production chain, including incoming inspection, new product development, quality control and assurance, and packaging. The company’s mass spectrometer portfolio is used to analyze contaminants and residual pesticides in food. Life Sciences and Applied Markets Products and Applications The company’s products fall into nine main areas of work, such as LC, GC, MS, spectroscopy, software and informatics, lab automation and robotics, automated electrophoresis and microfluidics, vacuum technology and nuclear magnetic resonance systems. LC: A LC or a high performance LC is used to separate molecules of a liquid mixture to determine the quantity and identity of the molecules present. The Agilent LC portfolio is modular in construction and can be configured as analytical and preparative systems. These systems can be stepwise upgraded to automated workflow solutions, such as method development, multi-method/walk-up, high-capacity/high-throughput or multi-dimensional LC and can be extended to application-based analyzers for bio-molecular separations, chiral analysis or size exclusion chromatography. GC: The company provides GC, both laboratory and portable models. The company provides custom or standard analyzers configured for specific chemical analysis applications, such as detailed speciation of a complex hydrocarbon stream, calculation of gas calorific values in the field, or analysis of a new bio-fuel formulation. The company also offers related software, accessories and consumable products for these and other similar instruments. MS: A MS identifies and quantifies chemicals based on a chemical's molecular mass and characteristic patterns of fragment ion masses that result when a molecule is broken apart. LC is commonly used to separate compounds and introduce them to the MS system. The combined use of LC and MS is frequently used both to identify and quantify chemical compounds. MS is an important tool in analyzing small molecules and can also be used to characterize and quantify proteins and other biological entities. The company’s LCMS portfolio includes instruments built around four main analyzer types - single quadrupole, triple quadrupole, time-of-flight and quadrupole time-of-flight. Spectroscopy: Spectroscopy is a technique for analyzing the individual chemical components of substances based on the absorption or emission of electromagnetic radiation of specific wavelengths of light. The company’s spectroscopy instruments include AA spectrometers, microwave plasma-atomic emission spectrometers (MP-AES), ICP-optical emissions spectrometers (OES) (ICP-OES), ICP-mass spectrometers (ICP-MS), fluorescence spectrophotometers, ultraviolet- visible (UV-Vis) spectrophotometers, Fourier Transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrophotometers, near-infrared (NIR) spectrophotometers, Raman spectrometers and sample automation products. The company also offers related software, accessories and consumable products for these and other similar instruments. Software and Informatics: The company provides software for instrument control, data acquisition, data analysis, laboratory content and business process management, and informatics. Its software facilitates the compliant use of instruments in pharmaceutical quality assurance/quality control environments. With OpenLab Laboratory Software Suite, the company has a scalable, open software platform that enables customers to capture, analyze, and share scientific data throughout the lab and across the enterprise. Lab Automation and Robotics: The company offers a suite of workflow solutions to its life science customers with the addition of automated liquid handling and robotics that range from instrumentation to bench-top automation solutions to large, multi-armed robotic systems. These solutions strengthen the company’s offering of automated sample preparation solutions across a range of applications. Automated Electrophoresis and Microfluidics: Automated electrophoresis is a separation technique for bio molecules, such as proteins, peptides and nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) and is used to determine the identity of a molecule by either size or charge. It is used as a QC too
