Advion, Applied Biosystems Ink Mass Spectrometry Co-Promote Deal

This story has been corrected from a previous version, which misstates Advion's location.

NEW YORK, Sept. 2 (GenomeWeb News) - Advion BioSciences said today that it has signed a non-exclusive agreement with Applera's Applied Biosystems unit to co-promote their electrospray mass spectrometry products.

Advion said it would also ensure the compatibility of its NanoMate 100 automated chip-based nanoelectrospray system with Applied Biosystems' mass spectrometers, including the API 3000 and 4000 systems, the 4000 QTrap system, and the QStar XL Hybrid system.

Advion, of Ithaca, NY, will provide installation, support, and service for its systems.

Financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed.
