Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Advanced Analytical Instruments Receive R&D 100 Awards
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. received R&D 100 Awards from R&D World Magazine for two of its most recently launched analytical instruments. The R&D 100 Awards competition honors the latest innovations in science and technology, identifying the top 100 revolutionary technologies of the past year.
The Thermo Scientific Gallery Enzyme Master Enzyme Analyzer was recognized as an R&D 100 Award winner in the Analytical/Test category. It is the first automated discrete analyzer designed specifically for enzyme assay applications, streamlining workflows for industrial enzyme manufacturers and enzyme users in the food, beverage, biopharmaceutical, fuel ethanol and chemical, and solid waste management industries. The analysis the technology enables ultimately helps society in numerous ways, including making food taste better and helping industrial processes to become less energy intensive and more sustainable while using less hazardous chemicals.
The Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Exploris MX Mass Detector was also a recipient of an R&D 100 Award in the Analytical/Test category. The mass spectrometer was recognized for its ability to offer high resolution accurate mass (HRAM) data for intact analysis of monoclonal antibodies, oligonucleotide mass determination and peptide mapping in drug discovery applications. The Orbitrap Exploris MX Mass Detector is a part of a multi-attribute method (MAM) workflow that is designed for efficient, scalable production, to enable drug safety and to accelerate drug approval so that new drugs become available to patients faster.
“We are honored to receive this distinguished award for two of our latest innovations, recognizing the hard work and dedication of our colleagues,” said John Lesica, president, chromatography and mass spectrometry, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “We’re committed to prioritizing innovation to develop new technologies that enhance research and drive science forward, enabling our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.”
The renowned R&D 100 Awards have identified revolutionary technologies introduced to the market since 1963, and, in 2022, the program received entries from more than a dozen countries and regions. This year’s esteemed panel of judges included nearly 50 well-respected industry professionals from around the world.
