NEW YORK, Jan. 25 - Roche and Bruker Daltonics will co-develop a high-throughput mass-spectrometry system projected to process more than 10,000 proteins a day, Bruker said on Friday.
The collaboration will accelerate Roche's proteomics research by speeding protein analysis, said Bruker Daltonics.
Roche has already bought 14 of Bruker's MALDI/TOF protein-analysis systems, including an UltraFlex TOF/TOF system, which was installed in December 2001.
Roche also has an option to exchange at least 10 of the MALDI/TOF systems for Ultra-Flex TOF/TOF systems, which it plans to do. The pharmaceutical company may also acquire additional systems from Bruker this year.
Financial details of the collaboration were not disclosed.
