Agilent Technologies has entered into a platinum sponsorship agreement with LabCentral, a biotech innovation hub based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, US. LabCentral is an independent, shared laboratory space designed as a launch-pad for high-potential life sciences and biotech start-ups.

As a platinum sponsor, Agilent will equip LabCentral’s shared laboratory workspace with a variety of Agilent technology. Instruments will include a high-resolution mass spectrometry system, as well as a cell analysis extracellular flux (XF) analyzer.

Agilent will also fund a high-potential biotech start-up company at LabCentral via a contest to award a Golden Ticket. The Agilent-sponsored Golden Ticket is good for one individual bench in LabCentral’s shared facility for one year. Online applications for the Golden Ticket open on 2 October 2017 and will be accepted until 12pm PST on 1 November 2017.

“Agilent is committed to supporting the next generation of scientific pioneers, and what better place to do so than in one of our nation’s fastest growing biotech communities,” said Darlene Solomon, senior vice president and chief technology officer for Agilent. “We couldn’t be more proud to offer our technologies to LabCentral residents, and our support to emerging biotech to help accelerate innovation in critical areas that can improve human health.”

“We’re honored to welcome Agilent as a platinum sponsor, which will enable us to build out significant extra analytical capacity for our start-ups to use,” said Johannes Fruehauf, co-founder and president of LabCentral. “In addition, we are especially happy that Agilent has agreed to become a Golden Ticket sponsor. The team has come up with an exciting process for identifying the winner, and I look forward to participating.”
