New Products: Biognosys, Agilent


Biognosys this week launched its PlasmaDeepDive MRM panel, a targeted proteomics assay for measuring proteins levels in depleted plasma or serum.

The panel enables quantification of 100 proteins in a single LC-MRM measurement, the company said.

Agilent this week introduced its 1260 Infinity Multi-Detector Bio-SEC Solution, a size-exclusion chromatography system intended for protein sizing and studying aggregates and bio-conjugates. The system features advanced light-scattering detection capabilities, fully bio-inert instrumentation, and high-resolution columns, the company said.
