For the three months ended April 30, the company, which has a joint-venture agreement with Life Technologies' Applied Biosystems on mass specs, said its Analytical Technologies revenues fell to $87 million, down from $118 million in Q2 2008.

Included is a patent for a microfluidic device and one for an ETD method.

The company has bought the mass spec and ion source company, expanding its portfolio and R&D operations.

Using their method, which combines the advantages of in-gel and in-solution approaches, the researchers identified what they said is "to our knowledge … the largest reported proteome in any single experiment."

The company will work with the university to develop a mass spectrometry research center.

In a competitive field where deals linking two mass-spec technologies from different vendors are unusual, the partnership could help Bio-Rad make relevant a technology that has failed to capture the interest of the research community.

The Challenge Grants program seeks swift applicants in targeted areas, including genomics, biomarkers, ethics, and others.

Some researchers, like Ruedi Aebersold, claim that because tools such as mass specs are in a "perpetual discovery mode, the high-performance application of the [the tools] will remain in specialized labs."

In the first part of a two-part interview, Mann discusses the state of technology in proteomics and what still needs to get done for proteomics to cross to the clinical side.

It was not immediately clear whether PerkinElmer would divest all of its proteomics assets or retain a portion of them, though it described them as “discontinued operations” during its fourth-quarter earnings statement.
