Abstract:
Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ZMS)(FRANKFURT:W1I) today announced a new and proprietary solid-state 336nm DPSS laser designed to replace nitrogen gas lasers currently used in a wide range of mass spectrometry applications. Zecotek's 336nm DPSS laser offers both superior performance and product lifetime characteristics as compared to existing lasers used in mass spectrometry based on the MALDI-TOF technique.

Zecotek Introduces New Solid-State Laser for Mass Spectrometry

VANCOUVER, BC, Canada | Posted on June 11th, 2008

MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry is rapidly becoming the most widely used tool at the forefront of bio-molecular analysis. MALDI-TOF is also an important tool in quality control, due in part to its high throughput capabilities and ease of automation.

"We have an opportunity to meet the growing demand of MALDI-TOF laser systems," said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek. "Our 336nm DPSS laser has been specifically designed to replace the cumbersome and shorter life span nitrogen gas lasers used in legacy systems. Zecotek is in the position to offer a major component to OEMs for their new generation MALDI-TOF systems. This is another excellent example of Zecotek's strength in the innovation and development of leading edge photonic technologies."

Zecotek's new solid-state 336nm DPSS laser program is based in the Company's Singapore laboratories and patent applications are in preparation. Under Zecotek's joint manufacturing agreement, Fujikura Ltd. has first rights to manufacture the new device.
