Our objective is to benefit from access to an existing customer base and also to make mass spectrometry available to a wide range of new customers and to open new opportunities. We are very pleased at the progress being made with Biotage, which matches unique benefits of our miniaturised instruments with their product development and international commercial capabilities.”
