Hiden Analytical celebrate 40 years of cutting-edge spectroscopy
Mar 18 2022
Hiden Analytical are celebrating 40th years of excellence in the field of mass spectrometry. Hiden have thrived thanks to their focus on customer and application focussed innovation, all made possible by their unique and successful company culture which has made them renown across the globe. The Hiden team consists of more than 120 scientists, engineers, technicians and operations specialists based at their headquarters in England.
The Hiden story began In 1982 in Warrington, in the northwest of England, when they concentrated on developing and manufacturing quadrupole mass spectrometers for vacuum processing in the semiconductor industry. Building on this success new products were developed and applied to different application areas, early innovations included the design of real-time gas analysis systems. Hiden expansion started with the introduction of their direct external ion measurement systems for plasma process diagnostics, this was followed by secondary ion monitoring for surface characterisation (the SIMS technique). In recent years Hiden have introduced direct analytical systems for dissolved species in environmental and electrochemical applications while improving system portability. The Hiden pQA is a state-of-the-art portable quadrupole analyser for environmental studies. Hiden’s product portfolio now includes systems for the five main application areas of residual gas analysis: gas analysis, catalysis and thermal analysis, plasma characterisation and surface analysis. Hiden offer a bespoke design service to facilitate client interactive development of solutions to meet their individual needs.
In 1992 Hiden entered the field of microgravimetric gas sorption measurement working with the University of Birmingham, and sister-company, Hiden Isochema, was founded to manufacture these products. In 1996 Hiden inc., first opened its doors to provide sales and service support for Hiden’s complete product range in the USA, with offices established across the nation. In 2019 Hiden Europe GmbH was founded, providing a sales and application based technical support for German and Austrian customers. Today, Hiden are well represented across all of Europe, Asia and the Americas. by a local presence in many nations across the globe. Hiden host websites in French, German, Spanish, UK and US English along with their representatives’ websites in Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
Hiden are not resting on their laurels, further expansion which includes new clean room facilities for precision assembly, a new vacuum /mechanical assembly suite and further office space at Hiden’s UK headquarters is planned to cope with higher levels of demand.
