SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- July 15, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that the 8800 Triple
Quadrupole ICP-MS has been named an R&D 100 Award winner. These prestigious
awards recognize the 100 most technologically significant products introduced
into the marketplace over the past year.

“The Agilent 8800 Triple Quadrupole ICP-MS is a groundbreaking innovation that
redefines the possibilities of ultra-trace elemental analysis,” said Philip
Binns, Agilent vice president for spectroscopy products. “The 8800 ICP-QQQ has
enjoyed strong adoption in its first year and has defined a new segment in
elemental analysis. We are honored that our spectroscopy division has won this
award for two consecutive years.”

Unlike existing instruments, the Agilent 8800 is the only ICP-MS system with a
tandem mass spectrometer, or MS/MS, configuration. Using a high-performance
quadrupole before and after the collision/reaction cell, the 8800 precisely
controls the ions in the instrument, allowing the user to resolve the most
difficult interferences and obtain the highest sensitivity results of any
ICP-MS.

The Agilent 8800 enables scientists and chemists to solve challenging
analytical problems that have proven difficult for conventional ICP-MS systems
in traditional markets such as semiconductors, environmental and food.
Additionally, the 8800 offers new research capabilities providing scientists
new application possibilities in fields such as life sciences.

The R&D 100 Awards have long been a benchmark of excellence for industry
sectors as diverse as telecommunications, high-energy physics, software,
manufacturing and biotechnology. Winners are selected by an independent
judging panel and the editors of R&D Magazine.

In 2012, the Agilent 4100 Microwave Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectrometer
(MP-AES) won an R&D 100 Award.
