Prosolia Licenses Sample Introduction Technologies from AB Sciex

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – AB Sciex has licensed to Prosolia a portfolio of new sample introduction and ionization methods based on a liquid microjunction surface sampling approach.

The deal announced today covers technologies developed by Gary Van Berkel and his colleagues at Oak Ridge National Laboratory that enables "direct extraction of solid-phase analytes from a variety of surfaces using a continuous flow of solvent," the companies said. The advantages of the technology, they added, allow researchers to rapidly analyze samples in combination with multi-modal ionization capabilities, as well as the versatility of coupling to thin-layer and liquid chromatography techniques.

Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.

AB Sciex is a Danaher company. Prosolia, based in Indianapolis, develops sample introduction methods for mass spectrometry and ion mobility systems.
