Building on its industry-leading position in mass spectrometry, the company will introduce new Thermo Scientific instruments, accessories and software that offer advanced performance while helping customers to meet increasing productivity demands. The new LTQ Velos™ features a dual-pressure trap design and higher efficiency API source, making it the industry's fastest and most-sensitive ion trap mass spectrometer. The unique dual-pressure trap technology enables the use of optimal pressures during ion trapping and subsequent analysis, increasing both scan speed and resolution. These faster scan rates can help reduce cycle times by up to 50 percent, and significantly increase the number of proteins and peptides identified.

The LTQ Orbitrap Velos™ combines new dual-trap Velos technology with a new Higher-Energy Collisional Dissociation (HCD) cell on the company's award-winning Orbitrap™ mass analyzer platform to routinely deliver ultrahigh resolution and accurate mass data from a unique hybrid format. This technology combination offers increased speed, sequence coverage and confidence in protein identification. The Thermo Scientific LTQ Orbitrap platform remains the most comprehensive structural identification mass spectrometry instrument, making it the system of choice for protein and metabolite identification, characterization and quantitation.

The benchtop Thermo Scientific Exactive is the company's latest high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) system, delivering dramatically simplified sample screening and quantitation for customers looking to improve workflows in pharmaceutical, food, environmental and industrial laboratories. Built on the Orbitrap platform, Exactive™ features full-scan, ultrahigh-resolution, accurate mass capabilities while delivering simultaneous qualitative and quantitative results. While simple to operate, Exactive sets new standards for LC-MS performance at resolutions up to 100,000. Its intuitive new Pathfinder™ software employs pre-configured methods that allow non-specialists to operate the system in "walk-up" mode.

For food and environmental safety testing, Thermo Fisher will feature the new TSQ Quantum Access MAX™ triple-stage quadrupole mass spectrometry system and new TraceFinder™ software, which comes with pre-configured methods to enable analysis in minutes instead of hours or days. This Thermo Scientific solution is designed to help laboratories meet increasingly stringent monitoring requirements, simplify analysis, streamline workflows and boost productivity.

Launching for the first time in Europe at ACHEMA 2009 will be the company's latest combustion elemental analyzer, the Thermo Scientific TITAN 4000. This innovative product is designed for today's demanding petrochemical industries. Unique combustion technology reduces the use of consumables and minimizes instrument size, saving bench space in the laboratory. Powerful advances in technology within the TITAN 4000™ deliver exceptional results, including Total Nitrogen/Total Sulfur (TN/TS) analysis, in some cases of less than two minutes.

Two new Thermo Scientific centrifuge series will be on display. The Heraeus® three-liter general- purpose series and the Heraeus Megafuge® 40 centrifuge series provide high capacity and ergonomics for routine sample preparations. The Heraeus centrifuges incorporate patented, market-leading technology for superior high-throughput processing. With a compact and user-friendly design, both centrifuge lines combine energy efficiency with innovation.

New Thermo Scientific FH100 peristaltic pump systems provide a number of important advantages for fluid-handling applications in life sciences, pharmaceutical and industrial markets. Features include single-channel, variable flow and a variable speed range. The unit's powerful motor provides accurate speed control and repeatability as well as remote control operation. The pump is also reversible and includes an integrated tachometer.

Also on display will be a new extension of the Thermo Scientific HERAfreeze ultralow temperature upright freezers, which are ideal for safeguarding valuable laboratory samples. The HERAfreeze® line features innovative thin-wall insulation technology for maximum interior storage capacity without increasing the footprint of the cabinet. A patented refrigeration system and a robust electronics platform provide excellent energy efficiency, temperature stability and fast recovery times across the entire range, to help ensure high sample integrity.

Two new versions of the Thermo Scientific HAAKE line of refrigerated and heated baths will meet pharmaceutical, chemical and industrial laboratory requirements for temperature control. These cost-efficient, highly reliable products offer energy-saving features, configurability and low-noise operation, all in a small footprint.

An updated Reaction Block for determining compound solubility will also be on display. The Thermo Scientific STEM Integrity 10 is a highly sensitive, 10-channel detection system that accurately maintains conditions within each of 10 individual cells, delivering temperature stability and accuracy. The Integrity 10 solubility and crystallization software provides full data logging of all key parameters using PC control. Experimental records and data are clearly displayed for convenient, at-a-glance monitoring.

Instrumentation, Control and Automation
Booths H40 - J41 in Hall 10.1

The instrumentation, control and automation halls will showcase a number of new Thermo Scientific products and services. The HAAKE MARS rheometer precisely analyzes a material's processability and temperature-related mechanical changes and fully meets all R&D rheological requirements. The instrument can perform measurements on diluted samples within a wide temperature range. The HAAKE MARS platform is modular in design, supporting future technical innovations and assuring compatibility based on the wide range of accessories.

Also featured on the booth is the Thermo Scientific family of flowmeters. The new M-PULSe® is an ultrasonic flowmeter that combines a multi-path ultrasonic flowmeter with a fast flow computer to create a liquid flow measurement system with superior accuracy. Ideal for custody transfer and leak detection, the system's accuracy surpasses the API-required custody transfer specification, making it the most accurate flowmeter on the market today. The next-generation AutoPILOT PRO™ is a new gas flow computer designed to scale from a simple, single-run measurement application to six runs with full station control. This accurate, easy-to-use instrument features full USB support and is simple to configure with no programming required, delivering increased productivity and profitability.
