The researchers found high reproducibility across quantitative proteomics workflows including SRM, PRM, and DIA performed on five different instruments.
While most firms launched new mass spec systems, the larger focus was on developing and implementing the larger workflows surrounding these instruments.
Funded by $10 million in seed money by the Australian Cancer Research Foundation, the center has purchased six Sciex TripleTOF 6600 mass spectrometers.
Under the agreement, PBI will promote its pressure cycling technology sample preparation systems with Sciex's mass spec instruments and Swath proteomics workflow.
The approach could allow for unbiased detection of protein modifications with greater sensitivity than is possible using conventional shotgun mass spec.
The company plans to offer the immuno-MRM assays as kits covering sample prep and protein digestion as well as immuno-enrichment of specific peptides.
The deal allows Sciex to sell Advaita licenses of iPathwayGuide as part of the OneOmics project, which seeks to tear down the informatics barriers between different omics disciplines.
The deal provides Sciex with the rights to commercialize immune-MRM technology developed by Amanda Paulovich's laboratory.
Sciex announced the broad commercial rollout of its OneOmics collaboration with Illumina, while Thermo Fisher added proteomics analysis to its cloud platform.
The conference was relatively light on new mass spec launches, with many vendors focusing instead on more targeted applications of existing technology.
