New Products: DVS Sciences, Biognosys


DVS Sciences this week introduced its CyTOF 2 Mass Cytometer instrument, an updated version of its original CyTOF mass cytometer. The company also introduced new MaxPar Panel Kits for use with the instrument.

The CyTOF 2 has the ability to simultaneously measure up to 120 biomarkers in single cells at a rate of 1,000 cells per second, the company said.

Biognosys this week launched its SkinDig100 assay panel for the quantification of 100 proteins in human skin biopsies and keratinocyte cell culture samples.

The panel uses multiple-reaction monitoring mass spec to quantify the proteins, which represent functional areas including differentiation, oxidative stress response, apoptosis inhibition as well as many other areas relevant to skin metabolism and a wide range of diseases, the company said.
