Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the "Agilent 6000 Series LC/MS Lab Makeover" sweepstakes. Participants will have a chance to win a complete Agilent liquid chromatograph/mass spectrometer (LC/MS) system for their institution.

The winner will be given the choice of either the Agilent 6410 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS or the Agilent 6510 Quadrupole Time-of-Flight (Q-TOF) LC/MS from the company's new 6000 Series portfolio of LC/MS systems. The LC portion of the prize is the new Agilent 1200 Series system.

The Agilent 6410 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS provides femtogram level sensitivity -- comparable to the most expensive instruments in this class -- along with Agilent reliability. It is used primarily for environmental, food safety, forensic and pharmaceutical applications.

The Agilent 6510 Q-TOF LC/MS provides superior analytical performance compared with the most expensive high-performance Q-TOF instruments. It simultaneously offers attomole sensitivity, routine mass accuracy better than 3 ppm, and 3.5 orders of magnitude in-spectra dynamic range. It enables fast data acquisition at 20 spectra/second or 1 MS and 5 MS/MS per second in data-dependent mode. The Agilent Q-TOF is expected to become the new instrument of choice for proteomics laboratories.

The competition will open March 15, 2006, and runs through July 31, 2006. To register or to see official contest rules, go to Details also will be available at several trade shows, including Pittcon and the U.S. Human Proteome Organization annual symposium, and at all Agilent World Tour 2006 events. The sweepstakes is open to entrants from the United States and Canada. A winner will be randomly selected by September 30, 2006.
