Agilent Receives Two Scientists' Choice Awards


Innovative instruments receive top honors from members of SelectScience

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced that two of the company's instruments have received Scientists' Choice awards. The Agilent 8890 GC system won for Best New Separations Product, and the Agilent InfinityLab LC/MSD iQ system won for Best New Spectroscopy Product.

SelectScience, an independent, expert-led scientific review, began the Scientists' Choice Awards in 2007 to enable scientists to voice their opinions on the best laboratory products. Each year, SelectScience invites members to nominate their favorite products in various categories. The awards are based on member votes and recognize the innovation and impact these products have had on the market.

"We are delighted to have received these awards," said Jacob Thaysen, senior vice president, Agilent and President, Life Sciences and Applied Markets Group (LSAG). "We work hard to create innovative solutions to meet the evolving needs of our customers—particularly the need to simplify their workflows, improve productivity, and reap the benefits of greater connectivity. These awards are a recognition of our continued investment in research and development for the future of the laboratory."

Both Agilent systems integrate next-generation intelligence, including diagnostic tools and software that ensure pro-active maintenance for maximum uptime and greater sample throughput.

The award for the 8890 reflects the value chromatographers see in these state-of-the-art smart connected technologies. Combined with the system's flexible configurability, the 8890 is able to meet chromatographic needs today and well into the future.

This is the third award for the InfinityLab LC/MSD iQ system since launching in 2019, a reflection of how the system's ease of use makes LC/MS technology accessible to chromatographers. The system has previously been recognized by The Analytical Scientist and The Medicine Maker 2019 Innovation awards.

Winners were announced at Pittcon 2020, the world's largest annual conference and exposition on laboratory science, in Chicago, Illinois.
