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."
