December 2012

Fasmatech joined the BSMS 80/60 Symposium at the University of Warwick to celebrate the birthdays and distinguished careers of Prof. Keith Jennings and Prof. Jim Scrivens.

This has been an excellent event organized by the British Society for Mass Spectrometry with an impressive list of speakers from academia and industry. The speakers gave an overview of the latest achievement in instrumentation development, and the established and emerging applications of mass spectrometry. Native mass spectrometry is of growing importance, which demands high mass capabilities of atmospheric-vacuum interfaces, mass analyzers and ion detectors. This has been one of the research priorities of Fasmatech in the last few years.

Dr. Raptakis, Fasmatech’s CEO is a Warwick alumnus (PhD in Chemistry Department 1992-1996). In particular Prof. Jennings has been instrumental in his getting into mass spectrometry more that 20 years ago.

Fasmatech published two posters in the conference:
