As part of the deal, the companies will develop peptide-based applications on JPT's high-throughput proteomics screening platform. 

The researchers said the method increases the number of samples that can be sequenced at once, reduces the cost per sample, and will be particularly amenable for viral sequencing projects.

The automated benchtop system, called SPRIworks Fragment Library System I, is scheduled to be launched this quarter. It is capable of preparing up to 10 DNA libraries for the Illumina Genome Analyzer within five hours, according to Beckman.
