Microsaic Systems plc is a high technology company developing and marketing next generation mass spectrometry (MS) instruments for the analysis of gaseous, liquid and solid samples.
Microsaic has successfully miniaturised mass spectrometry by integrating the key MS components onto patented chip technologies called ionchip®, spraychip® and vac-chip. Microsaic’s MS products retain the speed and sensitivity of larger, conventional MS systems but are substantially smaller, lighter, consume less energy and have lower running costs. The Company’s first product, the Microsaic 3500 MiD®, was launched in January 2011 and is the world’s smallest MS system.
Microsaic Systems plc was established in 2001 to develop miniaturized MS instruments based on Micro-Electrical-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) originating at the highly regarded Optical and Semiconductor Devices Group at Imperial College London. Microsaic has subsequently established a large portfolio of 88 patents, of which 36 are granted. The Company has been based at headquarters in Woking, UK since September 2004 and was admitted to AIM, a market of the London Stock Exchange, in April 2011 (ticker: MSYS).
The Microsaic 4000 MiD® is the world’s only integrated chip-based mass detector to utilise Micro-Electrical-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology....
