About Microsaic Systems

 

Microsaic Systems plc is a high technology company developing chip-based, bench-top mass spectrometry ("MS") instruments that are designed to improve the efficiency of Pharma R&D.  MS is an analytical technique of choice for biochemists across many industry sectors.

 

Microsaic aims to bring routine MS analysis to the pharmaceutical scientist, providing powerful methods of analysis to enable earlier decision making relating to product identification, purity and bioactivity.

 

The Company is working with established global companies in preparative and purification science with expertise in Pharma and life sciences to co-develop new, integrated and optimised, application-specific, solutions to improve productivity in the development of small molecule and novel biologic (peptides, antibodies) medicines.

 

The Microsaic 4000 MiD®, single quadrupole, is the world's smallest MS system, retaining the functionality of larger conventional MS systems, is easier to use by non-specialists, consumes less energy and has lower running costs. The Company is also developing new MS systems, based on its patented chip technologies, to address further areas of emerging need in Pharma R&D.

 

Microsaic Systems was established in 2001 by a team including founders from Imperial College London, and was admitted to AIM in 2011 (ticker: MSYS).
