Max Planck Proteomics Lab to Use Proxeon's Nanoscale LC Systems

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb news) – The Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry has installed new nanoscale liquid chromatography systems from Proxeon in order to standardize the performance of its LC-MS tool shed, Proxeon said today. 
The Easy-nLC systems will replace the LC instruments currently installed in MPI's Department of Proteomics and Signal Transduction, Proxeon said.
Matthias Mann, director of the lab, told GenomeWeb Daily News in an e-mail today that the institute had previously purchased other n-LC systems from Proxeon in “the last few years.”
Mann said in a statement that the lab has nine high resolution LC-MS systems in use and plans further expansion in the coming year.
Proxeon said that the Easy-nLC systems and its nano ES ion sources are used exclusively with Thermo Fisher Scientific mass spectrometers at the lab.
