Agilent Showcases Mass Spec Solutions at ASMS 2019

Sponsored by Businesswire

Technologies Inc.
(NYSE: A) announced today cutting-edge lab
technology solutions on show at the American Society for Mass
Spectrometry Conference
which is being held June 2 through June 6 in Atlanta, Georgia. With
powerful solutions for mass spectrometry labs, Agilent continues to
maintain its position as a leader in the mass spectrometry market.

“Our 50-year heritage in analytical technology and deep customer
insights enable us to continue to drive meaningful change that helps our
customers advance their science,” said Monty Benefiel, vice president,
and general manager of Agilent’s Mass Spectrometry Division. “Our goal
is to make sure they not only succeed today but are ready for the
challenges of tomorrow.”

The new Agilent products, which will be highlighted at ASMS, have been
launched across the company’s portfolio of LC/MS and GC/MS instruments.
The Agilent
6546 LC/Q-TOF System
provides researchers the ability to acquire
high-resolution data across an unprecedented dynamic range. This
innovative instrument includes Q-RAI (Quadrupole-Resolved All Ions), a
data-independent acquisition mode that reduces the complexity of MS/MS
spectra while maximizing the accuracy and quality of the data acquired.
An updated MassHunter
Software Suite
complements the 6546 system.

Also on show: the new Agilent
6495C Triple Quadrupole LC/MS System
, which provides
industry-leading precision in complex matrices, and the new Agilent
Bravo Metabolomics Sample Prep Platform
, the perfect partner for
Agilent mass spectrometers, that provides consistent and accurate
preparation of human plasma samples for metabolomics analysis.

In addition, the Agilent
8890 Gas Chromatograph (GC) System
will be on display. The 8890 GC
and the 8860
both launched in February. These two new GCs, built on a
next-generation electronic architecture platform, incorporate innovative
and intelligent ‘self-aware’ predictive technology, expanding Agilent’s
suite of smart-connected GC instruments.

Announcements regarding further LC/MS products and solutions launching
at ASMS will be made during the conference.

“These new products will enable researchers to get the answers they need
in less time—and increase the confidence they have in their results,”
added Benefiel.

Agilent will hold several events at ASMS. The Agilent Innovation
Symposium customer event is being held Saturday, June 1, from 5–9:30
p.m. at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel. Speakers include renowned
scientists Dr. Nicola Zamboni from the Institute of Molecular Systems
Biology, ETH Zurich; Jon Sobus, Ph.D., a physical scientist at the US
Environmental Protection Agency; and Maureen Kachman, Ph.D., managing
director at the Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource
Core at the University of Michigan.

ASMS attendees are also invited to visit Agilent’s Exhibition Booth No.
400 at the Georgia Convention Center, and to spend time at the Agilent
hospitality suite at the Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center, Grand
Ballroom E, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings from 8–10:30 p.m.
