Agilent Technologies, Inc.
5301 Stevens Creek Blvd.
Santa Clara, CA, 95051

Press release date: October 24, 2012

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the webcast, "Calibration: Why It Matters and What It Should Include," hosted by Bob Stern, senior metrologist and Agilent Electronic Measurement Group representative to NCSLI. The webcast will be held Nov. 8.

This is the first webcast in a series that helps non-metrologists painlessly climb the learning curve by examining the key concepts of relevant calibration standards without getting mired in details. Participants will learn what to ask for, what to expect, and why it matters, when they evaluate who to choose for instrument calibration.

"In principle, calibration is the periodic process of ensuring your instruments meet warranted specifications," said Stern. "In practice, the actual deliverables vary significantly between calibration labs, enough so that instruments may not meet the specifications customers rely on for pass/fail decisions regarding their process or products."

The free one-hour webcast will cover three topics:

The major requirements of international calibration standards.
The key deliverables that fully document the calibration process.
The value those deliverables bring to the measurements an organization relies on most.

On the business side, calibration helps ensure lower cost of ownership, enhanced uptime and greater convenience. The series offers captions in multiple languages.
