NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Mount Sinai School of Medicine will install an Agilent 6460 triple-quadrupole mass spectrometer for use by members of the Academy for Medical Development and Collaboration, or AMDeC, the academy said today.
AMDeC, which includes 28 member institutes in New York, acquired the mass spectrometer through a purchasing agreement with Agilent.
These member institutes will use the mass spectrometer at Mt. Sinai for a range of research applications, including proteomics studies aimed at discovering clinically relevant biomarkers, measuring environmental and food contaminants, and quantifying pharmaceutical candidates.
"This is another example of how AMDeC has taken a proactive approach to bringing researchers together and equipping them with what they need to drive their programs," Maria Mitchell, AMDeC's president and CEO, said in a statement.
