Launch of new-generation spectrometer at ACHEMA 2012.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has extended its leading FT-IR spectrometry platform by introducing the first research-grade FT-IR system designed for simple one-touch operation.

The new Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS50 FT-IR spectrometer is one of several innovative products being introduced at ACHEMA to help customers increase laboratory efficiency in markets ranging from pharma and biotech, to chemical and petrochemical, to industrial and applied.

These new offerings, along with the company’s comprehensive portfolio of chromatography, mass spectrometry, and environmental analysis technologies, are being showcased within Thermo Scientific booth B7, hall 4.2 at ACHEMA 2012, being held from June 18 - 22 in Frankfurt.

“In today’s economic environment, our customers need analytical tools that help them work much more efficiently, while improving the accuracy of their results,” said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher.

Casper continued, “To meet this challenge, a key element of our innovation strategy is to strengthen our core technology platforms, and the new iS50 FT-IR spectrometer is another excellent example. This new product significantly enhances our industry-leading capabilities by providing our customers with a system that greatly simplifies FT-IR analysis to accelerate their results in research or process applications.”

The Nicolet iS™50 spectrometer builds on the company’s industry-leading Magna, Nexus and Nicolet 6700 spectrometry systems.

It features purpose-built accessories and integrated software designed to provide all-in-one materials analysis that helps laboratories improve productivity by solving analytical challenges more quickly and easily.

When equipped with optional modules, the iS50 system becomes a powerful materials analysis workhorse capable of extracting vast amounts of information from a wide range of samples.

Also during ACHEMA 2012, Thermo Fisher introduced its Thermo Scientific UltiMate 3000 XRS UHPLC system, setting a new standard of flexibility for the UltiMate 3000 UHPLC+ family.

The UltiMate 3000 XRS™ leverages the company’s Dionex UHPLC product line to offer increased capabilities in solvent delivery and sample handling for high-throughput laboratories.

The large portfolio of detector options further enhances this flexibility across a wide range of applications.

Thermo Fisher also showcased its new high-performance Thermo Scientific TSQ 8000 triple quadrupole GC-MS system, an easy-to-use instrument that enables greater analytical speed, precision and accuracy while saving time and reducing laboratory costs.

The TSQ 8000™ is ideal for forensic toxicology and sports doping testing, as well as applied markets such as food and environmental analysis.

For food and polymer laboratories, the new Thermo Scientific Process 11 twin-screw extruder is four to five times smaller than competing twin-screw extruders, requires less sample material and reduces analysis time.
