About ATB Analytics LLC
ATB Analytics LLC traces it's roots back to the former company Molecular Analytics LLC, which was founded in 1996. Molecular Analytics was a world leader in the design, manufacture and sales of Ion Mobility Spectroscopy (IMS) based instrumentation, as well as the Shur-Shot@.
The assets of Molecular Analytics were purchased by Particle Measuring Systems (PMS) in 2004. In 2007, PMS made the decision to divest itself of the Shur-Shot product line. ATB Analytics was formed, in part, to take advantage of this opportunity. ATB Analytics is now the sole manufacturer of the Shur-Shot and replcement sensors.
The Shur-Shot was originally developed in the early '90s by the group that eventually formed Molecular Analytics, utilizing technology licensed from Exxon.
Tad Bacon, the President and founder of ATB Analytics, was the former Vice President of Engineering for Molecular Analytics and was involved in the initial development of the Shur-Shot.
