New Products: Shimadzu, Agilent, and More


Shimadzu has launched its new LCMS-8050 triple quadrupole.

The instrument offers attogram-level sensitivity along with a maximum scan rate of 30,000 u/second and a 5 millisecond polarity switching time and can perform up to 32,000 MRMs per analysis, the company said.

Agilent this week released its new AssayMAP peptide sample-prep system which offers automated protein digestion, peptide cleanup, and fractionation upfront of mass spec analysis.

The systems helps improve throughput and reproducibility of mass spec sample prep, addressing the bottleneck created by traditional sample prep methods, the company said.

Biognosys this week released a new version of its Spectronaut software that supports analysis of data independent acquisition mass spec data generated on Thermo Fisher Scientific's Q Exactive instrument.

Cell Signaling Technology has released its new HER3 rabbit monoclonal antibody for researcher studying HER2-mediated breast, lung, and ovarian tumors.

The antibody is primarily intended for immunohistochemistry and has also been validated for Western blotting, immunofluorescence, and flow cytometry and has been tested to ensure it has no cross-reactivity with other HER-family proteins, the company said.
