Agilent Receives 2018 IBO Industrial Design Gold Award for the Ultivo Triple Quadrupole LC/MS System


Award Received for Excellence in Industrial Design

Technologies Inc.
(NYSE:A) announced today that it has received the
2018 IBO Industrial Design Gold Award for the Ultivo Triple Quadrupole
LC/MS System from Instrument
Business Outlook (IBO)
. The award recognizes excellence in the
industrial design of an analytical instrument, and how industrial design
can improve a product's functionality and the end user's experience.

"The Ultivo triple quadrupole MS system is a major leap forward in
instrument size reduction and, consequently, utility. Blending form and
function, the system maintains the performance capabilities of a
standard triple quadrupole MS system," said Tanya Samazan, managing
editor, at IBO.

"We are honored to receive this award," said Monty Benefiel, Agilent
vice president and general manager of the company's Mass Spectrometry
Division. "Ultivo is truly a transformative approach in LC/TQ,
incorporating product innovations that provide our customers new value
and competitive advantage both economically and environmentally."

Ultivo is 70% smaller than previous instruments, and the optional
stackable configuration, incorporating the MS into the LC stack, saves
additional lab space. Ultivo's hardware and software innovations are
designed to deliver even better business results for customers.
Innovations include greater ion transmission efficiency leading to
optimized sensitivity; and improved, intelligent diagnostics that use
intuitive readbacks to quickly identify issues, ensuring optimum uptime.
Furthermore, Ultivo's new VacShield vacuum provides vent-less ion
injector exchange capabilities that reduce wear and tear and facilitate
rapid front-end maintenance.
