Long history and global reach

Agilent's history can be traced to the 1960s when, as Hewlett-Packard, we entered the analytical chemistry market with our first gas chromatograph.

In a constant search for improvement and innovation, we expanded into mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography, and we've never looked back.

Today, we’re the global leader in laboratory technologies for the life sciences, diagnostics, and applied chemical market, and serve customers in over 110 countries.
