In the Environment, Safety Matters

Without compromising data quality and spectral resolution, our analytical and data mining tools provide speed to results, reducing the potential for false negatives. What’s more, our LC and GC/Q-TOF systems give you the full picture of the compounds present in your samples.

Exposure to perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), pharmaceuticals, and other emerging contaminants in the environment presents significant risks to the global community. These risks are driving research to characterize the scope of contamination and identify the origin of pollutants.

Monitoring trace levels of regulated and emerging contaminants—including their degradation products and other unknowns—requires a finely tuned workflow and high system sensitivity. Agilent provides simple, yet powerful, workflow solutions to help you achieve successful results and protect the environment.

Agilent MassHunter software provides powerful, yet simple, data analysis. Choose specific modules for instrument control and data acquisition, qualitative identification of unknowns, and quantitation of target compounds.

Agilent Mass Profiler Professional (MPP) software is a powerful chemometrics platform with extensive statistical and visualization tools. Automated Sample Class Prediction uses previously classified groups to revolutionize MS-based qualitative analysis of unknown samples. The software also uses R and Python scripts to extend and customize statistical analysis and visualization capabilities. In addition, MPP integrates with GeneSpring GX, allowing multi-omics data integration—correlating pathways between metabolomics, proteomics, and genomics data in one project. So you can perform truly integrated biological studies.

Accurate-Mass Personal Compound Databases and Libraries help you produce consistent results. They are developed for your Agilent system, and include metadata and spectra collected under various ionization modes.

Sample prep can be done using Agilent’s portfolio of solid phase extraction products.

Agilent AssayMAP Bravo automation for cell analysis workflows, with precision Flow Control, can be used to migrate complex sample prep workflows onto one platform.

The Agilent fraction collection portfolio delivers automated, precise, and reliable collection of separated compounds, whether you are performing prep LC, HPLC, or UHPLC purification.

Agilent cell analysis measures cellular functions—including metabolism—that are affected by exposure to environmental toxins.

Sample fractions that interfere with cellular activity could indicate the presence of a harmful contaminant, and can be assessed further using chemical analysis instruments.

Omics profiling tools: Agilent CGH microarrays are widely recognized as the industry standard for genome-wide chromosomal analysis. The SureScan Microarray Scanner is a laser-induced fluorescence scanner that offers outstanding sensitivity and resolution, delivering flexibility to analyze genomics and cytogenetics microarrays. Agilent GeneSpring software allows you to quickly and reliably identify targets of interest that are both statistically and biologically meaningful.
