Applied Biosystems/MDS SCIEX and Dionex Corporation Announce an Alliance to Jointly Develop and Market Analytical Solutions

Applied Biosystems Group, an Applera Corporation business, together with its joint venture partner MDS Sciex, a division of MDS Inc. and Dionex Corporation announced the establishment of an alliance to develop IC-MS/MS and LC-MS/MS solutions for emerging market opportunities. The first jointly-developed solution focuses on the analysis of Perchlorate, an environmental contaminant that is currently receiving international attention. Perchlorate, a contaminant that has been used widely in industrial and military applications, is a powerful thyroid toxin that has been monitored in the drinking water supply in many states across the U.S. and found in foods and beverages globally.

Joint work performed by Applied Biosystems/MDS SCIEX and Dionex has already been incorporated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the recent development of EPA Method 332.0 Determination of Perchlorate in Drinking Water by Ion Chromatography with Suppressed Conductivity and Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry.

Future projects are expected to focus on coupling Dionex high-performance ion chromatography and liquid chromatography technologies and chemistries with Applied Biosystems/MDS SCIEX state of the art mass spectrometers to generate analytical solutions required for the accurate and sensitive measurement of a wide range of target analytes.
