TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Introduces Expanded Mobile Measurement
Portfolio for Multiple Field-Based Applications
Mobile Tools Expedite On-Site Analysis for Energy, Environmental, Food,
Forensics and Materials Markets
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- February 19, 2013
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced an expanded line of
analytical solutions designed for on-site field use, providing immediate
laboratory-quality measurements of a wide variety of samples.
The entire portfolio—a package of specially designed GC, GC/MS, FTIR and HPLC
technologies—can be used in multiple environments, spanning the breadth of
Agilent’s chemical analysis platform. These include food safety and quality
control, agriculture, forensics, mining, biofuels, chemical, and other
environmental and material applications. The complete line of mobile
measurement solutions is now available worldwide.
On Feb. 26, Agilent will sponsor a live webinar to introduce the complete
mobile measurement portfolio and explore practical applications for these
technologies. The webinar will also be available for replay following the live
event. To register, visit Mobile Measurement – Lab Quality Analysis When and
Where You Need It.
“We are pleased to introduce an increasing range of mobile measurement
solutions to our customers around the world,” said Ludovic Debusschere,
general manager of Agilent’s Micro GC Division, and leader of the mobile
measurement solutions team. “These exciting mobile devices are specially
engineered to enable rapid, on-site screening and analysis with the same
precision, selectivity and sensitivity provided by Agilent’s laboratory
The complete mobile measurement portfolio features five flagship instruments:
the 490 MicroGC, the 1220 Infinity Mobile LC, the 4100 ExoScan Handheld and
4500 Portable FTIR systems, and the 5975T Mobile GC/MSD, available with the
7667A Mini Thermal Desorber. These mobile devices are used to expedite food
production and quality testing; measure key parameters for biofuels, oil and
gas; perform non-destructive testing of materials; and monitor mining
operations. They are also used in homeland security, military and forensics
operations for the rapid detection of drugs and explosives, and to enable
on-site analysis of environmental samples such as air, water and soil.
“Providing instruments that customers can use when and where they need them is
another way Agilent helps scientists make important discoveries and manage
workflows,” said Mike McMullen, president of Agilent’s Chemical Analysis
Group. “Whether in the lab or in the field, Agilent is there, evolving
solutions to meet our customers’ changing needs.”
“These important new technologies provide customers with faster, more
cost-effective methods to make informed and actionable decisions when they’re
needed most: on-location, wherever their work may take them,” added
Debusschere. “We will continue to work closely with customers to develop
additional mobile instruments that help solve their immediate analytical
challenges in the field.”
