Agi­lent to ex­pand man­u­fac­tur­ing and re­search in Sin­ga­pore

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - Supplier News -

Agi­lent Tech­nolo­gies will in­crease its ad­vanced man­u­fac­tur­ing and ap­plied re­search and devel­op­ment ca­pa­bil­i­ties in Sin­ga­pore with in­vest­ments and busi­ness ex­pen­di­tures of S$85 mil­lion over the next five years. These in­vest­ments and ex­pen­di­tures will en­able the Sin­ga­pore fa­cil­ity to of­fer com­plete end-to-end man­u­fac­tur­ing, test, and sup­ply chain man­age­ment, equipped with state-of-the-art au­to­mated sys­tems.

Agi­lent will add 30,000 square feet within its ex­ist­ing fa­cil­ity and cre­ate ap­prox­i­mately 100 new jobs in R&D, ad­vanced man­u­fac­tur­ing, ser­vice and sales over the next five years. The expansion will lever­age ad­vanced man­u­fac­tur­ing sys­tems and au­to­mated pro­duc­tion tech­nolo­gies to sup­port the pro­duc­tion of a broader range of high-end an­a­lyt­i­cal in­stru­ments, es­pe­cially the mass-spec prod­ucts.

The re­cently launched break­through mass spec­trom­e­try in­stru­ment, Ul­tivo, is a great ex­am­ple of a prod­uct de­signed in col­lab­o­ra­tion by engi­neers in the US and Sin­ga­pore that will be man­u­fac­tured in Sin­ga­pore.

Agi­lent moved to its Yishun fa­cil­ity in 2002 and es­tab­lished its LC/MS fa­cil­ity in 2010. Today, the Sin­ga­pore fa­cil­ity also pro­duces other Agi­lent in­stru­ments, as well as lab-au­to­ma­tion prod­ucts. It is home to Agi­lent Univer­sity that of­fers cus­tomers and em­ploy­ees more than 200 tech­nol­ogy cour­ses on tech­niques in mass spec­troscopy, gas chro­matog­ra­phy and liq­uid chro­matog­ra­phy.
