Cascadion SM Clinical Analyzer

Introducing a complete solution for the clinical laboratory—accuracy that’s easy-to-use

The Thermo Scientific Cascadion SM Clinical Analyzer, the first all-in-one LC-MS/MS solution designed to meet the needs of clinical laboratories, was introduced at EuroMedLab 2017 in Athens, Greece on June 12. Read the press release. Our fresh vision for fully automated liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) testing was cultivated by listening to our customers. They asked for a complete solution that was accurate, easy-to-use, and designed for the clinical laboratory. Together, we can bring the accuracy of LC-MS/MS to the clinical laboratory—leading the charge by evolving clinical testing beyond anything available today.

Introducing the Cascadion SM Clinical Analyzer

Several assays are in development including 25OH Vitamin D, Total Testosterone and a panel of Immunosuppressant drugs. These will be launched once appropriate regulatory requirements for each country or region have been fulfilled. Our future development pipeline may include additional tests for therapeutic drug monitoring, drugs of abuse and endocrinology.
