Agilent and Bruker Extend Their Proteomics Collaboration

NEW YORK, March 10 (GenomeWeb News) - Agilent Technologies and Bruker Daltonics have extended by several years their ion trap mass spectrometry collaboration and liquid chromatography/capillary electrophoresis OEM agreement, the companies said today.

The amended ITMS collaboration "extends the ion trap-development cooperation, the continued supply of mass spectrometry parts and components from Agilent to Bruker Daltonics, and the end-product manufacturing by Bruker Daltonics of each company's respective ITMS product lines," the firms said.


The deal also enables Bruker Daltonics, an operating company of Bruker BioSciences, to continue incorporating Agilent's atmospheric pressure ionization sources into its line of MS products.

The agreement also "facilitates the introduction of each company's ion trap HCT Ultra and XCT Ultra mass spectrometers."

The extended LC/CE OEM agreement, meantime, "provides for Bruker' ongoing distribution of specific Agilent separation products," including its 1100 Series liquid chromatograph and capillary electrophoresis equipment.


Under the extended agreement, Bruker "may also now OEM the current version of Agilent's revolutionary new HPLC-Chip/MS products with the compatible Bruker Daltonics ITMS and FTMS products."
