-Discourses provide platform for scientific communities to explore complete workflow solutions to meet research and lab productivity needs
SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Agilent Technologies (NYSE:A) today announced it will be hosting its 2016 Science and Technology Symposium series in South East Asia. The series is set to bring scientific communities and Agilent experts together in a unique opportunity to discuss the latest solutions to the scientific and business challenges laboratories face today.

Taking place in three countries, the Symposium will focus on food and environmental testing and lab productivity — key issues faced by Agilent customers in the region. For the first time, scientists and researchers will get a one-stop opportunity to explore complete Agilent solutions to all aspects of laboratory challenges — from specific techniques in sample preparation, measurement and analysis to strategies for laboratory cost and efficiency improvement. Other topics to be covered: regulatory requirements and consumer trends in data privacy and staff training.

“Laboratories today are embracing technology to increase productivity and are dealing with very complex analyses while cost pressures accelerate. Increasingly stringent regulations and detection of more substances are also demanding on information management systems. We look forward to meeting with our customers and having solution-driven conversations to address these needs,” said Nino Totino, General Manager of Agilent Laboratory Solutions Sales, South Asia Pacific and Korea.

Participants will get to see the updated and complete suite of Agilent laboratory workflow solutions — from instruments, software and supplies all the way to services, training and education — and have their questions addressed.

Key presentations include:

Case studies on laboratory technology life cycle management, with insights into ensuring laboratory operation continuity.
A demonstration — through a nutrient extraction of soil application — of how the new Agilent 5110 ICP-OES with Advanced Valve System can shorten analysis time without compromising analytical performance, thus enhancing laboratory profitability by minimizing instrument running costs.
A talk on how to achieve cost, time and solvent savings in the monitoring of 16 parent polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the environment using Online Solid Phase Extraction and UHPLC.
Speakers for Malaysia and Thailand include Agilent customers Dr. Kaushik Banerjee, National Fellow and Principal Scientist, ICAR-National Research Centre for Grapes, Pune, India; Associate Professor Dr. Narong Chimpalee of Silapakorn University Faculty of Science, Thailand; Dr. Meraney McCann, Thermal Desorption Product Specialist, Markes International; Sam Mallard from the Australian Superintendence Company; and Agilent experts from South East Asia, Japan and Australia.

The first installment takes place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on the 19th and 20th of July, followed by Bangkok, Thailand on the 22nd and 23rd. The Singapore leg of the Symposium has been slated for October.
