Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that it will showcase a range of new and innovative technology solutions at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) Conference being held June 3 through June 8 in Indianapolis, Indiana. New instruments, software, and services build on Agilent's leadership in mass spectrometry and 50-year heritage in analytical technology.
"ASMS is a highlight for Agilent, and an excellent opportunity to showcase our continued dedication to technological innovation," said Monty Benefiel, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Mass Spectrometry Division. "Our customer events at ASMS are designed to demonstrate that we are always striving to meet and exceed expectations, foster productivity, help our customers succeed, and endeavor to make the world we live in a better, safer place."
Agilent will host a variety of events including customer symposiums, scientific seminars, and breakfast meetings. The keynote speaker at Agilent's Innovation Symposium customer event will be distinguished scientist Kevin Bateman, Ph.D., from Merck Research Labs who will present his work using mass spectrometry in biotherapeutic discovery and development. Dr. Bateman's keynote will be followed by three parallel sessions from Agilent users in the areas of biological research, pharma and biopharma, and food and environmental segments.
Agilent will showcase new and existing products across its portfolio of ICP-MS, LC/MS, and GC/MS instruments and supplies. The InfinityLab Series LC/MSD single quadrupole LC/MS will debut at the conference. Its stackable design saves bench space without compromising performance and, when coupled with OpenLAB CDS, enables customers in QC environments to meet rigorous compliance standards. The new LC/MSD systems also support Cerno Bioscience's MassWorks which facilitates increased mass accuracy by up to 100x and is a powerful, easy-to-use tool for unknown elemental composition determination of separated compounds in pharmaceutical, chemical, consumer product, food safety and organic synthesis laboratories.
Also on show at ASMS will be a full workflow solution for biopharma featuring the recently released AdvanceBio 6545XT LC/Q-TOF LC/MS with BioConfirm B.09, the AdvanceBio Peptide Plus LC column for peptide separations, and new applications in AssayMAP automated sample prep. Exciting additional announcements regarding new LC/MS and GC/MS products and solutions will also be made during the conference.
ASMS attendees are invited to visit Agilent's Exhibition Booth 600 at the Indianapolis Convention Center and to spend time at the Agilent Hospitality Suite at the JW Marriott, Grand Ballroom 6, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening from 8:00-10:30 p.m.
