Markes International Limited is a specialist manufacturer of analytical thermal desorption instrumentation and associated sampling equipment. The company's comprehensive portfolio of products is designed to automate and enhance the measurement of trace level volatile and semi-volatile organic chemicals (VOCs and SVOCs) in real-world samples.
Markes has also the widest range of thermal desorption consumable products on the market; the company is widely regarded as being the World leader in thermal desorption technology. ALMSCO International (A Division of Markes International) was formed in 2008 to manufacture and develop a time-of-flight mass spectrometer for GC. We had realised that existing TOF mass spectrometers didn’t make the most of the inherent advantages of TOF for GC, so set about designing an instrument from first principles that incorporated the latest developments in the field. The result was our BenchTOF-dx, which is now being used by laboratories around the world with great success for all sorts of applications.
