The market of mass spectrometers is booming, and domestic instruments are still not awesome. With the development of technology and the continuous expansion and deepening of research fields, the application of mass spectrometers is becoming more and more common, and the pace of updating their products is also accelerating. Especially in the past two years, the major mass spectrometer manufacturers have launched new mass spectrometry products at an amazing speed. In the first half of 2010, the major mass spectrometry companies launched more than a dozen new products. High throughput, high sensitivity, high resolution, low detection limit, miniaturization and portability are the main development directions of mass spectrometer

mass spectrometer, as a high-end scientific research instrument, is more and more widely used in Colleges and universities. China, as an important demand market for mass spectrometer in the world, has also attracted more and more attention from businesses. The rapid growth in the domestic market for mass spectrometer has not divided this gospel into its own enterprises. Foreign brands in the field of scientific research are monopolized. Domestic instruments have no choice but to learn from others, but they still can't get rid of the embarrassing situation

mass spectrometer has a wide range of applications, involving food and environment, which makes enterprises form a huge market competitive environment, human health, drugs, national security, and other fields related to analysis and testing. It has become one of the most promising analytical instruments. In recent years, the global market demand growth rate has exceeded 10%, and the demand growth in the Chinese market is far from or even greater than this proportion. Especially at present, human health, environmental safety and rational utilization of energy are the prominent problems faced by countries all over the world. Mass spectrometer is also particularly favored because of its accurate qualitative and quantitative ability in the analysis and detection process

however, this increasingly prosperous market has not brought much revenue to our domestic instrument manufacturers. It is understood that at present, China's medium and high-end mass spectrometry is completely dependent on imports, that is to say, we prefer foreign brands, and China's market has also become the target of merchants in other countries. This is really not a small profit. The cheapest one made in China costs hundreds of thousands, and each imported one costs almost 1million to 5million or more. Tens of millions of dollars are needed for an optical mass spectrometer in a 211 project university,. But how much of these tens of millions is the expenditure of purchasing domestic products? Not much. Do Peking University and Tsinghua University have domestic mass spectrometers? It is estimated that it is unlikely. What about other colleges and universities as scientific research bases? I'm afraid it won't add up to more than a dozen. So who created this more than 10% demand, Agilent? Thermo Fisher? Or Walters? In short, it is rarely the turn of Chinese brands

in fact, the development of organic mass spectrometers in China has begun in the 1960s. Both Beijing analytical instrument factory and the instrument factory of Chinese Academy of sciences have launched their own chemical analysis mass spectrometers and gc/ms. However, domestic instruments are inferior to foreign products in terms of performance and price, so they gradually lose the market. In order to make a living, these state-owned instrument factories have gradually evolved from independent design and production to foreign product assembly and entrusted maintenance, resulting in the loss of technical force and equipment. Although some universities and scientific research institutions have successfully developed MALDI-TOFMS and other instruments, they have not been transformed into commodities

in this way, the complete elimination of domestic brands in the mass spectrometry industry of ditiao steel will lead to the situation that shuzhongwu may reduce the trade volume of 5.6 billion. We admit that there is a gap between our technology and foreign technology in the field of high-end analytical instruments, but the culprit that leads to the lack of interest of domestic instruments is that the data obtained from Chinese equipment cannot be recognized internationally. The author is not sure whether this is an academic barrier, nor what kind of tricks these international instrument and equipment manufacturers have played. In short, domestic instruments are "useless" has become a fact. The painstaking research results of several generations can only be shared in the end. This is not only an embarrassment of the situation, but also a tragedy in the 5 Hushan Industrial Park in Qingkou Investment Zone, Minhou. Although domestic mass spectrometry equipment also occupies a small part of the education market, most of it is not for scientific research, but for teaching and demonstration, and its role is not much stronger than that of the model
