NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – AB Sciex today announced a collaboration with Germany's Landeswasserverorgung Water Supply to develop methods of identifying contaminants in drinking water.
Landeswasserverorgung will use AB Sciex's TripleTOF 5600 mass spectrometer to create new methods that testing facilities can use to detect contaminants that typically aren't targeted in water testing and can go undetected by current methods. The methods will be developed so that such contaminants will be able to be screened in a repeatable and systematic manner, AB Sciex said in a statement.
Analysis and method development will occur at Landeswasserverorgung's facilities in Germany.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Landeswasserverorgung, which provides drinking water to about 3 million people in southern Germany is analyzing water from the Danube River with the AB Sciex platform.
