SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today, announced that it received three awards at the Annual Conference of China Scientific Instruments (ACCSI 2017) in Nanjing, China.
Agilent received the following awards: Green Product of the Year, Most Popular Scientific Instrument, and Most Influential Foreign Manufacturer.
This year’s ACCSI conference brought together leaders from diverse industries to discuss topics that ranged from bioscience to food safety and environmental monitoring. Agilent has attended ACCSI since 2008 and has received 28 awards to date.
The innovative Agilent Intuvo 9000 Gas Chromatograph (GC) System was selected as the Green Product of the Year. Designed together with customers, for customers, this transformational gas chromatograph makes complex technology easy to use. Click-and-run connections eliminate ferrules, guard-chip technology extends column life, and the trim-free column reduces retention time shifts due to column trimming maintenance.
“We are pleased to receive the Green Product of the Year Award from the 2017 ACCSI conference,” said Shanya Kane, Agilent global vice president and general manager of Gas Chromatography. “The basis for this award corroborates the customer feedback we are receiving from labs across the globe regarding Intuvo’s contributions to laboratory throughput, space, and power efficiencies, as well as the designed-in simplicity of the user interface and operation.”
The Agilent 5977B GC/MS System won the award for Most Popular Scientific Instrument. This single quadrupole GC/MS system features a high-efficiency ion source, which maximizes the number of ions that are created and transferred out of the source body and into the quadrupole analyzer, resulting in 10 times greater sensitivity and detection limits as low as 1.5 fg IDL.
Additionally, for the second year in a row, Agilent was recognized at ACCSI as the Most Influential Foreign Manufacturer.
“We have made significant investments to provide innovative new offerings to the China market. We are driven to further improve our customers’ experiences, so we are proud that our efforts are being recognized by external agencies,“ said Mike McMullen, Agilent president, and CEO.
