Feb 2009
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. of Waltham, Mass., has constructed a 12,000-sq-ft facility in Reinach, Switzerland, to house its analytical instrument operations and to consolidate the product lines of Flux Instruments and Spectronex obtained by its subsidiary SwissAnalytic Group. A 3200-sq-ft laboratory is included to provide hands-on experience with new mass spectrometer and other instrument operations.


GLOSSARY
mass spectrometer
A device used to measure the masses and relative concentrations of atoms and molecules. It utilizes the Lorentz force generated by external magnetic field on a moving charged particle, in which the particles are deflected by the magnetic field according to their masses. Once deflected, the particles are detected and recorded electrically to provide a mass spectrum of the input beam of ions.
