Commenting on the landmarks, Advion’s CEO David B. Patteson stated, “Having launched the expression CMS product line about four years ago, we are exceedingly happy with the market adoption and product adaptation.  In 2012-2013, we quickly realized 10 units per quarter, and in 2017 approached 60/quarter. We recently launched our own (U)HPLC system, with full integration into our streamlined Mass Express software, and artfully combined with our popular TLC-CMS and ASAP sample introduction systems. This allows a chemist to select, via software, which modality they desire, touch a screen icon and the setups and changeovers between operations are automatic.”

Based upon publicly disclosed unit volumes from competitors, it is believed Advion enjoys >90% market share in the synthetic organic, natural product and peptide discovery chemistry deployed lab mass spec market.
