Real stories from the lab:

Cost savings
Customer challenge: A large food manufacturer was spending a large proportion of its budget each month to send out samples to test for various compounds in an egg matrix.

Insight: An Agilent team helped them initially install an LC/MS system and develop methods to do this testing themselves. Ultimately, they developed methods to separate approximately 1,000 compounds.

Outcome: Improved lab economics by new capability.

Pay it forward
Customer challenge: An analyst at a food testing lab was faced with a new challenge: detecting PAHs in vegetable and fish oils. He had heard of the Agilent Enhanced Matrix Removal-Lipid kit, but wasn’t sure how to use it. He reached out to the online Agilent Community for help.

Insight: An Agilent sample preparation expert helped him modify his method to use EMR-Lipids.

Outcome: The analyst was able to improve his method and get better analytical results. He presented his findings and shared them at the Agilent Community, so others could benefit.

It takes a team
Customer challenge: A food testing lab was having difficulties generating revenue on its application. The time needed to complete the process was too costly.

Insight: The CrossLab chemistries applications team used Agilent Enhanced Matrix Removal to develop a new method.

Outcome: Analytical time was cut in half. The contract lab delivered its customer’s work and good economics for their business.
