Markes International and Its Mass Spectrometry Division ALMSCO Merge

publication date: Jul 21, 2014
author/source: Markes International Limited

Markes International (Llantrisant, UK) has announced it has fully integrated its mass spectrometry division, ALMSCO International, into its core business operations.

Markes-International-mass-spectrometry-division-ALMSCO-mergeThis process, which was initiated in September 2013, is now complete, with all ALMSCO-branded products now fully under the Markes International banner.

Markes’ time-of-flight mass spectrometry (the BenchTOF™ range) and software products were originally launched under the ALMSCO brand, in order to ensure that Markes’ reputation as a supplier of analytical thermal desorption instrumentation didn’t limit the potential and scope of these technologies.

However, as the user base of ALMSCO products has widened, major performance and productivity advantages have been realised by combining Markes’ technologies for thermal desorption and time-of-flight mass spectrometry.

Markes’ Managing Director, Alun Cole, said “Analytical laboratories are increasingly looking for a range of capabilities for trace organic work. Responding to this, we’ve found that many of our customers can benefit from the versatility, automation and concentrating power of thermal desorption, combined with the full-spectral sensitivity of BenchTOF.”

“Bringing our ALMSCO products fully under the banner of Markes International makes it easier for us to deliver our expertise across all our technologies, for example through our recently re-launched website.”

Markes International manufactures specialist analytical instrumentation for trace organic analysis. It is renowned as a global market leader for analytical thermal desorption and for developing ground-breaking time-of-flight MS technology for gas chromatography. In January 2013, Markes became part of the Mulheim-based German family business Schauenburg International Group, and has technical support centres in the UK, USA and Germany.
