Applied Biosystems: Apr 26, 2007

Applied Biosystems this week released an updated version of its 4800 MALDI/TOF/TOF mass spectrometer and enhanced ProteinPilot software for the instrument. Together, the new releases are expected “to help scientists gain deeper quantitative insight into the study of proteomics,” ABI said in a statement.
Included in the upgrade to the 4800 is greater data security and data availability, said Aaron Hudson, senior manager of global proteomics marketing for ABI. “What we’re really saying is, all around [there’s] increased robustness for the user.”
The 4800 MALDI/TOF/TOF was originally launched in May 2005.
ProteinPilot was adapted for use with the 4800 instrument. It had previously been available for QSTAR and QTRAP instruments.
