Agilent Technologies (California, USA) has announced that it will support the campaign by the College of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley (California, USA) to redesign and rebuild its chemistry and chemical engineering laboratories.

The project called “Chemical Science Laboratories for the 21st Century is now under construction. The laboratories will be fitted with Agilent instrumentation purchased as part of a multimillion-dollar initiative to revamp the facility that had not been upgraded for nearly 50 years.

"This redevelopment campaign integrates modern laboratory infrastructure with a complete rethinking of our curriculum and methods for delivering instruction," said Professor Richard A. Mathies, dean of UC Berkeley's College of Chemistry. "We set out to create a facility that will enhance learning for all our undergrads — not just the chemistry and science majors — and empower a new generation of scientists and industry leaders. These new instruments make up the foundation of our new instructional core facility, which will help facilitate interactive learning and promote the latest analytical measurement practices and processes for generations to come."

"We are extraordinarily pleased to join forces with UC Berkeley in educating and inspiring a new generation of students and future scientists," said Jim Lynch, Agilent's director of academic programmes for the Americas. "We will continue to provide ongoing support and collaborate with Dean Mathies and his team as they fortify UCB's prominence among academic laboratories worldwide."
