Agilent Technologies Inc. will be hosting two scientific symposiums in India this summer, both featuring industry speakers, interactive workshops, and Agilent’s latest analytical solutions. The first edition of the Total Agilent Experience, held in Mumbai last year, drew 300 scientists and researchers from across the country.
This year’s symposiums will take place in Ahmedabad, 13th June, and Hyderabad, 20th June. “The Total Agilent Experience offers unparalleled opportunities for scientists and industry leaders to talk about new ways to solve problems and make their laboratories more efficient,” said Bharat Bhardwaj, country manager for Agilent in India.
On display at the two symposiums will be Agilent’s latest chromatography, mass spectrometry, and spectroscopy platforms, including:
• The Agilent Intuvo 9000 GC system, which features click-and-run connections that eliminate ferrules, guard-chip technology that extends column life, and a trim-free column that eliminates retention time shifts due to trimming.
• The Agilent Ultivo Triple Quadrupole LC/MS system, which delivers robust performance, superior uptime, and easier serviceability, in a footprint that is 70% smaller than previous instruments.
• A suite of innovative Raman spectroscopy instruments, acquired last year when Agilent bought Cobalt Light Systems, a UK-based developer of innovative technologies for noninvasive, through-barrier chemical analysis for use in pharmaceutical and public-safety applications. Using the sophisticated, user-friendly technologies offered by these platforms, scientists are now able to work on a wider range of challenging applications with improved performance and ease of use, while also increasing laboratory productivity and economic value.
"We will also feature interactive workshops where participants can discuss their thorniest challenges with Agilent experts and other thought leaders in the food, pharma, and applied chemical industries,” Bhardwaj said.
In addition, Agilent will be hosting a Pharma Regulatory Summit and an Analytical Summit for Applied Markets. In each of these summits, industry experts will share their insights on the emerging trends that are driving adoption of newtechnologies.
