SPEware Corporation

SPEware provides advanced sample preparation solutions to analytical laboratories, by combining smart chemistry consumables with dedicated instruments and modules to make liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) workflows more efficient. The overall market for these extraction technologies expands with a mid single-digit percentage rate per year. SPEware has clearly outgrown the market in recent years, due to its differentiated product offering and to the underlying market trend of adoption of automated solid phase extraction as the preferred sample preparation technique for high complexity tests. SPEware's clients are mostly large reference labs and specialized laboratories in North America that predominantly use SPEware's solutions for toxicology testing and other analyses of complex sample matrices such as urine or saliva. Separation of targeted analytes from complex matrix components prior to injection onto the LC-MS offers numerous advantages including improved assay robustness and less instrument maintenance. SPEware's proprietary micro-particulate sorbent consumables for solid phase extraction offer important advantages, including higher selectivity, reproducible separations and overall data improvement. Workflows are also more automation friendly which offers the additional potential of integrating SPEware's automated positive pressure processors into Tecan's liquid handling workstations. Established almost 20 years ago, SPEware is based in Baldwin Park, California (USA), and has over 60 employees. The company operations are vertically integrated with product development, columns packing, molding operation and the manufacturing of dedicated hardware devices. *
