Spark pioneered Solid Phase Extraction with on-line elution into HPLC and LC-MS systems in the 1980s, followed by its introduction to the market in the early 1990s. Since then, the company has evolved into a world-class provider of innovative sample introduction, extraction and separation technology for analytical systems such as HPLC, MS, GC and NMR. Its installed base of OEM autosamplers will this year exceed the 20,000 mark, while more than 700 automated online SPE systems are now operational around the globe.
Spark pro-actively gathers customer feedback and seeks to understand the typical problems in the analytical lab. This allows focus on product development towards method robustness, reproducibility, throughput and reliability, all to serve the united goal: increased lab efficiency, better economics and not the least important, ease of operation. With the ability to listen to customers, commitment to reduce their worry list and with 25% of its staff assigned to R&D, Spark is developing solutions today that customers will need tomorrow.
