Industry News: Discover the Latest Innovations Enhancing Scientific Connectivity

01 Mar 2018


Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., a world leader in serving science, has unveiled an expanded portfolio of analytical instruments, consumables, software and services to make technology more available to scientists worldwide, enabling faster, more informed decisions based on advanced scientific data. 

The Pittcon 2018 Conference and Exhibition provides a backdrop for new instruments and software that are easier to use and more accessible, allowing customers to accelerate innovation and improve productivity in pharma and biotech, environmental analysis, academic research and other applications. 

“The ecosystem that exists today around cloud computing, big data and machine learning allows more scientists globally to experience the power of our extensive offering,” said Dan Shine, senior vice president, analytical instruments, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Making our instruments easier to use and integrated within the lab environment allows the transformation of data into knowledge and plays a significant role in helping move science forward.” 

Easier-to-use, Highly Accessible Instruments 


Cloud enabled equipment can connect everything in a lab, from research protocols and pipettes to data storage. The ability to integrate and connect multiple instruments simplifies workflows and data management while helping customers meet their goals for innovation and productivity. 

The new Thermo Scientific Dionex ICS-6000 high performance ion chromatography (HPIC) system is designed for ultimate flexibility and performance in routine environmental analysis. The system features automated performance monitoring and diagnostic capabilities, offering users on-demand support to facilitate uninterrupted operation and improve laboratory productivity. 

Thermo Fisher is also introducing the Thermo Scientific TSQ 9000 Triple Quadrupole GC-MS system and the Thermo Scientific ISQ 7000 Single Quadrupole GC-MS system, which provide maximum uptime, ease-of-use and unprecedented sensitivity to meet increasing regulatory requirements in environmental, food and forensic laboratories. 

For high-throughput analyses, biotherapeutic characterization and pharmaceutical quality control, the Thermo Scientific Vanquish Duo UHPLC systems represent a new generation of Thermo Fisher’s leading UHPLC platform. They are designed to maximize throughput while providing scientists with a more complete understanding of their samples. The Vanquish Duo system can be used to characterize large and small molecules for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical applications, helping manufacturers deliver safe and effective medicines that meet regulatory standards. 

Designed for today’s modern lab, the Thermo Scientific GENESYS UV-Vis spectrophotometers have been optimized for usability and performance. Industrial QA/QC technicians, instructors and university researchers seeking durable UV-visible spectrophotometers that are accessible, automated and network-ready can now choose from a flexible range of options with the newly designed GENESYS UV-Vis platform. 

More Effective QA/QC 


The enhanced Thermo Scientific iCAP TQs ICP-MS system expands the company’s portfolio of industry-leading detection capabilities for use in certain industrial applications, including semiconductor. The ultra-pure sample analysis performance of this technology bolsters the QA/QC and wafer-fabrication process, providing semiconductor and ultra-high purity chemical facilities with simple and effective analytical solutions.  


Streamlined Data Collection, Analysis and Sharing 


The new Thermo Scientific Chromeleon XTR Laboratory Management System builds on the company’s gold standard chromatography data system (CDS). It is built to ensure process adherence, data integrity and complete regulatory compliance with standards including cFDA, USFDA, MHRA, EU and cGXP.


Thermo Scientific FTIR instrumentation now includes the innovative OMNIC Anywhere software. OMNIC Anywhere is a cloud-based software for molecular spectroscopy applications that enables customers to store, share and interpret spectral data across multiple labs on Windows and Apple computing platforms. Designed for use on Thermo Scientific spectrometers, the OMNIC Anywhere app provides researchers, lab technicians, educators and students with remote access to data. OMNIC Anywhere is the newest in a growing number of applications powered by the Thermo Fisher Cloud that help instrument users collect, monitor, and analyze, share and store data in a secure environment for a growing number of applications.
