Tornado Medical Systems and Arjae Spectral Merge to Create Tornado Spectral Systems


10/1/2012 11:56:45 AM

TORONTO and ITHACA, N.Y., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The merger of Tornado Medical Systems (TMS) and Arjae Spectral Enterprises (ASE) has been approved by the shareholders of both companies. The new entity, Tornado Spectral Systems, unites a common business culture and complimentary intellectual property and will continue to lead the industry with innovative optical spectroscopy products for the Defense & Security, Environmental, Biomedical, and Industrial markets. Conventional optical dispersive spectroscopy has been constrained by the trade-off between light throughput and spectral resolution. Tornado Spectral's proprietary High Throughput Virtual Slit (HTVS) technology overcomes this trade-off to deliver high resolution and high throughput simultaneously. Tornado is also developing ground-breaking OCT (optical coherence tomography) on chip technology.

"This is an exciting time in our evolution," said Dr. Bradley Schmidt, CEO of Tornado Spectral Systems. "The combined intellectual property and technical expertise of both companies creates a powerful step forward not only in optical spectroscopy, but also, the burgeoning field of nanophotonics."

"Since the debut of our first generation products at the 2012 Photonics West show, we have gained critical acclaim and market traction from the many companies that have done the comparative analysis of our instruments with those costing much, much more," said Ed Albe, Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

The new firm, Tornado Spectral Systems, is headquartered at 555 Richmond Street West, Suite 705, P.O. Box 218, Toronto, ON, M5V 3B1, Canada, +1 416.361.3444 and has a United States wholly owned subsidiary located at 2359 North Triphammer Road, Ithaca, New York, 14850, USA, +1 607.379.6185.
