The next evolution of our trusted LC/TQ platform with added sustainability-driven innovations. The 6475 triple quadrupole LC/MS provides enhanced intelligence focused on to diminish downtime while reducing energy consumption, reducing costly and unnecessary maintenance, ultimately lowering cost-of-ownership.
The Singapore facility that manufactures the Agilent 6475 and 6495 triple quadrupole LC/MS systems has implemented measures within the past five years to reduces its energy and water usage. Examples of such initiatives include an LED lighting retrofit which is estimated to save over 775 MWh, a solar photovoltaics project, and installation of low-flow fixtures.
The Singapore facility that manufactures the Agilent 6475 and 6495 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS systems utilizes it's own onsite renewable energy in the form of Photovoltaics.
The Agilent Singapore facility that manufactures the Agilent 6475 and 6495 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS systems has implemented policies and procedures to understand, manage, and communicate on hazardous chemistries throughout the value chain. Suppliers must ensure their raw materials comply with Agilent's General Specification for the Environment (GSE) which screens for hazardous chemistries such as EU REACH SVHCs and Proposition 65 chemicals. Further, the Agilent 6475 and 6495 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS systems are EU RoHS compliant, and the Singapore manufacturing facility is ISO 14001 certified.
The Agilent 6475 and 6495 triple quadrupole LC/MS systems are produced in Singapore. The US market is serviced via Agilent's distribution center in Memphis, Tennessee and the EU/UK market is serviced via Agilent's distribution center in Ketsch, Germany.
The Agilent 6475 and 6495 triple quadrupole LC/MS systems do not currently contain any sources of sustainable content.
The Agilent 6475 and 6495 triple quadrupole LC/MS systems are packaged and shipped using corrugated cardboard cartons and a polyethylene bag. The cardboard components contain 55% recycled content resulting in over 50% sustainable content in the overall packaging system.
The Agilent 6475 and 6495 triple quadrupole LC/MS systems energy use represents the energy consumed while operating the equipment for 8 hours and the energy draw associated with the standby mode for the remaining 16 hours in a 24 hours period.
The Agilent Joshua product family does not consume water during use phase.
While the Agilent Value Promise guarantees that the Agilent 6475 and 6495 triple quadrupole LC/MS systems will last at least 10 years during their use phase, these products have an estimated lifetime of 15-20 years based on previous models on the products.
The Agilent 6475 and 6495 triple quadrupole LC/MS systems are packaged using cardboard and a polyethylene bag. In the US, the cardboard is readily recyclable; while the plastic bag is recyclable, the infrastructure is not available in the majority of the market. In the US, Agilent is enrolled in the How2Recycle program to facilitate the communication of material recycling instructions. In select countries, Agilent participates in the EU/UK Green DOT Package Recycling Program to support the take-back and responsible management of the packaging materials at their end-of-life. In the remaining EU countries, the cardboard is readily recyclable while the plastic bag is recycled, landfilled or incinerated depending on the country and its available infrastructure.
Agilent offers a take-back program for its 6475 and 6495 triple quadrupole LC/MS system customers in US, EU and UK markets.
