NEW YORK, June 19 - Thermo Finnigan and New Objective have partnered to market a combined nanosprayer and ion trap mass spectrometer, the companies announced Tuesday.
The Thermo Finnigan Nanoflow Solutions Kit will integrate Cambridge, Mass.-based New Objective's PicoTip nanosprayer with Thermo Finnigan's LCQTM series of ion trap mass spectrometers.
Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.
"Nanospray offers significant advantages to proteomics researchers, but many have been hesitant to use the technology because of difficulty in setup and continuous control," William Hancock, vice president and general manager of proteomics for Thermo Finnigan, said in a statement. "This new consumables kit will make the technology accessible to a broader population of researchers."
The kit will include New Objective's PicoTips, PicoFrits, and TaperTips. The kit will also include a Thermo Finnigan nanospray mounting system, liquid chromatography columns from Thermo Hypersil, fittings, tools, syringes, and tubing.
