Agilent has announced that two of its scientific instruments have received awards in the 2012 International Forum product design competition.

The 5975T transportable gas chromatography/mass spectrometry system and the 6490 triple quadrupole liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry system were winners in the Industry/Skilled Trades category. The instruments are used for very precise food safety testing, environmental analysis, pharmaceutical research and quality control, energy and disease research.

The design competition has been held since 1953 and this year there were 2923 entries from 48 countries. Entries are judged on a wide range of criteria, including: design quality, finish, choice of materials, degree of innovation, environmental impact, functionality, safety and branding.

Gil Lemke, industrial designer at Agilent, commented, “Our products are made for scientists, not the general public, so it’s particularly gratifying to be recognized by the international design community. Design matters, even in highly technical fields.”
