Experience the latest in high-performance organic and inorganic characterization at Pittcon 2020

Exum Instruments, a Denver-based firm, announced the launch of its first product offering, the Massbox. The Massbox is the first Laser Ablation Laser Ionization Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer (LALI-TOF-MS) instrument on the market, capable of analyzing any sample you can throw at it. The Massbox's cutting-edge hardware and software ecosystems increase the speed of development and discovery, offering easy access to high-performance organic and inorganic characterization at a low cost.

Jeff Williams, CEO and Co-Founder, "Our main goal in developing the Massbox was to allow industry to quantifiably characterize those materials being crafted or produced and explored. This simple, small and rugged tool can be deployed anywhere and now anyone can use it out of the box with very minimal training. Put your sample in, choose your spots, press GO." Exum's mandate has been to make scientific instruments that everyone can use.

Exum's Massbox not only offers higher fidelity characterization than its competitors but is also priced well below half of those same instruments. Steve Strickland, CFO and Co-Founder, "We see the approach instrument companies have taken in the past and that very little evolution has occurred. Tools are still too big, too expensive and too difficult to use. Exum is flipping all of those expectations on their heads."

Exum is releasing the Massbox at Pittcon, a global exposition giving attendees the opportunity to get a hands-on look at the latest laboratory instruments, next week, March 3-5, in Chicago. At their booth, 4521, Exum will be running the Massbox on different samples. Attendees are encouraged to come by the booth, run a sample and see the ease with which their materials will be assessed.
