PhenomeX Meteor Chips for IsoSpark Platform

PhenomeX has launched its Meteor chips for the IsoSpark proteomics platform. With less than 30 minutes of hands-on time and a single pipette for sample loading, the Meteor chip eliminates the need for the laborious proteomics workflow of traditional proteomic methods, PhenomeX said. A single full run (four chips) accommodates 80 sample wells in triplicate. The chip will be launched with an initial 10-plex panel, capable of generating 2,400 data points per run, the company added.
