Company Description

Founded in 1985, Fluid Management Systems, Inc. designs, manufactures, and supports analytical instruments used by scientists to perform extraction, cleanup, fractionation, and concentration of samples prior to chemical analysis. Some of the industries that rely on our sample preparation systems are: agricultural, chemical, clinical, coatings, cosmetics, energy, environmental, flavors, food, life science, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, tobacco, toxicology, and utilities. Automated sample preparation systems from FMS are designed to replace outdated, labor-intensive techniques that hinder laboratory productivity. Our Total Sample Preparation systems improve the efficiency of both laboratory personnel and expensive instrumentation. Our automated sample preparation systems allow laboratory personnel to reduce costs, shorten sample turn around time, and improve the quality and consistency of their results by eliminating the variability inherent with manual sample preparation methods. All FMS consumables are guaranteed and manufactured in Class 10,000 and Class 1000 cleanroom environments and both our instruments and consumables are proudly made in the US. We support our sample preparation systems with an ever-increasing network of field sales, service, and applications expertise. FMS systems are sold worldwide by direct sales force, independent representatives, and distributors.
