Thermo Fisher Scientific Cambridge Facility Wins The Queens Award for Enterprise in 2009
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced that its Cambridge facility has been awarded a Queens Award for Enterprise 2009 in the Outstanding Innovation category for the iCAP 6000 Series ICP-OES instrument. This award, the most prestigious for UK industry, recognizes the iCAP 6000 as one of the year’s most outstanding technical innovations. The Thermo Scientific iCAP 6000 Series ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma, Optical Emission Spectrometry) instruments are used in laboratories to detect and accurately measure low levels of toxic or pollutant elements in a wide range of samples.
The Queens Award for Enterprise recognizes the novel design of the iCAP 6000 which delivers outstanding performance, ease of use and low cost of ownership, all in a uniquely compact instrument. Specifically developed for environmental, metallurgical, petrochemical and food safety applications, this compact instrument provides users in laboratories with increased analysis speed, exceptional stability and trace (parts per billion) level detection capabilities up to five times lower than comparable older designs.
The Thermo Fisher Scientific team in Cambridge started work on the design of the iCAP 6000 in 2002 and has been manufacturing the product and distributing it world wide since 2006. Since its launch, the iCAP 6000 has captured a significant share of global markets in a number of important applications segments.
