The following companies released new products with proteomics applications at ASMS 2005: Agilent Technologies, Alfa Wasserman, Applied Biosystems, Bruker Daltonics, GE Healthcare, Invitrogen, MDS Sciex, Proteome Software, Serva Electrophoresis GmbH, Thermo Electron, and Waters. For a list of the new products and brief descriptions, see the ASMS new products table.


Nonlinear Dynamics said last week that it will launch its Pro MST protein informatics platform at the Human Proteome Organization congress in Munich, Germany, in August. Pro MST is being developed to store, manage, and mime data generated during 2D gel and mass spectrometry experiments. Nonlinear said that data from its Progenesis and Phoretix systems will be directly imported into the system.


Millipore announced today the release of two new chemiluminescent substrates for Western blotting applications. According to the company, the Immobilon Western HRP and AP Chemiluminescent Substrates provide high signal response at mid-femtogram levels.

The two substrates save on antibody consumption by using two- to five-fold less primary and secondary antibodies than traditional, low-sensitivity substrates, Millipore said. The substrates are compatible with polyvinylidene fluoride and nitrocellulose membranes as well as commonly used buffers and blocking reagents.
