The 1290 Infinity II LC is an ultrahigh performance liquid chromatography instrument (UHPLC) that has market-leading sample capacity and is designed for the lowest dispersion for the most challenging UHPLC experiments. The 1290 embodies the next generation of UHPLC, with the exceptional reliability and robustness you expect from Agilent, plus breakthrough UHPLC technologies to achieve unmatched separation and detection performance.
The 1290 Infinity II LC offers:
This category evaluates the steps that have been taken to reduce energy, water, and waste at their manufacturing facility. Agilent has implemented various initiatives at the facility where the 1290 Infinity II LC System is manufactured in order to reduce the facility's energy and water consumption. These initiatives, which include rain water harvesting, equipment replacement, and an upgraded, on-site combined heat and power plant, have resulted in energy and water reductions relative to a 2015 baseline.
Agilent has a large photovoltaic system to support and offset electricity from the grid to help produce its products. The average capacity of the system is approximately 250 kWh per year.
Agilent has implemented policies and procedures internally and with its supply chain, following the General Specification for the Environment (GSE), to understand and communicate hazardous chemistries. Further, Agilent's manufacturing facility is ISO 14001 certified and the 1290 Infinity II LC System is EU RoHS compliant.
Agilent's 1290 Infinity II LC System is manufactured in Waldbronn, Germany. Agilent services the US market through its distribution center in Memphis, TN.
Agilent dematerialized the 1260 Infinity II Thermostat (which is used in the 1290 Infinity II LC System) and 1290 Infinity II Multi-Column Compartment. These reductions are relative to the modular components' Infinity I predecessors; the 1260 Infinity II Thermostat reduction is compared to G1330B and 1290 Infinity II Multi-Column Compartment is compared to G1316C.
The corrugated board packaging material for the Agilent 1290 Infinity II System contains over 40% of recycled fiber.
The Agilent 1290 Infinity II LC System consumes approximately 5.3 kWh per day. The system was tested using the system following parameters:
This product does not consume water when it is in use.
The Agilent Value Promise guarantees that the Agilent 1290 Infinity II LC System will last at least 10 years.
The 1290 Infinity II LC System packaging materials includes cardboard, polyethylene, and polypropylene. In the US, the cardboard is readily recyclable; however, the infrastructure and market for recycling polypropylene and polyethylene is not readily available.
Agilent offers an active take-back / refurbishment program for the 1290 Infinity II LC System in EU and US.
