NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies today announced it has purchased supercritical fluid chromatography company Aurora SFC Systems for an undisclosed amount.
Agilent has acquired Aurora's product line and its IP as part of the deal.
Several mass spec vendors presented this week at the UBS Global Life Sciences Conference in New York City, offering information on various aspects of their businesses, including portions of their proteomics portfolios.
With executives from Agilent, Thermo Fisher, Waters, and Danaher presenting this week at the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference, UPLC as well as triple quadrupole and qual-quan mass spec proved primary areas of discussion.
The release of a long-awaited protein biomarker test, increased adoption of a major instrument platform, and a pair of proteome mapping milestones marked a year in which several much-anticipated advances in proteomics arrived.
The platform will be based on Agilent's HPLC-chip technology and will enable high-throughput, nanoscale analysis of N-glycosylated proteins, said a researcher at Dublin's National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training.
