Agilent Technologies Announces Major University Client for Informatics Software
OpenLAB Software Suite Enhances Wide-Ranging Collaborations
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that Tufts University has adopted its OpenLAB software suite for enterprise data acquisition, management and sharing among researchers on the university's three Massachusetts campuses.
Agilent OpenLAB software allows principal investigators (PIs) to make data available to the public upon request while protecting the data at the same time. It also allows PIs to carry out 'best practice' data management plans.
Professor Albert Robbat, a member of the evaluation and implementation team, expects OpenLAB to comply with mandates specified by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and other U.S. federal agencies.
Agilent OpenLAB is a scalable, open-architecture software suite that permits users to easily capture, analyze and share scientific data. The suite consists of three integrated components: a chromatography data system, electronic lab notebook, and enterprise content management.
'OpenLAB is a comprehensive informatics suite that can bring differentiated value to university research and teaching,' said John Sadler, general manager of Agilent's software and informatics business. 'Agilent's ability to offer a total informatics solution distinguishes us from the competition.'
