Shimadzu and Proteome Systems Expand North American Marketing Alliance

NEW YORK, March 2 (GenomeWeb News) - Shimadzu Scientific Instruments and Proteome Systems have expanded a broad alliance that they began in 2000, the companies said today.

Under the terms of the extended agreement, Proteome Systems and Shimadzu will co-market the Xcise robotic gel processing platform and ChIP (Chemical Inkjet Printer) technologies, which the companies jointly developed. Previously, Shimadzu was the sole distributor of these products.

In addition, Proteome Systems will expand its presence on the West Coast by showcasing some of its equipment at Shimadzu's Pleasanton, Calif., demonstration facilities. The companies already demonstrate their integrated proteomics technologies at Proteome Systems' Woburn, Mass., facility.
