TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies’ New Automated LC/MS Purification System a
Winner in Analytical Scientist Innovation Awards
Magazine Names 1260 Infinity Series One of Top 15 Game-Changing Technologies
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- February 20, 2014
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced that the 1260 Infinity
Automated LC/MS Purification System, launched in late December, was one of the
winners in the Analytical Scientist Innovation Awards. The automated solution,
which builds on ultra-high performance liquid chromatography/mass spectrometer
detection, was cited as one of 15 transformative technologies introduced in
2013 for its ability to synthesize pure compounds without tedious method
development or scale-up work.
“The Analytical Scientist Innovation Awards showcase the extraordinary range
and pace of progress in our field, and we extend our congratulations to
everyone involved in the development of these innovations,” said Analytical
Scientist editor Rich Whitworth.
Referencing the system’s optimal performance, efficiency and affordability,
the publication detailed how the 1260 Infinity Automated LC/MS Purification
System enables scientists to rapidly and easily confirm successful synthesis
of target compounds in a matter of minutes, without any calculations, method
translation or “vague guesses” about optimum conditions. Without in-depth
training on preparative chromatography, chemists, biologists or engineers can
finally benefit from state-of-the-art separation efficiency. Specialized
chromatographers can move away from routine purification work to focus on
truly difficult separations.
“We are honored that the 1260 Infinity LC was selected for the Analytical
Scientist Innovation Award,” said Patrick Kaltenbach, vice president of
Agilent’s Liquid Phase Division. “This automated UHPLC/MS solution is a
milestone for our customers looking for thoroughly automated purification
The 1260 Infinity Automated LC/MS Purification System is a scalable,
workflow-focused solution for drug discovery and agrochemical research. Built
on robust 1260 Infinity UHPLC and preparative HPLC modules and proprietary
software algorithms, the system provides superior purification with automated
delay volume calibration, and focused gradients tailored on the fly to
individual target compounds.

The 1260 Infinity was one of two Agilent products to be named among the
Analytical Scientist’s top 15 transformative technologies of 2013. The
company’s GC-MS Inert Flow Path Solutions technology was ranked No. 10.
