Sciex Inks Nanospray Tech Distribution Partnership With New Objective

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Sciex today announced a distribution partnership to offer the New Objective Digital PicoView 450 Source nanospray technology for use with the latest Sciex mass spectrometry systems.

Nanospray ion sources are used to maximize sensitivity in high-sensitivity liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis when working with limited amounts of biological samples.

New Objective nanospray technology is particularly suitable for Sciex's TripleTOF 6600 next-generation proteomics system, Sciex said in a statement.

"By bringing together these two leading companies in mass spectrometry and nanospray technology we will continue to provide the most advanced workflows in life science research," Aaron Hudson, Sciex senior director of academic and clinical research business, said in a statement.

Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

In March, Sciex signed an agreement to obtain exclusive reseller and marketing rights to Mass Consortium's XCMSplus metabolomics analysis software.
