Agilent acquires AFM maker Molecular Imaging

November 30, 2005 – Agilent Technologies Inc. has acquired privately held Molecular Imaging Corp., a developer and manufacturer of nanotechnology measurement tools including atomic force microscopes (AFMs). Financial details were not disclosed.

Nanotechnology is important to Agilent because it is a common denominator between the two chief areas of the company’s business – the electronic measurements side and the analytical measurements side, which concentrates on life sciences and chemical analysis, said Bob Burns, VP of Agilent’s Nanotechnology Measurements Division.
