Protea REDIchip

Protea Biosciences has launched the REDIchip (resonance-enhanced desorption ionization) to enable the rapid identification and quantitation of small molecules in biofluids. The chip uses a patented nanospot array that was invented in the laboratory of Akos Vertes at George Washington University and exclusively licensed to Protea. REDIchip is formatted as a disposable, single use, 96-spot, target plate that is suitable for simple and complex biological mixtures and compatible with most standard MALDI-MS instrument systems.
