Agilent Technologies Introduces Cutting-Edge Accessories to Support LC Workflows

Improved Parts Help Deliver Optimal Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 17, 2014

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced four innovative products to support liquid chromatography workflows. These time-saving tools are designed to address key customer pain points in the chromatographic workflow and ensure that customers continually receive optimal productivity from their LC systems. The new accessories include the following:

  • A-Line Quick Connect fittings. These are the only true finger-tight UHPLC fittings that are stable to 1300 bar. The easy-to-use lever enables every chromatographer to get a consistent, leak-free connection for optimal results.
  • A-Line Quick Turn fittings. These fittings provide consistent, stable connections to 600 bar with a turn of the fingers, and UHPLC connections to 1300 bar with a quick turn of the wrench.
  • A-Line Stay Safe caps. As easy to install as typical solvent bottle caps, Stay Safe caps prevent organic solvents from escaping into the air-and they track their own effectiveness with an innovative time strip on the filter.
  • A-Line LC Flex bench. This new bench, available in November, is designed to save space in the laboratory and solve instrument mobility challenges, making the LC easy to raise, lower, reconfigure or move next to the mass spectrometer.

"Agilent A-Line products leverage our significant engineering expertise and resources to provide superior efficiency and ease of use," said Michael Feeney, general manager of Agilent's Supplies and GC Columns Division. "They save chromatographers time and rework while supporting excellent chromatographic results."
