Advion Announces Introduction of TriVersa NanoMate for Mass Spectrometry: LC/MS coupling , fraction collection and infusion in one integrated system

Dedicated to Science, Dedicated to You

June 6, 2005 — (Ithaca, NY – June 6, 2005) – Advion Inc., of Ithaca, N.Y., a developer of chip-based products designed to boost the sensitivity, data quality and sample throughput for mass spectrometers today introduced its TriVersa NanoMate System at the 53rd annual meeting of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS), held in San Antonio, TX, June fifth through June nineth. Founded in 1993, the privately held company has many top academic institutions, biotechnology companies, and pharmaceutical companies as clients.

Scheduled for commercial availability in Q3 2005, TriVersa NanoMate is the first system of its kind to integrate LC/MS, fraction collection and chip-based infusion in one platform. TriVersa gives proteomics and small molecule researchers the ability to obtain greater than 10 times more information from their sample. The system speeds the discovery process by allowing extra time to analyze complex components not easily characterized on a chromatographic time scale.

The versatility of the system allows interrogation of samples using on-line LC/MS and infusion of LC fractions. The system is compatible with LC, micro and nanoLC for low concentration samples. Additionally, TriVersa NanoMate works with most API mass spectrometers.
