Thermo Fisher Scientific Wins Three R&D 100 Awards Category: Corporate

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced that three of its analytical instruments were included on the R&D Magazine list of the year’s top 100 technology innovations. Known as the “Oscars of Innovation,” the R&D 100 recognises the best new products across industry, academia and government-sponsored research.


“Innovation is a key component of our growth strategy and critical to fulfilling our mission, which is to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer,” said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The R&D 100 awards recognise our commitment to technology development and our focus on giving customers the tools they need to achieve their own goals for innovation and productivity.”


The award-winning products are

• Thermo Scientific Delta Ray, an isotope ratio infrared spectrometer that enables scientists to monitor volcanos, greenhouse gases, plant ecology, and carbon capture and storage, among other applications for CO2 analysis. The Delta Ray spectrometer gives scientists real-time results at the sample source, eliminating bottlenecks created when transporting samples from the field to the lab.

• Thermo Scientific RIIDEye X, a handheld radiation isotope identifier designed to detect gamma and neutron radiation sources and provide information on location, type and quantity. The RIIDEye X delivers fast, accurate readings in harsh operating conditions, making it ideal for military personnel, first responders and field-based researchers.

• Thermo Scientific Dionex ERS 500, the first electrolytically regenerated, high-capacity membrane suppressor that eliminates the need for chemical reagents during ion chromatography analysis. Designed for use in environmental, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical markets, the ERS 500 suppressor is more pressure tolerant than previous technologies, a feature critical to long-term reliability.
