Agilent Technologies and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, US, have opened the Agilent Technologies Mass Spectrometry Center of Excellence. The new center will be based in Baylor's Alkek Center for Molecular Discovery and focus on metabolomics.

To this end, Agilent is equipping the new center with two systems configured for metabolomics: an Agilent 6495 triple quadrupole LC/MS system and an Agilent 6550 iFunnel quadrupole time-of-flight LC/MS system. Baylor and Agilent will use this equipment collaboratively to analyze samples, conduct research and train students.

'The growing significance of metabolomics, not only in life science research but in many application spaces, has resulted in the need for more analytical capabilities,' said Arun Sreekumar, co-director of the Alkek Center. 'Baylor and Agilent have identified several areas of mutual interest – metabolomics, lipidomics, clinical research, disease research – where we believe we can make real progress together.'
