AB SCIEX Expands Commercial Operations in Brazil
News Mar 19, 2012
This expansion represents AB SCIEX’s increasing investment in Brazil, which is a rapidly emerging leader for scientific advancements in Latin America.
With a growing base of mass spectrometry customers already in Brazil, AB SCIEX is investing to enhance customer service and support, set up a customer training center in São Paulo and expand the application demo facility with state-of-the-art laboratory products currently not available for demonstration in the country. AB SCIEX is replacing indirect distribution with a direct model of sales and support within Brazil to create new opportunities for customer interactions, collaborations and innovation.
“AB SCIEX is a trusted partner with thousands of scientists around the world, including many Brazilian researchers,” said Mateus Campos, country manager, AB SCIEX Brazil. “Our commercial expansion in Brazil is a positive step forward to better enable Brazilian scientists to push the limits of analytical science in their fields. Our working more closely with an increasing number of scientists locally is intended to help Brazil ensure a safer food supply and environment, develop more effective drugs and achieve much-needed biomedical breakthroughs, ultimately improving life for the Brazilian people.”
AB SCIEX has a more than 20-year history of innovation and is a market leader in mass spectrometry. The company has been selling its best-in-class mass spectrometry technologies in Brazil for more than a decade through different channels, including Life Technologies, under the “Applied Biosystems” brand. Going forward, AB SCIEX is now combining its global resources, scientific expertise and product development leadership under the “AB SCIEX” brand with a highly qualified, experienced local team in Brazil to support existing and new mass spectrometry users.
AB SCIEX excels by listening to and understanding the ever-evolving needs of its customers to develop reliable, sensitive and intuitive LC/MS/MS solutions that continue to redefine what is achievable in routine and complex analysis. These solutions consist of a broad portfolio of industry-leading products, including TripleTOF systems, QTRAP® systems and Eksigent LC systems as well as a comprehensive suite of application-specific software and methods. Supporting these workflow solutions are AB SCIEX’s world-class service and support.

Stainless Steel That Is More Resistant to BacteriaNews
Stainless steel is widely used in surgical instruments and implants but over time, implants can be rejected by the body and in unhygienic surgical environments, steel may not adequately resist the accumulation of harmful bacteria. However, scientists have now developed a way to modify the surface of the stainless steel by creating a set of pores at the nanoscale. The improved material could benefit the food and beverage industry as well as medicine.READ MORE
