New Products: Waters, Kinexus, and More


Waters this week introduced its new CORTECS UPLC columns, a line of 1.6 micron solid-core LC columns.

The columns are available in C18, C18+, and HILIC chemistries and in 30 different column configurations.

Kinexus has launched its new DrugKinet Knowledgebase, a database that contains 105,000 experimentally tested protein kinase-drug interactions.

The open-access database contains quantitative data on the effects of more than 800 chemical compounds on more than 400 protein kinases.

BD Biosciences has launched its BD LSRFortessa X-20 Cell Analyzer flow cytometer.

The analyzer can be configured with up to five lasers to detect up to 20 parameters simultaneously, the company said.

GE Healthcare has released its Biacore T200 Software v.2.0, a product intended to facilitate label-free screening of low molecular weight compounds and low abundance proteins using the company's Biacore T200 system.

The new software speeds the generation and interpretation of raw label-free interaction data, reducing the time required for screening and hit validation, the company said.

SAW Instruments this week released its SamX biosensor platform for the study of native membrane proteins and protein complexes.

The device is based on SAT's Surface Acoustic Wave technology, which detects analytes based on changes in high frequency acoustic oscillations.
