Agilent Technologies has opened its Spectroscopy Technology Innovation Center in Mulgrave, Australia. The company has invested $25 million in research and testing laboratories, as well as customer demo and training facilities.
Spectroscopy instruments such as Agilent’s atomic absorption spectrometer are critical measurement tools in a variety of applications in the food, environmental and pharmaceutical markets, measuring for quality and containments. The facility, located within the Monash Technology Precinct, provides communications technology to facilitate collaboration between Agilent divisions, research partners and customers globally.
“The Spectroscopy Technology Innovation Center is Agilent’s next big leap in developing world-leading spectroscopy products,” said Mike McMullen, president of Agilent’s Chemical Analysis Group. “The open-plan areas for project teams have been designed to foster interaction and to help improve customer and field linkages. Most importantly, our time-to-market for new products will be improved as we pursue our goal of clear leadership in our chosen markets.”
