Although headquartered in Silicon Valley, Agilent has campuses worldwide that innovate like local startups. In Delaware, for example, at the company’s Wilmington and Newport sites, employees design and manufacture instruments that test for drugs, food and environmental safety, and forensic toxicology to help address the world’s measurement needs with high levels of accuracy.
Recently, researchers at the Wilmington campus innovated products that help regulatory agencies, heath experts, and even Nobel Peace prizewinners assure public safety from potential toxic threats to our food supply and environment. And at the Newport site, employees manufacture and manipulate silica particles that are 100 times smaller than a grain of sand. These particles are used in columns which are utilized by many industries — such as pharmaceutical — to develop and test new drugs.
