Founded in 2008, Agilent (formerly Cobalt Light Systems) develops products and technologies for non-invasive, through-barrier chemical analysis for hazmat emergency response, and is the new global center for Agilent’s Raman spectroscopy business. Instruments can rapidly and accurately identify materials hidden inside objects or through opaque barriers such as plastic, colored glass, paper and skin. They can also measure concentrations of materials in mixtures with a high degree of accuracy, making them ideal for research purposes. Agilent products offer a wide and varied range of applications in threatening situations including:
- Handheld detection of hazardous chemicals and explosives
- Airport security screening of liquids, aerosols and gels
- Non-invasive medical analyses i.e., screening for diseases that include osteoporosis and breast cancer
On the front lines, hazardous chemical identification is crucial. Agilent’s Raman spectrometry portfolio includes instruments, technologies, and accessories that enable the user to scan through-barriers which enables rapid detection and identification of explosives, narcotics, and hazardous materials through sealed, opaque containers. The hazards remain contained and evidence is preserved, increasing the safety for first responders and throughput quality control.
Together, Federal Resources and Agilent work to equip those on the front lines with the best Raman spectrometry equipment to complete their mission safely, quickly, and effectively.
