Advion’s Compact Mass Spectrometer Earns Big Accolades from SDi

Dedicated to Science, Dedicated to You

November 11, 2013 – Ithaca, NY – Founded in 1993, Advion, Inc. supplies ion sources and compact mass spectrometers to the life sciences, food and environmental industries. Last month it earned a well‐represented place in Strategic Directions International, Inc.’s (SDi) report “Mass Spectrometry: Limitless Innovation in Analytical Science” based on information gathered through calendar year 2012. Being recognized by an independent, well‐respected industry source within its first year of commercialization is a testament to the expression CMS’ fit‐for‐purpose design and strong market message. SDi estimates that Advion earned approximately 8% unit volume of the single quadrupole market revenue – a notable accomplishment given it was achieved within the first 12 months of commercialization.

“Advion launched the expression compact mass spectrometer (CMS) in March 2012, but has over 20 years of mass spectrometry experience. Being grouped among the industry’s leading mass spectrometer vendors proves that Advion addressed an unmet need within the market,” says David Patteson, Advion’s President and CEO. “Advion was ranked as the highest regarded and most respected among all small MS companies, due to our offering of ion sources and successful entry of the CMS, and we could not be prouder.”

The full report is available for purchase in the SDi website.
