A new cutting-edge automation solution from Agilent Technologies is poised to revolutionize laboratory workflows and elevate efficiency. Designed to meet the increasing demand for complete automation in inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) workflows, the Advanced Dilution System — ADS 2 — promises heightened productivity, reduced cost of ownership and enhanced overall efficiency within the lab environment.

The Agilent ADS 2 is an intelligent autodilutor designed to optimize laboratory processes. Seamlessly integrating with Agilent autosamplers, ICP-OES, and ICP-MS instruments and software, it offers a fullySource: Agilent Technologies Inc. Source: Agilent Technologies Inc. integrated, single-supplier automated solution.

Leveraging its status as one of the most trusted brands in the analytical instrumentation market, Agilent collaborated closely with a wide range of customers to address key barriers to autodilution adoption. The result is a user-friendly, efficient and robust solution tailored for production environments. Featuring unique flow path technology, the ADS 2 optimizes analysis speed for both diluted and undiluted samples, while utilizing the same software as the instrument ensures consistency and traceability in data handling and reporting.

Keith Bratchford, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Atomic Spectroscopy Division, emphasized the company's commitment to empowering lab productivity without compromising quality or profitability. He stated: “Agilent’s comprehensive automation system establishes us as the exclusive provider capable of meeting the needs of routine food, environmental and pharmaceutical testing laboratories. Furthermore, the ADS 2 will have significant applications in the advanced materials market, particularly in battery research, differentiating us from our competitors.”
