New Products with Proteomic Applications from ASMS 2006
Company Product Name
Upgrade/
New
Description and Applications
Agilent GeneSpring MS software
New
Allows researchers to easily import, store, and visualize GC/MS and LC/MS data from large sample sets, and to detect changes in the profile of proteins, peptides and metabolites across many samples. Software will be available for order in the third quarter of 2006.
Multiple Affinity Removal System 7
New
Available in either liquid chromatography column or spin-tube format, the product removes the seven most abundant proteins in human plamsa: albumin, IgG, transferrin, haptoglobin, anti-trypsin, IgA, and fibrinogen.
Offgel Fractionator
New
Fractionates both intace proteins and peptides by their isoelectric point. Unlike standard gel-based pI fractionation, the system yields fractions in solution, which can be directly subjected to further fractionation, or LC/MS analysis.
Applied
Biosystems
8-plex iTRAQ
New
Still in development, this iTRAQ kit will be able to deal with up to eight different samples in one run. Scientific lectures showing the pioneering use of the reagents were presented at this ASMS. ABI hopes to release the product later this year.
BioiTRAQ Discovery System
New
Package designed around iTRAQ use includes Tempo Nano-LC system, QSTAR or 4800 mass spec, and iTRAQ chemistry kits.
MIDAS TRAQ Validation Systems
New
Package includes QTRAP 4000 or 3200 instrument, and software to build MIDAS workflow for validating biomarker candidates.
Plasma iTRAQ
New
Special iTRAQ kit optimized for dealing with plasma.
Protein iTRAQ
New
Special iTRAQ kit optimized for lableing intact proteins with iTRAQ.
Protein Pilot software
New
Launched in January, this is new quantitation software to support ICAT, iTRAQ, and SILAC experiments. Uses Paragon search engine, or, can also use Mascot.
Bruker
Daltonics
15 Tesla refrigerated magnet
New
World's first refrigerated 15T magnet is part of Bruker's R-series of FTMS magnets that require less maintenance.
ICPL Triplex kit
Upgrade
Now the Isotope Coded Protein Labels can be used to analyze up to three independent proteomes, instead of only two.
WARP-LC 1.1 software
Upgrade
Software designed for quantitative proteomics using isotope labeling supports ICPL, SILAC, iTRAQ, ICAT, and 18O/16O-C terminus labeling.
Genologics Proteus 3.6
Upgrade
Enhancements include integration with the Institute for Systems Biology's Trans Proteomic Pipeline, and the ability to handle electronic sample sheets.
Shimadzu AXIMA-TOF2
Upgrade
MALDI TOF/TOF mass spec's improved curved field reflectron technology gives improved quality in low-mass ion range.
Thermo
Electron
Bioworks 3.3 protein identification and quantitation software
Upgrade
New version of the software handles major quantitative labeling techniques, including iTRAQ, SILAC, and ICAT, as well as label-free quantitation. Uses Sequest algorithm for the identification of peptides and proteins. Allows users to import Mascot results after a Sequest search has been run.
Electron Transfer Dissociation module
New
ETD unit fragments peptides and proteins in a way that allows researchers to study post-translational modifications. Unit is retrofittable to all LTQs present in the field, and is sold as an option with all new LTQs.
LTQ FT Ultra hybrid FTICR
Upgrade
Features a new ICR cell design that increases sensitivity to attomole levels, increases dynamic range to over 4000, and increases mass accuracy to ppb levels. Resolution is greater than 1,000,000.
LTQ XL linear ion trap
Upgrade
Extends performance of the LTQ by offering ETD and PQD dissociation techniques, in addition to CID.
Peaks Studio de novo software
New
Developed by Bioinformatics Solutions, this software provides rapid automatic or manual de novo sequencing.
ProSightPC top-down proteomics software
New
Software analyzes top-down proteomics data. It uses five different search modes to determine the exact protein sequence, including modifications and alternative splicing.
SIEVE differential expression software
New
Provides label-free quantitative differential expression analysis of proteins and peptides from multiple LC/MS datasets.
Tissue Imaging software
New
Available with the LTQ XL, the software allows users to determine the spatial distribution of small molecules or peptide compounds of interest.
Waters Acquity TQD system
New
Benchtop, tandem-quadrupole, atmospheric pressure ionization mass detector-based system is designed for routine UPLC/MS/MS analyses. Uses IntelliStart technology to automatically calibrate and do performance checks of the instrument.
MALDI Q-Tof Premier mass spec
Upgrade
Upgraded instrument has a 200-Hz solid-state laser that scans faster than the laser in the previous version of the instrument. The improved laser allows for improved mass accuracy and up to 10-fold improvement in sensitivity, according to Waters.
Synapt High Definition Mass Spectrometry System
New
New class of mass spec employs ion-mobility technology to differentiate ions by size and shape, as well as molecular mass.
The Scan

Not as High as Hoped

The Associated Press says initial results from a trial of CureVac's SARS-CoV-2 vaccine suggests low effectiveness in preventing COVID-19.
