Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced that it will collaborate with the Nanyang Technological University Singapore’s (NTU Singapore’s) Nanyang Environment Water Research Institute (NEWRI) to develop novel approaches to testing and monitoring the region’s water supply.
Under a memorandum of understanding, the two organizations have agreed to address persistent and emerging contaminants in water.
While the research will be conducted in Singapore, Agilent and NEWRI expect their collaboration to have far-reaching benefits, not only in Southeast Asia but around the world, in regard to water quality monitoring and availability.
“We are pleased that, with this agreement, our shared vision and combined resources will be brought to bear on such a critical challenge,” said Nino Totino, Agilent vice president and general manager of Laboratory Solution Sales in the region. “We look forward to collaborating with NEWRI and Professor Shane Snyder, whose groundbreaking and influential research in water analysis is globally recognized, in addition to his receipt of an Agilent Thought Leader Award.”
