Approximately 7,000 Virginia Tech chemistry students per year will have access to seven new Agilent 5975C gas chromatography/mass spectrometry systems, six 240FS atomic absorption spectrometry systems, a major upgrade to the department's nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy console, a 6100 Series single quadrupole liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry system, a Cary Eclipse fluorescence spectrophotometer, and a Cary 100 UV/Vis spectrophotometer.

"This upgrade will enormously enhance the undergraduate laboratory experience for all students enrolled in chemistry classes-majors and non-majors," said professor Jim Tanko, chair of the Virginia Tech chemistry department. "Virginia Tech will provide unprecedented, state-of- the-art facilities in support of undergraduate education. We are particularly excited that general chemistry labs for freshmen have been equipped with GC/MS equipment. We believe Virginia Tech is the first in the nation to offer this experience on such a large scale."

"Agilent is excited to be a part of this project," said Bob Walker, Agilent regional manager. "Virginia Tech's chemistry department is transforming science education by bringing students in contact with modern, industry-standard technology early in their academic experience. Also, thanks to Agilent's expanded portfolio, customers can now fully equip their laboratories with a complete suite of analytical tools from a single vendor and receive world-class products and support."
