Agilent Technologies’ Announces Application Kits for Pesticides and Toxicology Analysis
Product News Jun 03, 2009
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the availability of pesticides and toxicology application kits to improve workflow and productivity in food, environmental and forensic markets.
During the past four decades Agilent has taken an active role in developing methods that have evolved into global industry standards. More than 60 quick-start application kits bring this knowledge into labs, improving workflows and accelerating the implementation of new technology with minimal disruption to current laboratory operations.
“Instruments alone don’t solve business problems,” said Denise Ibens, solutions business development manager, Agilent. “We have designed these pesticides and toxicology kits to specifically cut the costs of implementing new technologies, increase confidence in initial results and reduce the time to technical mastery.”
The new application kits include the latest techniques to improve productivity in the laboratory such as GC Capillary Flow Technology, Deconvolution reporting and large GCMS and LCMS screening databases to speed up data review and analysis.
The application kits include a method of analysis, the analytical column and a documentation pack with a quick-start guide. Some application kits include a free sample preparation pack, advanced video tools to learn additional system features and application verification with a representative checkout standard.
The kits are available for GC, LC, GC/MS and LC/MS applications in food, environmental, forensics and petrochemical analysis. Additionally, the Agilent GC and GCMS kits are preconfigured in manufacturing and the applications are pretested to save days or even weeks of typical start-up time and effort in the lab.
Agilent application kits are focused on the method, not the hardware and software. Application-focused training tools include a video and user’s guide to support out-of-the-box method operation. An application checkout standard reduces time required to generate test mixtures and decreases the possibility of errors.
