NEW YORK – Cellenion said Tuesday that it has entered a comarketing agreement with Bruker around tools for single-cell proteomics experiments.
Under the agreement, the companies will pair Lyon, France-based Cellenion's cellenOne single-cell isolation and dispensing system with Bruker's timsTOF SCP mass spectrometer to enable label-free single-cell proteomics workflows.
Cellenion's cellenOne system provides high-throughput image-based dispensing of individual cells from cell suspensions and precision dispensing of reagents to automate and miniaturize sample preparation prior to single-cell analyses, while Bruker's timsTOF SCP is specifically designed for mass spec analyses of extremely small samples, down to the single-cell level.
"We believe our expertise in precision dispensing and platform technology … and Bruker’s expertise in developing mass spectrometers such as the timsTOF SCP for single-cell proteomics are a perfect match," Holger Eickhoff, CEO of Cellenion, said in a statement.
"This partnership of unique technologies provides our users with the ability to simplify and standardize single-cell 4D-proteomics workflows," said Rohan Thakur, executive vice president of life sciences mass spectrometry at Bruker. "This is important because it allows researchers to contrast knowledge learned from decades of bulk proteomics to new discoveries being made in single-cell proteomics using the cellenOne together with the timsTOF SCP system."
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
On Monday, Cellenion announced a similar comarketing agreement for single-cell proteomics with Thermo Fisher Scientific.
