Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE: TMO), the world leader in serving science, today reinforced its market-leading portfolio of mass spectrometry technologies with the launch of its latest and most advanced instrument lines - the LTQ Velos™ and LTQ Velos™ Orbitrap - at the 57th American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) annual conference, which runs from May 31- June 4, in Philadelphia.

Thermo Fisher is the leading provider of mass spectrometry instruments, software solutions and integrated workflows. At this year's ASMS, the company will highlight new technologies that deliver better analytical performance, improved data management and greater productivity and ease-of-use for a wide range of applications.

Building on its progression of award-winning Thermo Scientific mass spectrometry technologies, including the TSQ Quantum™, the Orbitrap™ and the Exactive™, the company's new LTQ Velos features a dual-pressure trap design. This unique technology makes it the industry's fastest and most-sensitive ion trap mass spectrometer, increasing both scan speed and resolution. Improved scan rates can help reduce cycle times by up to 50 percent, while significantly increasing the number of proteins, peptides, and metabolites identified in life sciences research. The LTQ Velos Orbitrap combines new dual-trap Velos technology with the company's award-winning Orbitrap mass analyzer platform. This combination offers ultrahigh resolution, accurate mass data, increased speed, sequence coverage and confidence in protein identification.

Thermo Fisher is leveraging its heritage of breakthrough advances to address three major customer needs in mass spectrometry today:

* Improve instrument sensitivity and specificity for quantification
* Manage, structure and interpret large volumes of data
* Support a wider range of instrument users.

Researchers are capitalizing on Thermo Fisher's advanced technologies that respond to these needs to help them deliver impressive results. Improved analytical capabilities are reducing analysis times from weeks to days and hours. In addition to delivering results faster, new instruments such as the LTQ Velos are capable of providing more analytical detail and specificity than ever before, in some cases identifying greater than 50 percent more compounds than existing technologies to accelerate drug discovery or proteomics research.

"We strive to provide our customers with innovative new mass spectrometry instruments and technologies that deliver the highest levels of analytical sensitivity and rigorous data interpretation," said Dr. Ian Jardine, vice president of global research and development at Thermo Fisher Scientific. "As the market leader, we can offer our customers complete workflows designed to increase research efficiency and laboratory productivity. Our customers turn to us for unique solutions based on our continuous commitment to innovation and unmatched breadth of our technology portfolio."
