Agilent's LC/MS Purification System a Winner in Analytical Scientist Innovation Awards
News Feb 22, 2014
Agilent Technologies Inc. has 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 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 capabilities."
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.

Stable Beta-Amyloid Dimers Identified in Alzheimer’s BrainsNews
A recent study exploited state-of-the-art mass spectrometry to provide the first direct evidence of beta-amyloid dimers in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and points to the potential of these molecules as biomarkers. Beta-amyloid dimers may be the smallest pathological species that trigger Alzheimer’s disease.
