Bruker Inks Consumables, Software Deals With PreOmics, Genedata

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Bruker said on Friday that it has inked a pair of agreements related to new consumables and software for its 4D Proteomics technology.

Bruker and PreOmics said they signed a codevelopment and comarketing agreement that will focus on PreOmics iST sample prep technology on Bruker's TimsTOF Pro. The sample prep technology, called inStageTip (iST), removes detergents, polymers, salts, lipids, and other contaminants and has exceptional peptide recovery, Bruker said. New iST protocols enable robust and reproducible sample preparation with a significant time advantage compared to common protocols, and are suitable for integration in semi-automated, high-throughput sample prep.

In addition, Bruker and Genedata announced a partnership for the Genedata Expressionist software platform, which now supports Bruker's TimsTOF Pro 4D omics format. Native support of the latest TimsTOF Pro data file format opens new opportunities for streamlining and automating complex proteomics, metabolomics, and biotherapeutics characterization studies, Bruker said. The combined technologies enable the implementation of a next-generation host cell protein analysis platform, the company added.

Bruker is announcing the partnerships, as well as several new mass spectrometry products, at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry Conference, held June 2-6 in Atlanta.
