AB Sciex, GeneBio Ink Co-marketing Deal

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – AB Sciex and Geneva Bioinformatics (GeneBio) today said that they will co-market products aimed at improving the ability of scientists to conduct rapid screening of large sets of molecules.

The firms will co-market AB Sciex's mass spectrometers and software applications with GeneBio's SmileMS software for advanced library searching capabilities. They said the GeneBio software complements AB Sciex's Analyst and Cliquid software and is fully compatible with AB Sciex's LC/MS/MS libraries for forensic, pesticide, veterinary, and antibiotics analysis.

The combined technologies will "create new opportunities to improve results in clinical and forensic toxicology, among other fields that can take advantage of these capabilities," Joe Anacleto, VP and GM of the applied markets and clinical research business for AB Sciex, said in a statement.
