Agilent Announces New Sample-Preparation Product for Food Testing
Product News Aug 14, 2015
Agilent Technologies Inc. has recently introduced a new product to help food-safety labs more accurately test high-fat samples.
The new product, Agilent Bond Elut Enhanced Matrix Removal-Lipid, uses an innovative sorbent technology that gives food-safety labs a better way to address what has been one of their most challenging tasks.
"By preparing samples with our new product, labs will be better able to remove matrix interferences that have made their test results challenging to reproduce—until now," said Helen Stimson, Agilent vice president and general manager of the Chemistries and Supplies Division. "With Agilent Bond Elut EMR-Lipid sample preparation, labs will be able to achieve cleaner sample profiles with significantly improved reliability."
The removal of lipids from samples enables laboratories to dramatically improve data quality, increase confidence in results, and reduce sample re-runs. This translates into higher throughput and lower operating costs.
Stimson noted that cleaner sample profiles also translate into cleaner instruments, which reduces the need for sample-related instrument maintenance and further reduces operating costs.
