Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced that its Cary 7000 Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer has been named a 2014 R&D 100 Award winner. These prestigious awards recognize the 100 most technologically significant products introduced into the marketplace over the past year. “The revolutionary Cary 7000 system gives scientists a turnkey solution for research, development and quality assurance in materials analysis for thin films, coatings, optics, solar and glass,” said Philip Binns, Agilent vice president for spectroscopy products. “The fast, automated and flexible sampling of the Cary 7000, combined with its 10 Abs range, enables scientists and engineers to generate the highest-quality results even under the most difficult analysis conditions.” The Cary 7000 provides researchers with the highest quality and performance of any UV-Vis-NIR system available today. It enables manufacturers to reduce costs through faster time-to-market, more rigorous QA/QC and higher-quality finished goods. Product features include complete sample characterization, lower cost-per-analysis and improved data quality for advanced materials applications. The R&D 100 Awards have long been a benchmark of excellence for industry sectors as diverse as telecommunications, high-energy physics, software, manufacturing and biotechnology. Winners are selected by an independent judging panel and the editors of R&D Magazine.
