Robert (Bob) Finnigan

1st Sep 2022

It is with the greatest sadness that we note the passing Robert (Bob) Finnigan on 13th August 2022.

Bob was not only a pioneer of GC quadrupole MS, but was responsible for combining it with a computer! He commercialised his instrument through his company Finnigan Instruments, which was later acquired by the company we all know today as Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Our condolences and thoughts go to Bob's family at this difficult time.

Dr Jackie Mosely

Chair, British Mass Spectrometry Society
