,trace etc...
The Agilent could only perform liquid injection on a agilent gc!
CTc a more expensive but that's the price of flexibility.
