Agilent Technologies Inc has announced two new gas chromatography systems and Cary 3500 UV-Vis system for the Indian market.
The new Agilent 8890 and 8860 GC systems extend the company’s industry-leading portfolio of robust analytical instruments. They will incorporate innovative and intelligent ‘self-aware’ predictive technology, expanding their suite of smart-connected GC instruments.
While the Cary 3500 UV-Vis system is an innovative spectrophotometer designed to help life science, pharma and biopharma research communities simplify their analyses, optimize laboratory productivity, and ultimately help bring new therapeutics to market faster.
Unveiling the two products, Mr. Bharat Bhardwaj, India Country Manager, Agilent India, said, “We are very excited with the launch of these products for the Indian market. The new GC systems come with path breaking intelligence to simplify GC operations. While the Agilent Cary 3500 UV-Vis system is a faster, more robust system with a lower cost of ownership. Both of these products will help improve lab efficiency significantly.”
About the 8890 and 8860 Gas Chromatography Systems:
Integrating intuitive color touch interfaces, the 8890 and 8860 GCs are built on a next-generation electronic architecture platform, based on the innovative technologies of the Intuvo 9000 GC, Agilent’s flagship existing GC system. Continuous system monitoring, automated diagnostics and built-in troubleshooting routines will help labs avoid unplanned downtime and increase lab efficiency – both top goals of lab managers today. Remote connectivity through mobile devices such as tablets and laptops, allows operators and managers to securely access instrument status and function while away from the lab.
Agilent also introduced two powerful Blank and Detector Evaluation smart routines on the 8890 and 8860 GC systems, enabling automatic
determination of system readiness. These new predictive functions will also be available for upgrade on Agilent’s Intuvo 9000 GC systems.
The 8860 system is designed to support many core routine applications, while the 8890 system is designed to support ultimate flexibility and expandability, supporting customer needs both today and tomorrow. The 8890 is not only intelligent but highly configurable, able to extend its capacity as lab needs grow – future-proofing the customer’s investment. While the 8860 is the GC for core routine applications, it is anything but routine, given its intelligent features.
About Cary 3500 UV-Vis system:
The Agilent Cary 3500 provides a critical tool that allows laboratories to do this more quickly and accurately than is currently possible. Drawing upon from our 70 years of insight and customer collaborations, Agilent’s spectroscopy unit has created a faster, more robust system that comes with a lower cost of ownership.
The Cary 3500 represents the first significant advancement in UV-Vis architecture in decades. The new system enables laboratories to make substantial gains in efficiency as it can run multiple experiments simultaneously, allowing labs to obtain more results in the same amount of time—and it also extends the opportunity to design experiments in ways that have not been possible before.
