ASMS

While there were a few new mass spectrometry instrument introductions, vendors focused primarily on software and sample separation advances.

The company is working with German informatics firm MSAID to incorporate deep learning into mass spec analysis and with Biognosys on tools for quantitative work.

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

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

Major releases were relatively sparse at ASMS as many vendors focused instead on the development of applications and workflows for their existing platforms.

With the exception of Thermo Fisher Scientific, which released three new instruments, vendors focused mainly on expanded applications of existing platforms.

Richard Smith, director of proteomics at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, has been named recipient of the 2013 Award for a Distinguished Contribution in Mass Spectrometry by the American Society for Mass Spectrometry.

The American Society for Mass Spectrometry has named University of Wisconsin-Madison researcher Josh Coon winner of its Klaus Biemann Medal.

Swiss proteomics firm Biognosys and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich researcher Reudi Aebersold have received CHF 1.5 million ($1.57 million) from the Swiss Commission for Technology and Innovation to bring hyper-reaction monitoring mass spectrometry, or HRM-MS, to ma
