April 4, 2008, Santa Clara, CA--Agilent Technologies announced it has completed the acquisition of TILL Photonics (Munich, Germany), a developer, manufacturer, and marketer of optical, fluorescence microscopy products for the life sciences.

TILL Photonics' optical microscopes are used in fundamental research, applied science, and diagnostics. The acquisition will complement Agilent's atomic force microscope platform and is consistent with Agilent's strategy of providing customers with comprehensive workflow solutions.

TILL Photonics was founded in 1993 by Rainer Uhl, professor at the BioImaging Center of the University of Munich. TILL Photonics employees join the recently formed Materials Science Solutions Unit (MSSU) within Agilent's Life Science and Chemical Analysis business. MSSU's focus is to provide microscopy, spectroscopy and particle analysis solutions for the materials testing, life sciences, and chemical analysis markets, as well as to advance nanotechnology.
