Sigma-Genosys Buys LC-MS System from Novatia for Oligo QC

NEW YORK, July 28 (GenomeWeb News) - Sigma-Genosys, a division of Sigma-Aldrich, has purchased a liquid chromatography mass spectrometry system from Novatia of Princeton, NJ, the company said yesterday.


Sigma will use Novatia's LC-MS system to analyze the quality of synthetic oligonucleotides and peptides.


The instrument allows users to obtain high-quality data for synthetic oligonucleotides over 50 bases in length and for synthetic peptides, according to the companies.
