Large Scale Biology Looks to Auction Proteomics-Related Items

NEW YORK, June 9 (GenomeWeb News) - Large Scale Biology will auction off proteomic equipment on June 16, GenomeWeb News has learned.


DoveBid, a capital asset auction and valuation company, announced today that it will webcast the auction of LSBC assets described on sales flyers as "surplus to [the company's] continuing operations." The auction will be held in Germantown, Md., with previews available at that site on June 15, and at Vacaville, Calif., by appointment only, prior to that.


Items for auction include a Micromass Q-TOF Mass Spec; and HPLC Systems manufactured by Perseptive Bio Systems, Micro Tech, and Agilent; as well as liquid handlers, centrifuges, and robotic plate systems.


The company in November announced that it was shutting down its fee-for-service proteomics contract business as part of a repositioning of the firm as a product company.


The auction will be held on June 16 from 9 am until 2 pm Pacific Daylight Time. Details about the event can be found here.
