Agilent Technologies, Inc., a measurement company, provides core bio-analytical and electronic measurement solutions to the life sciences, diagnostics and genomics, chemical analysis, communications, and electronics industries. Life Sciences and Diagnostics Business The Life Sciences and Diagnostics Business provides products that include reagents, instruments, software, consumables, and services that enable customers to identify, quantify and analyze the physical and biological properties of substances and products, as well as enable customers in the clinical and life sciences research areas to interrogate samples at the molecular level. Its main product categories include liquid chromatography (LC) systems, columns and components; liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LCMS) systems; laboratory software and informatics systems; laboratory automation and robotic systems; dissolution testing; nucleic acid solutions; Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), and X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) systems; services and support for the aforementioned products; immunohistochemistry (IHC); In Situ Hybridization (ISH); Hematoxylin and Eosin (H&E) staining; special staining, DNA mutation detection; genotyping; gene copy number determination; identification of gene rearrangements; DNA methylation profiling; gene expression profiling; next generation sequencing (NGS) target enrichment; and automated gel electrophoresis-based sample analysis systems. The company also collaborates with pharmaceutical companies to develop new potential pharmacodiagnostics, also called companion diagnostics, with the potential of identifying patients most likely to benefit from a specific targeted therapy. Life Sciences and Diagnostics Markets The company’s life sciences and diagnostics business focuses primarily on the following markets: pharmaceutical, biotechnology, contract research organizations (CRO), and contract manufacturing organizations (CMO); life science research; and diagnostics and clinical. The Pharma, Biotech, CRO and CMO Market: This market consists of for-profit companies who participate across the pharmaceutical value chain in the areas of therapeutic research, discovery and development, clinical trials, manufacturing and quality assurance and quality control. One sub-segment of this market is core and emerging pharmaceutical companies (pharma). A second sub-segment includes biotechnology companies (biotech), CROs and CMOs. The Life Science Research Market: This market consists primarily of ‘not-for-profit’ organizations and includes academic institutions, large government institutes, and privately funded organizations. The Diagnostics and Clinical Market: A significant part of the company’s clinical diagnostic customers are in pathology labs throughout the world. Its automated pathology tissue staining platforms and solutions are used by the large labs located in hospitals, medical centers, and reference labs. Life Sciences and Diagnostics Measurement Products and Applications The company’s products fall into 12 main areas of work: liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry, software and informatics, lab automation and robotics, automated electrophoresis, NMR systems, life sciences consumables and services, pathology products, specific proteins and flow reagents, target enrichment, cytogenetic research solutions and microarrays, and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) & Quantitative PCR (qPCR) instrumentation and molecular biology reagents. Its main product and applications include the following technologies: Liquid Chromatography A liquid chromatograph or a high performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) is used to separate molecules of a liquid mixture to determine the quantity and identity of the molecules present. Mass Spectrometry: A mass spectrometer 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. The company’s LCMS portfolio includes instruments built around four main analyzer types - single quadrupole, triple quadrupole, time-of-flight (TOF) and quadrupole time-of-flight (QTOF). Software
