TORONTO and ITHACA, N.Y., Oct. 2, 2012 — Tornado Medical Systems of Ithaca and Arjae Spectral Enterprises of Toronto have merged into optical spectroscopy products entity Tornado Spectral Systems, the companies announced Monday.
The new firm — headquartered in Toronto, with a wholly owned US subsidiary in Ithaca — unites common business culture and complementary intellectual property. It will continue to provide its optical spectroscopy products to the biomedical, defense and security, industrial and environmental markets.
“The combined intellectual property and technical expertise of both companies creates a powerful step forward not only in optical spectroscopy but also the burgeoning field of nanophotonics,” said Dr. Bradley Schmidt, CEO of Tornado Spectral Systems.
Tornado Spectral’s proprietary high-throughput virtual slit technology overcomes the constraints of the trade-off between light throughput and spectral resolution to deliver high resolution and high throughput simultaneously.
