PerkinElmer, Sigma-Aldrich, Agilent Technologies


PerkinElmer announced this week the launch of a new chromatography software called version 6.3 TotalChrom Chromatography Data System. New features of the software include a fully CFR Part 11 compliant architecture, automated processing and a modern, intuitive interface. In addition, the software has “review and approve” features to quickly and easily examine numerous chromatograms and reports, and to electronically sign off and route approved data.

Sigma-Aldrich announced last week the introduction of its Panorama Ab Microarray Cell Signalling Kit, the first in a line of antibody-based microarrays.

Each Panorama Kit consists of 224 immobilized antibodies chosen from Sigma-Aldrich’s range of over 3,000. The kit uses a specialized format that maintains antibody activity and specificity within a three-dimensional structure of nitrocellulose layer. It has a high protein-binding capacity, dynamic range and reproducibility, the company said.

Agilent Technologies has introduced its pulsed dynamic focusing source for MALDI-MS. The source incorporates highly efficient, ion-focusing technology, a larger, more rugged source body, and upgraded imaging optics for easier target-spot selection.
