European mass spectrometer vendors are transforming their offerings from basic laboratory equipment into effective diagnostic equipment. The European Union’s expanded In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR) for medical devices, set to take effect in May 2022, will have a dramatic effect on the industry.

Manufacturers’ next-generation mass spectrometers are smart and predictive, allowing for continuous system monitoring, automated diagnostics, and integrated troubleshooting routines. Users can monitor the state of the system from anywhere in the laboratory network and perform diagnostics.

Demand is primarily in the areas of research and routine analysis in food safety, environmental monitoring related to the shift to renewable energy, and healthcare to prevent disease and lower death rates.
