New Products: Bruker, Waters, and More


Bruker this week launched its new Autoflex Speed MALDI TOF/TOF mass spectrometer.

The instrument features a 2 kHz solid-state laser for high-throughput applications including LC-MALDI, MALDI imaging and microbiology identification as well as expanded high-resolution mass range for analysis of intact proteins, the company said.

Waters this week introduced its ionKey/MS device for integrating UPLC systems to mass spectrometers.

The device contains fluidic and electronic connections that allow researchers to easily connect UPLC to mass spec enabling improved sensitivity along with reduced solvent and sample sizes, the company said.

AB Sciex this week introduced its CESI 8000 system, a capillary electrophoresis and electrospray ionization platform intended for biologics characterization.

According to the company, the platform offers improved ionization efficiency while reducing ion suppression.

Phenomenex this week released its Kinetex Core-Shell Biphenyl HPLC/UHPLC columns, offering researchers an orthogonal selectivity to traditional c18 phases.

Biophoretics this week released its Realtime Stain pre-electrophoretic protein stain for SDS-PAGE, which, the company said, allows researchers to see the separation of all sample lanes as they occur, letting them monitor the experiment as it proceeds.

The Scan

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.

TB Resistance Insights Gleaned From Genome Sequence, Antimicrobial Response Assays

Researchers in PLOS Biology explore M. tuberculosis resistance with a combination of sequencing and assays looking at the minimum inhibitory concentrations of 13 drugs.

Mendelian Disease Genes Prioritized Using Tissue-Specific Expression Clues

Mendelian gene candidates could be flagged for further functional analyses based on tissue-specific transcriptome and proteome profiles, a new Journal of Human Genetics paper says.

Single-Cell Sequencing Points to Embryo Mosaicism

Mosaicism may affect preimplantation genetic tests for aneuploidy, a single-cell sequencing-based analysis of almost three dozen embryos in PLOS Genetics finds.
