Homeland security

Agilent’s analytical instruments are used to identify the chemicals involved in bio-chemical accidents and criminal acts. The ability to quickly determine the scope and nature of an incident helps emergency workers contain and control contamination from dangerous substances. Detecting, identifying and confirming organic and inorganic compounds have been a core competency of Agilent for more than 35 years.

Today, the New York City Police Department uses a mobile lab equipped with Agilent instruments to detect dangerous chemical and biological agents in air, water, soil or food supplies during emergencies.

One technology for detecting biological agents relies on DNA-based measurements using the Agilent 2100 bioanalyzer and lab-on-a-chip technology. The Agilent 2100 bioanalyzer provides rapid qualitative and quantitative information on DNA in biological samples. Agilent is also working with partners to provide screening and confirmatory detection systems for infectious or contagious diseases such as anthrax, smallpox and plague.
