Thermo Fisher Scientific and Markes International Announce Global Distribution Agreement
News Nov 19, 2009
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced a strategic agreement with Markes International.
This new agreement covers non-exclusive, global distribution of Markes Thermal Desorption (TD) instruments that are used in conjunction with Thermo Scientific gas chromatographs (GC) and Thermo Scientific gas chromatograph/mass spectrometers (GC/MS).
This agreement will allow customers requiring thermal desorption to realize productivity gains that Thermo Scientific GC and GC/MS instruments offer.
Both TD-enabled GC and GC/MS technologies are now available as original equipment from Thermo Fisher, allowing thermal desorption chromatographers to benefit from Thermo Fisher's service and support.
"The addition of Markes' world-leading technologies in thermal desorption to our already rich portfolio of sampling options in liquid, headspace and SPME injection means that Thermo Scientific GC and GC/MS systems can be used in even more versatile ways," said Joergen Olsson, director of marketing for GC and GC/MS, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "This allows scientists to choose the optimized approach that is ideally suited for their analytical challenge."

Proteome of the Human Heart Mapped for the First TimeNews
Scientists have determined which and how many individual proteins are present in each type of cell that occurs in the heart. In doing so, they compiled the first atlas of the healthy human heart, known as the cardiac proteome. The atlas will make it easier to identify differences between healthy and diseased hearts in future.READ MORE
