MassTech Pens AP-MALDI Deal with ABI

NEW YORK, May 28 (GenomeWeb News) - MassTech of Columbia, Md. announced yesterday that it will collaborate with Applied Biosystems to develop an atmospheric pressure MALDI source that will interface with ABI's 4000 Q-TRAP mass spectrometer.

 

The AP-MALDI source will support ABI's standard 100-well plate format, as well as MassTech's 96-well plate format.

 

MassTech already has similar collaborations with Bruker Daltonics, Thermo Electron, and Agilent Technologies.
