Agilent, BioTrove to Integrate, Co-Market Their Mass Spec, Sample-Prep Tools

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — BioTrove and Agilent Technologies will co-market an Agilent mass spectrometer with BioTrove’s sample-preparation systems, the companies said yesterday.
 
Specifically, the firms will co-market Agilent’s 6410 triple quadrupole mass spec with BioTrove’s RapidFire high-throughput sample-prep systems.
 
BioTrove said the RF-MS will be used to screen in high-throughput “previously intractable drug targets, cytochrome P450 inhibition, and other pre-clinical ADME assays."
 
“Together, we are enabling walk-away analysis of lead compounds against valuable targets that would be otherwise impossible to screen, helping biopharma clients meet the challenge of accelerating drug discovery research," BioTrove CEO Al Luderer said in a statement.
