Fluid Management Systems & Agilent to automate sample prep for food testing workflows

Increased regulatory pressure and demand to deliver trusted results with fast turnaround times are challenges for many environmental and food customers

US-based Fluid Management Systems (FMS) has announced a co-marketing agreement with Agilent Technologies to create and market workflows for the testing and analysis of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), Dioxins, Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and other emerging contaminants in environmental and food matrices. These POPs are chemicals that persist in the environment, bioaccumulate through the food web, and pose a risk of causing adverse effects on human health and the environment.

These workflows will be developed by coupling automated and semi-automated sample extraction devices from FMS with Agilent’s market-leading consumables and sample preparation solutions.

Maryann Shen, Associate Vice President of Marketing, Chemistries Division at Agilent said, “Agilent’s solid phase extraction cartridges coupled with FMS automated extractors will provide our customers with a robust method for automated sample extraction workflow, improving lab efficiency and productivity.”

“This collaboration between FMS and Agilent will enable the creation of streamlined workflows from sample to report through the automation of sample preparation processes such as extraction, cleanup, and concentration with Agilent chemistries and analytical systems,” said Tom Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at FMS.
