Inproteo Subsidiary Prosolia Licenses Electrospray Technology to Thermo Electron

NEW YORK, Sept. 7 (GenomeWeb News) - Prosolia, a subsidiary of Inproteo, today announced that it has agreed to license its ElectroSonicSpray Ionization technology to Thermo Electron. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.


The ESSI technology is a proprietary ionization technique that enables ionization of large molecules such as protein and protein complexes, while retaining their conformation and function, Prosolia said.


Ian Jardine, Thermo Electron's chief technology officer, said in an official statement that Thermo would likely commercially implement the technology in early 2005 to complement the current technique of electrospray ionization and MALDI for analyzing large biological molecules.
