Our History - 50 Years of Innovation

SCIEX has led the field of mass spectrometry for 50 years. From the moment we launched the first ever commercially successful triple quad in 1981, we have developed groundbreaking technologies and solutions that influence life-changing research and outcomes. Our broad portfolio of scientific analytical tools include innovative instrument systems, intuitive software, pre-packaged methods and chemistry reagents -- all of which are part of workflows that reduce complexity and accelerate results.
Sciex was founded in 1970. We delivered the first commercial triple quadrupole tandem spectrometry instrument in 1981. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2020. In 2023, we launched the Intabio ZT system, an industry first system to fully integrate icIEF-UV and mass spectrometry. And also opened the Echo MS Center of Excellence.
