Charles River to Use Advion s NanoMate System for Proteomics Research

NEW YORK, March 2 (GenomeWeb News) - Charles River Proteomic Services (CRPS) has purchased Advion Biosciences' NanoMate 100 protein identification technology, the companies said today.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The NanoMate 100 is an automated chip-based nanoelectrospray system for peptide mass fingerprinting. Advion said the system also offers capabilities for identifying biomarkers and protein-protein interactions.

John Pirro, general manager of CRPS, said the company is "currently exploring" the technology's performance "with respect to biomarker validation/discovery, post translational modifications of proteins, and increased de novo sequencing capabilities."
