Microsaic Systems plc (AIM: MSYS), the developer of point of need mass spectrometry instruments, announces it has today signed a Heads of Terms agreement (“HoT”) with Knauer Wissenschaftliche Geräte GmbH (“Knauer”).

The HoT provides for the integration of Microsaic’s compact Mass Spectrometry (“MS”) technology into Knauer’s liquid chromatography platform, and for the products to be sold direct by Knauer in Germany and globally via its extensive distribution network.

Glenn Tracey, CEO of Microsaic, commented “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Knauer, which is well known for product quality, breadth of applications’ expertise, and commitment to customer quality. Integrating with our compact MS technology will enable Knauer to extend its reach into mass directed applications, where customers demand higher chemical elucidation.”

Alexandra Knauer, CEO of Knauer, added “Our customers in the field of Liquid Chromatography (LC) purification increasingly demand more confidence in fractionation than UltraViolet (UV) or Diode Array Detection (DAD) based setups can provide. Microsaic offers an attractive MS detection system, which will perfectly complement our existing LC purification solutions.”
