New Products: MS3 from Proteome Sciences and More


Proteome Sciences this week introduced its new MS3 mass spectrometry workflow using its TMT isobaric tagging reagents.

The workflow significantly reduces the ratio distortion interference seen when using standard tandem mass spec workflows with isobaric tagging, offering improved mass spec-based protein quantitation, the company said.

Bio-Rad this week launched its new Bio-Plex Pro cell signaling assays for detecting phosphorylated and total proteins in key intracellular signaling pathways.

The product consists of 34 magnetic bead-based immunoassays available both as singleplex and all-in-one formats and offers a broader dynamic range and higher sensitivity than competing immunoassays, the company said.

Genalyte this week launched the first assays for its Maverick Detection System – the Maverick ENA 4 and ENA 6 Assay Kits – both for screening for autoantibodies linked to autoimmune connective disorders.
