Agilent Life Sciences and Chemical Analysis is a leading global provider of instrumentation, supplies, software and services to the life science and chemical analysis markets. With revenue of $1.42 billion, the group accounted for approximately 28% of Agilent's $5.1 billion of total revenue in 2006. Our 4,000 employees serve more than 25,000 customers in more than 100 countries.

Our measure is your success.

Agilent provides the world’s most complete, most reliable laboratory productivity solutions, optimized for your applications and workflows. Through a combination of industry-leading instruments, accessible scientific expertise, easy-to-use software and a full range of global support services, we are committed to delivering better results, faster than ever.

As the leading global provider of chemical analysis tools, Agilent offers solutions for a number of critical markets, including: environmental, food safety, forensic analysis and hydrocarbon processing. We also support homeland security with instruments and expertise in biochemical detection, as well as drug testing, fuel cell manufacturing and semiconductor QA/QC.

Although the market is seen to be maturing, our chemical analysis business continues to grow, as rapidly industrializing countries such as China and India begin to address important analytical issues such as environmental testing and food safety.


In the environmental analysis market, Agilent tools help to protect the natural environment and human health by enabling scientists to test for contaminants in air, water and soil, such as pesticides, metals and other hazardous toxins and pollutants.

Food safety testing includes the analysis of agricultural products and foods, with a focus on regulatory compliance and enforcement. This rapidly growing market is being driven by the liberalization of global trade, an increasingly stringent regulatory environment and heightened public awareness of food safety issues.

Agilent provides tools for forensic analysis to law enforcement, government, academia and private industry for drug screening, toxicology research and forensic investigation. Since 1972, Agilent has supplied analysis equipment to the labs who do drug testing for the Olympics.

For more than two decades, Agilent has worked with government, military, law enforcement and health agencies in support of homeland security. Our tools enable the detection, identification and confirmation of biological and chemical agents and toxic industrial compounds.

The hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI) includes the petrochemical, fine and specialty chemical, natural gas, industrial gas and fuel cell markets. Agilent is the leading provider of analytical instrumentation to this industry, with the largest installed base of GC and LC customers.

In Life Sciences, Agilent is helping investigators advance basic research, unlock the genetic causes of disease and accelerate the discovery and development of new drugs. Agilent’s life sciences business addresses the needs of academic, institutional and pharmaceutical scientists in five key areas:

Genomics researchers require a steady stream of innovative tools to explore the genetic causes of disease. In addition to gene expression studies, Agilent's flexible SurePrint microarray platform powers emerging applications such as aCGH, ChIP-on-chip, microRNA and methylation analysis.

Proteomics encompasses the large-scale study of proteins, including protein identification and characterization. Agilent provides complete LC/MS-based solutions from protein isolation through data analysis, as well as protein LabChips for protein quality assessment.

Metabolomics, a rapidly emerging field of study, is the comparative analysis of metabolites found in sets of similar biological samples. Agilent offers the industry's most complete range of GC/MS and LC/MS solutions for metabolomic investigation, as well as powerful software tools for metabolite identification, quantitation, and statistical analysis.

Bioinformatics enables scientists to bring together disparate sets of biological data to better understand the operation of biological systems. Agilent’s suite of bioinformatics solutions includes the widely-used GeneSpring platform, and spans applications in gene expression, genotyping, aCGH, metabolomics and proteomics.

As a market leader in pharmaceutical analysis, Agilent offers products across the entire pharmaceutical value chain, from basic research to drug manufacturing. Focused mainly on drug discovery and drug development, QA/QC and manufacturing, Agilent provides instrumentation, data systems and compliance services designed to meet the requirements of the GMP/GLP-regulated lab.
