SAO PAULO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced its participation in a special online video feature series, “The Science Behind the FIFA World Cup,” produced by SelectScience. SelectScience is an online publication focused on information for laboratory scientists.
Ahead of this year’s FIFA World Cup, SelectScience traveled to Brazil to talk to leading scientists to learn how in-field and laboratory sciences are helping to protect players and fans during the tournament, and how scientific analysis tools can be used to manage athlete health and improve player performance.
