NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Sigma-Aldrich today announced an exclusive global distribution agreement with IROA Technologies for the Mass Spectrometry Metabolite Library of Standards (MSMLS).
Under the terms of the agreement, Sigma-Aldrich has acquired worldwide rights to sell MSMLS and its corresponding software, MSMLSDiscovery. Sigma-Aldrich will employ its sales, marketing, and e-commerce expertise to present and distribute the product.
The MSMLS is most commonly used to provide retention times and spectra for key metabolic compounds. It also helps to optimize mass spectrometry analytical protocols and to qualify and quantify mass spectrometry sensitivity and limit of detection.
Merck KGaA is in the process of acquiring Sigma-Aldrich for $17 billion, pending clearance of European anti-trust regulators.
