Revealing what others leave unseen
MOBILion is a life science tools and diagnostics company developing a unique technology named SLIM™ (Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulation), which allows scientists to characterize mixtures and biological compounds with unprecedented resolution and speed. By allowing scientists to better characterize glycans (sugar molecules), lipids (fat molecules) and other components, the company will help its biopharma customers accelerate drug development and biomarker discovery. The technology was developed at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), by Dick Smith, a world leader in the field of ion mobility and mass spectrometry. Using printed circuit boards outlayed in a serpentine path, the Company, in essence, has been able to compartmentalize very large and expensive form factors into much smaller and less costly technology with superior resolving power.
