Labcyte Collaborating with AstraZeneca on Acoustic Sample Handling for Mass Spec Analysis | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Labcyte said today that it is collaborating with AstraZeneca on applying its acoustic liquid handling technology to mass spec-based drug discovery work.

The collaboration will focus on using Labcyte's technology for direct loading of samples into mass spectrometers, which, the company said, could enable high-throughput, low-cost, label-free mass spec analyses. AstraZeneca aims via the project to expand such mass spec analyses throughout its entire drug discovery and development process.
