Cetac Technologies Inc. was founded in 1985 in Ames, Iowa.
The original company logo is given at right. Note the distinctive overlay of Bessel functions in the logo.
Cetac had offices in Ames, Iowa and Omaha, Nebraska from 1989-1991
1989 - Introduction of the Liquid Sample Introduction Products (U-5000 Ultrasonic Nebulizer) *designed by John Sutton
In 1991, CETAC moved their office to 5600 S. 42nd Street in Omaha Nebraska.
1993 - Introduction of ASX-500 Autosampler
1995 - Introduction of U5000AT+ Ultrasonic Nebulizer and the ASX-100 Micro-Autosampler.
1997 - Introduction of the ADX-500 Auto-Dilution System
1998 - The second generation autosamper was introduced, the ASX-510 Autosampler. The SDS-550 Sample Dilution System was also introduced this year.
CETAC Technologies was sold in 2000 to SD Acquisition Inc., a company owned by Mr. Stephan “Steve” F. Dwyer. Mr. Dwyer was an early CETAC investor, and the company (dba CETAC Technologies) remained in Omaha, NE
2010 - The ASXpress Rapid Sample Introduction System was released
CETAC Technologies was sold in 2013 to Teledyne. Company operations continue in Omaha, NE as Teledyne CETAC Technologies.
In 2014, after 4 years of a development and co-branding partnership with Photon Machines, they became part of the family.
John Sutton played an instrumental role in product designer for CETAC. Some of the noteworthy products John developed are:
- USN Commercialization
- Innovative autosampler design (tube in tube) for sample uptake, mechanical movement and overall system ruggedness. Basis of current ASX-500 series, known as the industry standard.
- Direct Injection Nebulizer. First commercial system for total sample consumption.
- Novel design for micro autosampler ASX-100 with moving circular tray and stationary sample probe. Key to geology and semiconductor market entrance.
