Agilent Technologies Inc. have acquired Virtual Control’s ACIES advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technology, which has been developed for innovative analysis solutions in lab testing. ACIES will be integrated into Agilent’s gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GS/MS) platforms to enhance productivity, efficiency and accuracy at the many high-throughput labs they serve worldwide. Agilent have obtained the software and other assets associated with ACIES; core members of the ACIES team have now joined Agilent.
ACIES automates the laborious job of gas chromatography/mass spectrometry data analysis making laboratory workflow far more efficient throughout the whole process from sampling to reporting. ACIES will be integrated into Agilent’s MassHunter software package for LC/MS and GC/MS analysers. This latest acquisition will be of significant benefit to labs in the food testing, agricultural, and environmental sectors.
