Biotage launches the Isolera Dalton
Official launch of an integrated purification system featuring Microsaic’s MiD®
Microsaic Systems plc (AIM: MSYS), welcomes the official launch by Biotage AB (Uppsala, Sweden), 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. By integrating separation with mass identification the system removes complex off-line analytical steps and can significantly increase throughput for the user.
Colin Jump, Chief Executive of Microsaic Systems, commented:
"One of Microsaic’s key strategic aims is to grow sales of our innovative products through OEM partnerships so today’s launch by Biotage of the Isolera™ Dalton incorporating our MiD® mass spectrometer represents an important milestone for the Company. The launch of the Isolera™ Dalton follows the announcement earlier this year of our second OEM agreement for the marketing and sale of the MiD® as a stand-alone instrument, demonstrating the excellent progress we are making towards delivering on our strategy. 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.”
About Microsaic Systems
Microsaic Systems develops and sells chip-based scientific instruments for the chemical identification of substances. The Company’s products are based on the ‘gold-standard’ scientific technique of mass spectrometry.
Microsaic Systems has developed a miniaturised mass spectrometer based on its patented, chip-based technologies (ionchip®, spraychip® and vac-chip™), that is smaller, lighter, quieter, more energy efficient and cheaper to run than conventional mass spectrometer systems.
Mass spectrometry is used across many industry sectors, including government, energy, utilities, pharmaceutical, diagnostics and healthcare, environmental, food and drink, security and defence, and industrial chemicals – a combined market of $3 billion in 2012.
Microsaic Systems was established in 2001 by a team including founders from Imperial College London, and was admitted to AIM in April 2011 under the symbol MSYS.
