Protein Discovery Awarded Phase I SBIR Grant for Serum Fractionation

NEW YORK, March 8 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institutes of Health has awarded Protein Discovery a Phase I SBIR Grant to help the company develop a fractionation system that prepares human serum for high-throuput mass-spectrometry analysis.

 

Protein Discovery's system "is compatible with all major MALDI mass spectrometers and can be automated, so we are excited about the tremendous value this system will provide to organizations involved in proteomics research and biomarker discovery," said president and CEO Chuck Witkowski in a statement.

 

The amount of the grant was not disclosed, though Phase I SBIR grants are typically $100,000.
