Advion Announces Commercial Introduction of the expression CMS, a Compact Mass Spectrometer, at Pittcon

Dedicated to Science, Dedicated to You

ORLANDO, FL – March 12, 2012 – Advion, Inc. a leading life sciences Systems and Consumables developer, introduces the expression, a Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS), designed for the discovery research and process development synthetic organic chemistry market. Compact enough to operate in fume hoods and space-restricted laboratories, these chemists now have direct access to identify, monitor and confirm compounds rapidly as they are created in the reactor. Moreover, the personal single quadrupole mass spectrometer allows for rapid compound confirmation in normal phase chromatography fractions.

Traditionally, chemists initiate a multi‐hour reaction and periodically withdraw samples for analysis in an open access mass spectrometry lab. The remote analysis takes hours, decreasing the usefulness of the information and building workflow inefficiencies. Additionally, large numbers of normal phase purification fractions are generated and add to the central lab burden, further slowing vital feedback. The combination of a small footprint, critical design features, and an intuitive software package permits operation within a fume hood, or next to existing bench instrumentation, allowing users access to fast answers.

The newly-released and shipment-ready CMS is on exhibit (booth 1569), and a press conference is scheduled during the Annual Pittcon meeting in Orlando, FL.
