This partnership will enable Metrohm to become a reseller of Agilent’s one- and three-pole mass spectrometers, in addition to ICP-MS and ICP-OES products, software and services.
This agreement strengthens the company’s existing partnership, which dates back to 2019, when a pilot was released that enabled control of Metrohm IC instruments in Agilent’s Open Lab software.
In addition to opening up additional applications in areas such as the environmental analysis and food and beverage markets, the agreement presents opportunities to expand the ion chromatography (IC) capabilities of Metrohm USA and Metrohm Canada.
Commenting on the potential of the partnership, Ed Colihan, President and CEO of Metrohm USA, said: “We are very excited to develop the portfolio of solutions that we can bring to our IC customers in the United States and in Canada. “
“Metrohm’s IC products bring a strong history of innovation, and this partnership allows us to offer complete solutions for coupling IC with mass spectroscopy to expand our application footprint. “
These comprehensive solutions also apply to improving the customer experience by offering both Agilent MS and Metrohm IC products through a single channel, enabling a more streamlined setup, purchase and support experience.
Susharshana Seshadri, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s mass spectrometry division, spoke about the deal, saying, “We are delighted to add Metrohm as a value added reseller.
“We have high standards for the companies we select to handle our mass specifications, as well as the ICP-MS and ICP-OES product lines, and Metrohm does the job perfectly. “
Combined with the detection capability of mass spectrometers and Agilent software, the unique nature of Metrohm IC instruments for MS analysis can allow customers to increase the breadth and detail of their analyzes, in addition to accessing new results.
The technology is also now capable of detecting haloacetic acids in drinking water and determining heavy metal species in food products.
