NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – BioTrove will sell its sample preparation system with Agilent’s mass spectrometers as integrated systems under a new reseller agreement, BioTrove said today.
Under the non-exclusive agreement, which expands one signed a year ago, BioTrove will offer an end-to-end mass spec analysis solution aimed at the drug development market.
The agreement covers BioTrove’s RapidFire system, which includes robotics and microfluidic handling for sample prep and software, as an integrated solution with Agilent’s triple quadrupole and time-of-flight mass spectrometers. It also includes Agilent’s atmospheric pressure ionization sources.
The global agreement allows BioTrove to offer Agilent’s 6410 and 6460 Triple Quadrupole LC/MS systems, and its 6220 Accurate Mass Time-of-Flight system.
Gus Salem, Agilent's general manager of LC/MS, said the partnership “will enable unique, label-free assays that were previously virtually impossible.”
