Sciex

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 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.
