Thermo Fisher Scientific Wins Five R&D 100 Awards

(25.07.2013)


Background:
Called the "Oscars of Innovation", the R&D 100 Awards recognize and celebrate the top 100 technology products of the year. Past winners have included sophisticated testing equipment, innovative new materials, chemistry breakthroughs, biomedical products, consumer items, and high-energy physics. The R&D 100 Awards span industry, academia, and government-sponsored research. Winners are selected by an independent judging panel and the editors of R&D Magazine. Analytical instruments accounted for 12 of the winners in this year’s R&D 100 awards.

Thermo Fisher Scientific products winning the R&D 100 Award:
Five of the analytical winners came from Thermo Fisher Scientific.
  • EASY-Spray, which combines a liquid chromatography column, heater, high voltage electrode and emitter into a single system for protein analysis.
  • Dionex ICS-4000, which is the first high-pressure ion chromatography system that combines three different detectors – electrochemical, charge and conductivity.
  • TruNarc analyzer, a handheld Raman analyzer for identifying suspected narcotics.
  • Nicolet iS50 spectrometer, which is the first research-grade Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy instrument with one-touch automation.
  • iCAP Q, an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) system designed to be a rugged workhorse instrument for environmental, clinical research, pharmaceutical, food safety, metals and geochemical laboratories conducting both routine and complex elemental analyses.
Thermo Fisher has been recognized for more than 50 products since the inception of the R&D 100 awards program in 1963. “We take pride in providing our customers with advanced technologies to solve their most difficult challenges,” said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. “This recognition of our commitment to innovation highlights the success of those efforts across our analytical technologies portfolio.”
