Mar 3, 2010 Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, strengthens its position as the industry’s innovation powerhouse with a comprehensive showing of new high-end analytical instruments, laboratory equipment, software, consumables and reagents at Pittcon 2010, being held from February 28 - March 5 in Orlando. Whether providing customers with the ability to perform complex proteomics research, bringing industry-leading technologies to routine applications, or enabling fast and accurate analysis in the field, Thermo Fisher is committed to connecting customers with the tools, knowledge and insight to serve science in ways no other company can. “We are in the unique position of not only helping our customers to improve the quality of research, but also driving their productivity through improved workflows and operating processes,” said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Our Thermo Scientific brand is accelerating their progress by providing industry leading technologies, while our Fisher Scientific channel continues to streamline laboratory supply chain management for our customers.” Thermo Fisher’s new technologies, products and services are highlighted this year in booths 2757 and 2657. Progress Starts Here is the theme reinforced through the company’s Thermo Scientific technology and innovation brand, while the Fisher Scientific brand represents choice and convenience through One Source, Infinite Solutions. Enabling Researchers to Solve Tomorrow’s Challenges As researchers close in on their understanding of disease, its causes and potential treatments, the speed and accuracy with which decisions are made becomes more critical to the process. For the proteomic researcher, for example, who is pushing the boundaries of science to discover new drugs, Thermo Fisher has reinvented ion trap technology with its new Thermo Scientific LTQ Velos platform. The improvements in speed and sensitivity in the LTQ Velos enable more confident sequence assignment and post-translational modification (PTM) identification. The LTQ Orbitrap Velos combines the increased sensitivity and improved cycle time of the LTQ Velos with the proven mass accuracy and ultra-high resolution of the company’s revolutionary Orbitrap mass analyzer to deliver high-performance hybrid mass spectrometry. Steven Gygi, PhD, Associate Professor of Cell Biology at Harvard Medical School has already witnessed the transformation this new technology has made possible for cellular proteome analysis. “The ability to analyze more samples in a day than we previously could in weeks – and with the assurance that the results are even more accurate – changes the rules of the game,” Gygi said. The company is also meeting the demand for rapid screening and analysis of complex samples containing pesticides, metabolites or other target compounds by combining its highly effective Exactive benchtop liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) system with its Transcend online sample extraction technology for a complete Thermo Scientific LC/MS solution. The TurboFlow technology in Transcend permits direct injection of complex matrices, virtually eliminating upfront sample preparation and delivering reliable analysis in a fraction of the time.
