Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched its Tandem Mass Tag (TMT) isobaric mass tagging kits for protein quantitation and characterization. The kits are based on the company’s TMT chemistry, which enables the identification and quantitation of protein expression levels from multiple sample types including cells, tissues, and biological fluids, the company said.
 
The technology also allows users to multiplex up to six different samples in an experiment, Thermo Fisher said.
 
The TMT Tags are available in kit formats that contain all the necessary reagents and
controls, or as standalone sets.
 

 
AnaSpec said this week that it has added a new anti-SOCS-3 (IN) antibody to its collection of SOCS antibodies.
