NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Thermo Fisher Scientific has opened a new facility housing analytical instrument operations and a demonstration center in Reinach, Switzerland, near Basel, the firm said today.
The new facility consolidates the Flux Instruments and Spectronex product lines that Thermo Fisher obtained through its acquisition of SwissAnalytic Group in January 2007. That acquisition added a variety of mass spectrometry, chromatography, and surface science instrumentation products to Thermo Fisher’s offerings.
The new 12,000-square-foot facility includes a 3,200 square-foot demonstration lab that contains new Thermo Fisher mass spectrometers, other lab instruments, and consumables. Customers will be able to work with Thermo Fisher’s technical experts at the lab to gain hands-on experience with the equipment.
