by | May 9, 2024

Denver, CO – May 1, 2024 – Exum Instruments, a trailblazer in the development of instrumental and software ecosystems for scientific research, has proudly announced a strategic partnership with Edge Scientific, a premier distributor of scientific instruments based in Canada. This pivotal collaboration is set to revolutionize the availability and application of advanced mass spectrometry technologies across North America.

Empowering Research with Cutting-Edge Technology

By integrating Exum’s groundbreaking Massbox, the first of its kind Laser Ablation Laser Ionization Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer (LALI-TOF-MS), with Edge Scientific’s extensive distribution network, this partnership is expected to significantly enhance the capabilities of labs and facilities dedicated to scientific innovation.

Jeff Williams, CEO and CTO of Exum Instruments emphasized the transformative potential of the Massbox: “From my background in cosmochemistry, I got to utilize nearly every analytical instrument in the field… The scientific instrumentation market is 20 years behind. Exum, and the Massbox, are here to bring analytical instrumentation into the modern age and accelerate the development of new materials and products.”

Strategic Collaboration for Enhanced Market Reach

Edge Scientific, known for its commitment to sourcing and supplying state-of-the-art scientific tools, will promote the Massbox across its network in Canada, targeting industries crucial to the country’s research and development sectors such as mining, lithium-ion battery production, and nuclear technology.

Stephen Wood, CEO of Edge Scientific, expressed excitement about the new capabilities the Massbox brings: “When we heard about the Massbox, we understood the value of its capabilities and saw an immediate opportunity to take it to market, particularly for mining, lithium-ion battery, and nuclear applications in Canada.”

Uniting for a Common Vision

The partnership is grounded in a shared commitment to innovation, quality, and service. Both companies aim to leverage their complementary strengths to reduce operational costs in labs and offer new capabilities that will facilitate groundbreaking research and development.

“We are excited and proud for Edge Scientific to represent us and help us grow across various research areas and different market segments. Their reputation for representing quality products and more importantly quality service and support were key factors in choosing them to carry our brand and our technology,” Williams added.

Anticipating Future Collaborations

Exum Instruments and Edge Scientific look forward to their joint presence at upcoming conferences, including the Canadian Materials Science Conference, the Microscopy Society of Canada Meeting, and the International Battery Materials Association Annual Meeting. These events will serve as prime opportunities for the research community to explore firsthand the enhanced analytical power enabled by this collaboration.
