Genomic Solutions Signs Two New Customers for Proteomics Services

NEW YORK, Dec 20 – Genomic Solutions said Wednesday it had reached agreements to provide proteomics services to Duke University and the Josephine Ford Cancer Center, bringing the total number of contracts the company has received to 25 since opening the proteomics facility in September.

A Genomic Solutions spokeswoman declined to give the terms of the contracts. She said that research contracts generally take one day to several years to complete, generating revenues from $1,000 to well over $250,000.

Genomic Solutions' proteomics facility is designed to offer full service proteomics work on a fee-for-service basis. The center uses its own instruments, software and comsumables, including its Investigator Proteomic System, coupled with mass spectrometry machines from Applied Biosystems, MicroMass, and ThermoQuest.

The company is based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
