“This integrated company will be able to shape the future of mass spectrometry in ways far greater than what we have already achieved,” said Laura Lauman, the company’s president, in a statement. According to Lauman, bringing the former joint venture together will enable the company to “keep pace with the dynamic needs of the life science industry.”

The company provides instrumentation, software and services used in a number of life science applications, including drug discovery and development, disease studies and food and environmental safety. These include integrated LC–MS–MS platforms for small molecule analysis, contaminant identification and biomarker validation, as well as MALDI TOF/TOF systems for protein biomarker discovery.
