Thermo Electron Corporation. (9/8/05). "Press Release: Thermo Electron Significantly Enhances Mass Spectrometry Portfolio. New Product Developments and Strategic Acquisition Expand Offerings". Waltham, MA.
Thermo Electron Corporation (NYSE: TMO) today announced the introduction of three new mass spectrometers: the Finnigan(TM) LXQ(TM) Linear Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer for high-throughput drug discovery and proteomics; the DELTA V Series Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer for earth sciences research; and the DFS High Resolution Magnetic Sector Mass Spectrometer for high-precision environmental analysis. These new product introductions continue a year marked by a number of significant advancements in Thermo's mass spectrometry portfolio, including the introduction of the LTQ(TM) Orbitrap(TM) hybrid mass spectrometer, the first totally new mass analyzer to be introduced to the market in over 20 years, and the acquisition of Ionalytics to obtain a key patented ion separation technology.
"Thermo has successfully executed its strategy to build the most comprehensive mass spectrometry product offering of any company in the industry," said Marc Casper, senior vice president of Thermo Electron. "Through our aggressive R&D efforts and our focused acquisition strategy, we are uniquely able to satisfy the needs of both our life sciences and
industrial customer bases. I am more excited than ever about our market position and our opportunity for growth."
Today's New Product Launches
The Finnigan LXQ Linear Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer advances high-throughput drug discovery and proteomics by making linear trap performance a cost-effective option for fast-paced analytical laboratories. The Finnigan LXQ offers novel patented ion trap technology that delivers ultra fast cycle times and improved ion statistics, resulting in dramatically superior sensitivity and speed over 3D ion traps.
The DELTA V Series of gas isotope ratio mass spectrometers includes the DELTA V Advantage and the DELTA V Plus. The technology offers excellent linearity and stability in a new compact design that requires less laboratory space.
The DFS, a new high-resolution double-focusing magnetic sector GC-MS, is the most sensitive, reliable and comprehensive instrument for target compound analysis available on the market. This technology will be used primarily to perform trace compound analyses of environmental samples such as dioxins, as well as for sports doping.
Other Recent Mass Spectrometry Announcements
In August, Thermo announced the acquisition of Ionalytics. Ionalytics provides Thermo with a dynamic ion filtering device, developed using patented High-Field Asymmetric Waveform Ion Mobility Spectrometry (FAIMS) technology. FAIMS technology enables a novel method to separate ions that cannot be done easily or consistently using any other technique or combination of techniques.
Thermo's breakthrough hybrid mass spectrometer, the LTQ Orbitrap, was launched at the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry in June. The LTQ Orbitrap combines patented Orbitrap technology with the highly successful Finnigan LTQ linear ion trap, enabling faster, more sensitive and more reliable detection and identification of compounds in complex mixtures. Its outstanding mass accuracy, mass resolution and reliable high sensitivity MSn
performance make it a strong alternative to existing hybrid Time-of-Flight systems. The LTQ Orbitrap offers optimum performance for small molecule research, drug discovery, proteomics, metabolite identification and metabolomics.
For key quantitative pharmaceutical bioanalysis applications, Thermo also recently announced that the sensitivity and utility of Thermo's high resolution Finnigan TSQ Quantum(TM) Ultra has been significantly enhanced with a new heated ionization probe (H-ESI) along with the seamless Watson LIMS-Xcalibur digital interface designed to promote compliance with GLP standards, and 21 CFR Part 11 regulations.
In addition to these latest advances, Thermo continues to be a leader in a number of other MS instrument types, including quadrupole and ion trap GC-MS, and quadrupole and high resolution magnetic sector ICP-MS for elemental analysis. These systems are used extensively in a multitude of applications, especially environmental analysis.
