NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Advion said late on Thursday it has named Government Scientific Source as a US government distributor for the company's new expression CMS compact mass spec.
GSS has approved General Services Administration pricing for the instrument and "will facilitate the most efficient purchase of the CMS for these organizations," Ithaca, NY-based Advion said.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"We have experienced strong demand across a range of government organizations for our new mass spec, and we needed a strong incumbent government purchasing partner to execute these opportunities," David Patteson, president and CEO of Advion, said in a statement. "A respected partner with a broad range of life science products, along with GSA pricing, is vital for Advion to serve the United States government market."
Advion provides flow chemistry systems and microfluidic products to improve the performance of mass specs. During the year, it has signed distribution deals covering the expression CMS compact mass spec in Australia, Israel, India, and China.
GSS provides analytical chemistry equipment and consumables to federal, state, and municipal government laboratories and is based in Reston, Va.
