Agilent, Picometrics to Integrate Fluorescence and Electrophoresis Technologies

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Agilent Technologies and Picometrics will integrate their electrophoresis and fluorescence technologies, and Picometrics will market the integrated tool through a value-added reseller agreement, Agilent said today.
 
Under the agreement, Picometrics’ laser-induced fluorescence detector will be available to maintain temperature control inside of Agilent’s capillary electrophoresis cassette.
 
Agilent said the integrated unit will be useful to detect proteins, peptides, carbohydrates, amino acids, and oligonucleotides.
