Agilent Opens Spectroscopy Technology Innovation Center
News Sep 02, 2013
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the opening of its Spectroscopy Technology Innovation Center in Mulgrave, Australia.
The $25 million center houses cutting-edge research and testing laboratories as well as customer demo and training facilities.
“The Spectroscopy Technology Innovation Center is Agilent’s next big leap in developing world-leading spectroscopy products,” said Mike McMullen, president of Agilent’s Chemical Analysis Group.
McMullen continued, “The open-plan areas for project teams have been designed to foster interaction and to help improve customer and field linkages. Most importantly, our time-to-market for new products will be improved as we pursue our goal of clear leadership in our chosen markets.”
Used by laboratories around the world, spectroscopy instruments such as Agilent’s industry-leading atomic absorption spectrometer are critical measurement tools in a variety of applications.
They play key roles in the food, environmental and pharmaceutical markets, measuring for quality and containments.
The facility, located within the Monash Technology Precinct, provides advanced communications technology to facilitate collaboration between Agilent divisions, key research partners and customers across the globe.
A key design concept of the Spectroscopy Technology Innovation Center is that it fosters integration and collaboration and celebrates the division’s history, culture and successes.
Working spaces provide the flexibility to accommodate changes in science and project types, while project hubs are designed to be the nerve center-helping to build high-performance teams of the future.
Compact Chemical Sensor Can Detect Substances from Over 100 Feet AwayNews
A chemical sensor prototype developed at the University of Michigan will be able to detect "single-fingerprint quantities" of substances from a distance of more than 100 feet away, and its developers are working to shrink it to the size of a shoe box. The development offers great potential for medical and law enforcement purposes.READ MORE
