AB SCIEX Releases New Mass Spectrometry Solutions at ASMS Conference
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
AB SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, today
released five new mass spectrometry solutions that will allow scientists
around the world to find answers to improve scientific understanding and
safeguard health. The new AB SCIEX additions include the Next-Generation
Proteomics Platform which consists of the new TripleTOF®
6600 system and SWATH™
Acquisition 2.0, BioPharmaView™
Software for automating biologics workflow, StatusScope™
Remote Monitoring service, and Triple
Quad™ 3500 System for food testing. The tools were unveiled during
the American Society of Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) conference in
Baltimore, where the company introduced "Answers for Science. Knowledge
for life," citing customer successes as a result of the company's highly
sophisticated mass spectrometry innovations.
The new solutions, which work as part of AB SCIEX's comprehensive
portfolio, include the following highlights:
TripleTOF® 6600 system with SWATH™ Acquisition 2.0
- The company's new revolutionary solution for quantitative
proteomics and biologics. This high-resolution, accurate-mass system,
combined with the new SWATH™ Acquisition 2.0, brings new power to data
challenges for advanced biomarker discovery and systems biology. Ideal
for studying changes in biotherapeutics when combined with
BioPharmaView software, this solution helps researchers gain rapid,
accurate, and confident understanding of compounds in the area of drug
BioPharmaView™ Software - A powerful new product for automating core
workflows, offering exceptional investigative capabilities and fast
data acquisition. Built on customer feedback, BioPharmaView Software
can efficiently analyze and compare batches while monitoring critical
quality attributes according to the FDA's well-characterized
biotherapeutic product (WCBP) model.
StatusScope™ Remote Monitoring service - A configurable, real-time
offering that supports most AB SCIEX mass spectrometers and Eksigent
Micro and Nano LC products. With three user levels - lab manager, lab
director and technician - StatusScope service delivers the flexibility
to view instrument performance and workflow status remotely, capturing
errors quickly to minimize downtime. The graphical display has been
designed to enable the user to quickly see critical data.
Triple Quad™ 3500 System - A new enhanced
basic mass spectrometry system that meets the evolving demands of food
and environmental testing laboratories. The Triple Quad 3500 system
enables laboratories to detect more compounds in each injection, with
a three-fold increase in sensitivity over its predecessor, the API
"We continue to invest in breakthrough technologies to empower our
customers to find more answers and gain greater insights," said Rainer
Blair, President of AB SCIEX. "Our new highly sophisticated tools
will allow our customers to reach new discovery levels with exceptional
developments. 'Answers for science. Knowledge for life' is about
enabling scientists and applied lab technicians to explore new
possibilities and achieve successful conclusions that impact our world
for the better."
"The more sensitive and accurate SWATH data-independent acquisition
strategy has allowed our researchers to have a better understanding of
diseases," said Dr. Anne-Claude Gingras, Senior Investigator Lea
Reichmann Chair in Cancer Proteomics at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research
Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, who presented a customer case
study. "SWATH helped us discover a new biology, and early results have a
better IDA (News - Alert) sensitivity of ~50% more proteins IDs."
Throughout the week at the ASMS conference, AB SCIEX will continue
showcasing customer success utilizing its innovative platforms at booth
#160. In addition, scientists from the company will be demonstrating
ways to accelerate and improve workflows on a variety of instruments.
