NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – AB Sciex today said that it will work with ARUP Laboratories to develop new test methods aimed at improving hormone analysis.
Under the alliance, ARUP researchers are using AB Sciex's QTrap 5500 mass spectrometry platform. The firms noted that immunoassay-based approaches for hormone analysis are "often plagued by interferences, preventing them from obtaining accurate measurements." They believes the mass spec technology will enable greater sensitivity and accurate quantitation of low-abundant hormones.
Terms of the alliance were not disclosed.
