Thermo Fisher Scientific is showcasing new products designed to help customers in applied markets accelerate innovation and maximize productivity at this year's Pittcon event, which is taking place in New Orleans, US, on 8–12 March.

‘We continue to extend the use of our industry-leading analytical instruments and software to customers in applied markets who need greater sensitivity and speed,’ said Marc Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. ‘Our new products being launched at Pittcon this year reflect our ongoing commitment to technology innovation and our focus on giving customers in a range of industries the tools they need to achieve their goals.’

One of these new products is the company’s newest ultra high-performance liquid chromatography system, the Thermo Scientific Vanquish UHPLC, which offers breakthrough performance in sample separation, throughput and ease-of-use for applications ranging from pharmaceutical QA/QC to food safety testing. The Vanquish system also features the company's gold-standard Chromeleon Chromatography Data System to further simplify HPLC analysis.

Another new product is the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive Focus mass spectrometry system, which brings industry-leading Orbitrap technology to customers who typically use quadrupole time-of-flight (Q-TOF) mass spectrometry. It can provide sensitivity, selectivity, flexibility and ease-of-use for customers working in food safety, pharmaceutical QA/QC and environmental testing laboratories.

In addition, Thermo Fisher continues to expand the use of technologies traditionally developed for the lab, making them more transportable so advanced analysis can be brought to the field. The new Thermo Scientific Gemini Handheld analyzer is the industry’s first instrument combining FTIR and Raman spectroscopy technologies into a single, rugged handheld unit. The Gemini analyzer allows military troops, explosives teams and hazmat units to employ both techniques when identifying unknown chemicals and explosives.

Improved accessibility to scientific expertise is a much-needed resource for smaller labs. To this end, Thermo Fisher is introducing a new searchable online knowledge base for analytical methods, the Thermo Scientific AppsLab Application Laboratory. Users can access detailed method information, chromatograms and related compound information, created and tested by Thermo Fisher Scientific application scientists, which can be downloaded and integrated directly into Chromeleon software.

The company is also unveiling the latest version of the industry's most widely installed informatics solution, Thermo Scientific Sample Manager LIMS, which improves productivity through an all-in-one, standardized platform. The system now incorporates method execution, data visualization and laboratory management as well as offering seamless integration with all popular enterprise-level software packages.
