"We are collaborating with all major and many smaller analytical instrument manufacturers to support Agilent instruments in their data systems, and to support their instruments in Agilent's data systems. Our aim is to help our mutual customers deliver the highest productivity and lowest total cost of ownership in their labs."

"Thermo Fisher is committed to meeting the full needs of our customers, and that includes strong connectivity to all software and instruments in their laboratories," said Dan Shine, president, chromatography and mass spectrometry, Thermo Fisher. "With agreements such as this, our teams can continue to collaborate toward driving the highest productivity and enhanced user experience."

The instrument control exchange agreement reflects the increasing importance of manufacturer collaboration to achieve interoperability and standardization of multivendor instrument control so that analytical laboratories can increase productivity while minimizing technical and regulatory risks and validation costs.
