MOBILion Systems Inc. will showcase its first commercial high-resolution ion mobility (HRIM) product, MOBIE®, at the 69th Annual American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) conference. Taking place from October 31 to November 4, the conference is the first in-person ASMS since 2019, and is being held in MOBILion’s backyard, in Philadelphia, PA.
MOBIE, launched in June 2021, addresses characterization challenges faced during biopharmaceutical drug development and quality monitoring, and is based upon SLIM (Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulation) technology originally invented by Dr. Richard D. Smith at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).
ASMS will provide the first chance for many mass spectrometry scientists to meet the MOBILion team and to see the instrument up close and personal. There will be plenty of opportunities for conference attendees (both in person and virtual) to interact with MOBILion and learn more about this highly anticipated new technology and the team that developed it. MOBILion has 17 presentations showcasing SLIM-based research (three orals and 14 posters), as well as several workshops for in-person attendees.
Virtual attendees will be able to tune into the oral and poster presentations via the ASMS portal, and MOBILion’s own virtual platform.
Dr. Melissa Sherman, CEO, MOBILion Systems, commented: “We are excited to be welcoming ASMS attendees to our hometown of Philadelphia. This is the moment we have been waiting for and we are looking forward to celebrating with everyone at our launch event! In 2017, when MOBILion was founded, we set ASMS 2021 in Philadelphia as our target launch date. This marks the culmination of four years of hard work, built upon the foundation of Dr. Richard Smith’s innovation, and is a testament to our team’s perseverance and dedication to accomplishing a goal. We are thrilled to be able to show industry thought leaders the impact MOBIE can have to better characterize complex therapeutics and bring drugs to market faster. ASMS is the premier venue to demonstrate to researchers how game-changing separation science and resulting products can address characterization challenges and change the paradigm of high-resolution separations.”
