Agilent Technologies Launches New Atomic Spectroscopy Platform


Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) unveiled a fresh addition to its lineup of inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometers. According to the company, the Agilent 5110 ICP-OES would enable scientists to perform faster, more precise ICP-OES analysis than ever before in food, environmental and pharmaceutical testing apart from mining and industrial applications.

Agilent said the new system was built on its breakthrough 5100 ICP-OES that captured axial and radial views of plasma in a single measurement. The company said it allowed laboratories to use half as much argon in the process, thus saving both time, as well as money. The company added that the new system was also a dual-view system.

The company's VP of Spectroscopy products, Philip Binns, said, "The Agilent 5100 revolutionized the ICP-OES market, delivering significant value in terms of cost of ownership, performance, and ease of use. The new Agilent 5110 extends that revolution with more cutting-edge innovations."

Binns continued, "With the introduction of the 5110 ICP-OES we continue to lead the way in elemental analysis innovation. Our atomic spectroscopy portfolio offers the most diverse application coverage for AA, ICP-OES, and ICP-MS, while our unique MP-AES and ICP-QQQ technologies help customers redefine the way they work."

Shares of the company traded 1.68 percent lower on Tuesday.
