Baylor to Use Lumera s ProteomicProcessor for Immunology Research

NEW YORK, May 15 (GenomeWeb News) - Lumera said today that Baylor Research Institute has agreed to purchase a beta version of its ProteomicProcessor Biosensor instrument.

 

Jacques Banchereau's immunology research lab at the institute will use the system to measure serum protein levels, Lumera said.  

 

Banchereau said in a statement that the instrument will enable his team to " look at many serum protein levels at the same time without having to label the proteins first."

 

Lumera said that it plans to place five beta units with "highly respected, world-renowned research organizations," and that the Baylor agreement marks the third such placement.
