Highlights included mass spec-focused developments like data-independent acquisition and ion mobility along with platforms including Thermo Fisher's Q Exactive.

With new instruments and workflows able to quantify thousands of proteins in as little as five minutes, 2019 was the year proteomics cracked its throughput problem.

The company's life sciences revenues were up 6 percent while its diagnostics business grew almost 7 percent.

While the approach lost some of its luster after failing to deliver on early hype, technological improvements are revitalizing interest among researchers.

Developed using the center's "industrialized" proteomics workflow, the panel identified patients up to a year before their diagnosis with 89 percent accuracy.

Danaher's life sciences revenues grew 6 percent, while its diagnostics revenues rose nearly 5 percent, including an increase of more than 20 percent at Cepheid.

At the recent ASMS annual meeting, vendors including Bruker, Sciex, and Thermo Fisher Scientific presented new versions of the fast-growing mass spec technique.

Sciex will promote the Polly multi-omics platform in conjunction with its mass spectrometry instruments and differential ion mobility technologies.

New instrument releases at this week's meeting reflected proteomics' increased emphasis on throughput and the continuing spread of ion mobility technology.

The Life Sciences business grew 10 percent year over year, while the Diagnostics business inched up 1 percent.
