The products are available to clinical laboratories in Europe for general in vitro diagnostic use
Thermo Fisher Scientific has received the in vitro diagnostics device (IVDD) CE mark for its Thermo Scientific Prelude MD HPLC, Endura MD mass spectrometer and ClinQuan MD software.
Available for general in vitro diagnostic use in Europe, clinical laboratories now have access to a high performance liquid chromatograph, mass spectrometer and LC-MS software designed and manufactured for in vitro diagnostic use in analysing patient samples as components of laboratory-developed tests. The products were exhibited at the 2nd Annual European Conference on Clinical Mass Spectrometry, MSACL EU 2015 Conference, Booth 12-13, and at the Salzburg Congress Centre, Salzburg, Austria.
“We’re strongly committed to bringing the advantages of LC-MS to the clinical market,” said Bradley Hart, strategic director, life sciences mass spectrometry, clinical markets, Thermo Fisher. “These three products are part of a larger initiative to make mass spectrometry more useful and accessible to clinicians.”
