Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced today an extension to its digital lab capabilities with Agilent CrossLab Asset Monitoring, an advanced service for laboratories seeking increased visibility and control over operations.
Today organizations struggle optimizing laboratory operation and asset management.
