Agilent Technologies Introduces New Autosampler for 1290 Infinity II LC System

Module Shortens Injection Cycles, Enlarges Sample Capacity, Lowers Carryover

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 22, 2015

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced a second automatic sampler for its ultra-high-performance 1290 Infinity II LC system. The new 1290 Infinity II Vialsampler shortens injection cycles, lowers carryover and enlarges sample capacity-at a pressure range of up to 1300 bar.

The new module is being shown for the first time at HPLC 2015, an international symposium on high-performance liquid phase separations and related techniques, in Geneva, Switzerland, this week.

Highly integrated, the new module combines autosampler features with options to integrate both a column oven and a sample cooler. It offers analytical laboratories a cost-effective way to experience the advantages of ultra-high-pressure liquid chromatography.

"With this new offering, labs can more easily move from HPLC to UHPLC methods for higher resolution and faster separations," said Dr. Stefan Schuette, Agilent vice president and general manager of the company's liquid chromatography products group. "This new module enables them to enter the highest-performance class at an affordable price."

Agilent is the world's largest provider of LC equipment, and the 1290 Infinity II LC, introduced last year, is the company's top-of-the-line system.
