As researchers continue to explore uses for DDA and DIA workflows, mass spec advances are enabling both methods to generate larger and more complete data sets.
With the exception of Thermo Fisher Scientific, which released three new instruments, vendors focused mainly on expanded applications of existing platforms.
Announced during the company's recent analyst day, the instrument could mark a major step in mass spectrometry's ongoing move into clinical applications.
While DIA methods like Swath have seen rapid uptake in proteomics, some core labs have struggled to add these workflows to their fee-for-service offerings.
A report from Leerink predicted Thermo Fisher Scientific could launch such a system within the next year, potentially opening up the clinical mass spec market.
Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are among those pushing ion mobility spectrometry as a tool to boost complex biological sample analysis.
Overall growth was driven by the company's diagnostics segment, which rose 11 percent, while life sciences improved 6 percent
The company has made significant progress implementing large-scale discovery workflows though challenges remain in terms of translation to the clinic.
The communication concerns a software defect that can cause several of the company's mass spectrometry instruments to incorrectly assign results to samples.
The Stoller Biomarker Discovery Centre, funded by the UK's Medical Research Council, recently opened to develop mass spec-based research for varied diseases.
The Hill reports President Donald Trump issued an executive directing federal agencies to cut the number of board and advisory committees they have.
The New York Times reports that researchers are combining tools to more quickly develop crops to feed a growing population and cope with shifting climates.
