Microsaic Systems plc, welcomes the official launch by Biotage AB, a leading global supplier of laboratory equipment, of the Isolera™ Dalton, a fully integrated system for Flash chromatography and mass identification incorporating Microsaic’s novel miniature mass spectrometer – the Microsaic MiD®.

The Isolera™ Dalton seamlessly integrates the Microsaic MiD® with Biotage’s flagship Flash purification system Isolera™ to enable a chemist to identify compounds by mass in real-time during Flash separation.

Discussions with further potential partners and customers are on-going, and convince us there is significant additional demand for our product across multiple application areas and formats, and we look forward to announcing further progress in due course.”
