NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – SISCAPA Assay Technologies (SAT) said Wednesday that it has licensed a stable isotope-labeled (SIL) standards technology to Waters.
Waters said it will use the non-exclusive license to explore the technology as a tool for standardizing quantitative mass spec assays.
The technology uses multiple SIL standards to target molecules, allowing researchers to create internal standard calibration curves for their assays. According to SAT, this could lower the time and cost of such assays.
“With the licensing of SAT’s technology, we are now in the process of evaluating the benefits of the approach for quantitative LC/MS assays in a number of application areas,” Jeff Mazzeo, Waters vice president of marketing, said in a statement.
