Life Sciences Startup Touts Aggressive Milestones and Accelerates Strategic Growth Plan with Key Beta Users Including CCRC and Vanderbilt
Chadds Fords, PA. — MOBILion Systems, Inc., a pioneer in new instrumentation for biomarker discovery, diagnostics and therapeutic development, today announced its company highlights for first-half 2020.
MOBILion Systems is commercializing new ion mobility separations technology known as SLIM™, or Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulation. SLIM technology efficiently separates, identifies and analyzes even the most challenging, clinically significant molecules that other instruments fail to detect.
“In the first half of 2020, our teams continue to implement successfully and the first use cases of the SLIM technology are proving to be disruptive,” said Melissa Sherman, CEO of MOBILion Systems. “Despite COVID-19 we have hit all milestones and are being tapped by our beta users who want to use SLIM for COVID research. SLIM’s high resolution unlocks small structural differences that impact the research of the virus, the disease and its potential therapeutics.”
The MOBILion SLIM technology can be integrated with LC-MS workflows to provide more robust analytical information, and for some applications, replace liquid chromatography to provide superior resolution, speed, ease of use and greater instrument uptime. This is the first product being integrated with Agilent’s high resolution QToF mass spectrometer.
“Our incredible progress has fueled recruitment across the entire organization, expanding our employee base by 40%. At the same time, MOBILion continues to raise awareness in the industry with key partnerships, accolades and acknowledgement of game-changing innovation by top influencers,” added Sherman.
Among many milestone accomplishments, MOBILion highlighted continued advances in its product offering, as well as the following 2020 results and highlights:
- Beta launch of first instruments to early adopters at University of Georgia Complex Carbohydrate Research Center and Vanderbilt
- Grew employee base by 40%
- Finalist in the Wiley Analytical Science Award 2021 (voting open until August 28, 2020)
- SelectScience Article Ranks MOBILion’s SLIM Third Among Six Top Technologies at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry Reboot Conference
