Bruker Celebrates Double Award Win at Pittcon 2012

The new GC-MS platform from Bruker Chemical and Applied Markets (CAM) Division – SCION TQ™ – picked up two prestigious awards at last week’s Pittcon in Orlando, Florida.

First up was the presentation of the 4th Annual Reader’s Choice Award for Gas Chromatography Products, sponsored by Laboratory Equipment Magazine.

Hot on the heels of this success, came the news that SCION TQ was the recipient of the 2012 Pittcon Editors’ Choice Silver Award, given for the best new products at the 2012 Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy. Established in 1996, these independent awards, which represent the results of a poll of leading editors, have become an important feature of the world’s largest trade show for the laboratory equipment industry.

Dr. Rohan Thakur, Vice President of Bruker’s Chemical and Applied Markets (CAM) Division commented: “It is very gratifying to get this positive market response. In addition to the commercial success we are already seeing, this recognition from both laboratory professionals and the industry tells me that we are on the right path in our product development. The SCION TQ and SCION SQ were developed with the gas chromatographer in mind – we wanted to enable users to reach lower detection limits, achieve better precision and higher productivity by removing the complexity and fragility of other instrument designs.”

The SCION TQ and SCION SQ represent the first new-generation GC-MS products following Bruker’s acquisition in 2010 of the Varian Lab GC, GC-MS quadrupole, and ICP-MS products. Design innovations such as Axial-Flow ion source, heated auto-focusing q0 ion optics, and EDR off-axis detector ensure the lowest possible detection limits and longest operation times. The ultra-fast 180° curved collision cell of SCION TQ delivers a space-saving design, which reduces instrument foot-print, thereby allowing laboratories to adopt triple quadrupole technology without sacrificing precious bench space.

Introduced in July 2011, the SCION TQ and SQ have already seen great acceptance in markets around the world. “SCION TQ was initially focused on high-growth application areas such as pesticide residue analysis and the food testing markets. But adoption has quickly spread to other segments: environmental and product safety, for example”, said Meredith Conoley, Director of Marketing for Bruker’s GC and GC-MS product line. “Importantly, key design innovations such as Compound Based Scanning (CBS) software, Axial Flow Source and Lens-Free Optical Ion Path, also apply to SCION SQ as well.  So, the innovations that these prestigious awards recognize are there for single quad users too.”
