Agilent s HPLC-Chip and HPLC-Chip Cube and GWC Technologies SPRimager II

Premium

Agilent released its high-performance liquid chromatography HPLC-chip for protein identification last week. The company claims that the microfluidics-based tool will reduce the need for sample size, and will eliminate traditional equipment used in proteomic research via its high-speed productivity. Agilent also introduced the HPLC-Chip Cube interface to load, seal, and read the new chip.


GWC Technologies recently launched its SPRimager II detection system for proteomics analysis, life science and drug-discovery research. The product is designed to make proteomics analysis faster, easier and more reliable, GWC said.

The Madison, WI-based firm claims the product is a complete system for label-free and fluorescent-free analysis of protein and other molecular arrays.
