Agilent Technologies Inc. and the University of Vermont (UVM) in the US have announced the establishment of the Agilent Laboratory for Chemical Analysis (ALCA). The facility will be a hub for advanced instrumentation that will allow students, institutional colleagues, industrial partners, and regional high-tech startups to study the composition and structure of chemical samples.
It is intended as a shared educational and research space that will play a central role in the education and training of undergraduate and graduate students at UVM, while also serving as a valuable technology resource to local and regional businesses.
The fast pace of technological advancement can be challenging for universities and other educational and research facilities to stay current with the latest technology and training. The suite of Agilent instrumentation housed in the ALCA facility, backed by Agilent application expertise, will advance long-term technical and scientific goals in the state of Vermont and support economic and technological sustainability throughout the region.
