Agilent Technologies Introduces Latest NanoSuite Software, Delivers Unprecedented Functionality for Nanoindentation and Tensile Testing

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced the immediate availability of Agilent NanoSuite 6.0, an enhanced-performance software package designed specifically for use with popular Agilent Nano Indenter G200G300 and T150 UTM systems.

NanoSuite 6.0 gives researchers in scientific and industrial settings an unprecedented combination of speed, flexibility, ease of use and exclusive new application methods for nanoindentation. The new software package is ideal for nanomechanical properties measurements involving polymers, composites, thin film materials, MEMS, surface topology, stiffness mapping, and scratch testing.

"This premium version of our nanomechanical applications software catapults Agilent Nano Indenter and UTM users into a completely new realm of test method functionality," said Jeff Jones, operations manager for Agilent's nanoinstrumentation facility in Chandler, Ariz. " NanoSuite 6.0 enables them to set up, modify and run experiments with unparalleled quickness and control."

NanoSuite 6.0 builds seamlessly upon the intuitive interface, versatile imaging capabilities, survey scanning, and streamlined test-method development features introduced in the package's previous iteration. The NanoSuite 6.0 software package offers several groundbreaking test methods, including an exclusive nanoindentation technique for substrate-independent measurements of thin film materials as well as unique test techniques for polymers.

To increase throughput and productivity, NanoSuite 6.0 facilitates the fast creation of new batches of tests for multiple samples. In addition to easily adding, editing, reviewing, or deleting samples, researchers can select a previously run batch of tests as a template for the current run. In fact, with this new NanoSuite 6.0 technique, they can set up a standard batch of tests comprising 25 or more samples in five minutes or less.

Furthermore, NanoSuite 6.0 enables users to plot two-dimensional graphs, then export them directly to Microsoft Excel - axis titles, scales and all - exactly as they appeared on the monitor.
NanoSuite 6.0 also provides a new data structure that organizes sample files into projects and subprojects, Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit) compliance for current systems, and a convenient PDF printer to replace hardware printers.
