Agilent Technologies has formed an allegiance with the National University of Singapore Environmental Research Institute (NERI), which will leverage the organizations’ key strengths in life sciences and chemical analyses.

"NUS and Agilent already enjoy a long-standing relationship as research partners," said Professor Barry Halliwell, the university's deputy president (Research and Technology). "We are pleased to team up with Agilent once again in our quest to become a leading global centre of interdisciplinary research, education and expertise in the environment, particularly in areas affecting Singapore and Asia. We will continue to actively work in partnership with industry to explore new technologies and generate innovative solutions to address real world environmental challenges."

Under the collaboration, part of NERI's new laboratory will be equipped with Agilent instruments for chemical and bio-analysis and electronic measurement. This facility will provide NUS researchers with instrumentation to conduct studies on water, air, soil, food and biospecimens, leading to applications that will benefit the research community, industry and society at large.

"Agilent is an avid supporter of innovation," said Dr Teng Chai Hock, vice president, South Asia Pacific and Korea, in Agilent's Chemical Analysis Group. "Agilent invests in understanding and developing measurement technologies that advance measurement instrumentation and applications. One way is through collaboration with the world's top universities and research centres on topics of mutual interest — topics where our bio-analytical and electronic measurement technologies pave the way to solving real-life problems such as food safety and environmental monitoring."
