AB SCIEX and LECO Announces Co-marketing Agreement
News Jul 04, 2013
LECO Corporation and AB SCIEX have announced a co-marketing agreement to cooperatively offer bundled liquid chromatography (LC) and gas chromatography (GC) mass spectrometry-based solutions to metabolomics researchers who require both types of separation capabilities.
Metabolomics researchers often require the use of both GC/MS and LC/MS technologies to provide comprehensive coverage of the analytes in their biological systems as part of the Systems Biology approach.
The new AB SCIEX/LECO bundled solutions will provide these researchers with high speed, accurate mass capabilities with LC and GC, along with robust nominal mass GC/MS and triple quadrupole mass spectrometry.
Researchers will have at their disposal pairings of time-tested nominal mass systems as well as industry-leading high performance GC-TOF and LC-QTOF MS systems.
The application support and service teams of both companies will work together to ensure that users get the support they need to run their comprehensive experiments.
"As the industry leader in LC/MS, we interact with metabolomics researchers all over the world, and we understand that there are times when metabolomics researchers want to use both GC/MS and LC/MS," said Aaron Hudson, Senior Director, Academic and Omics Business, AB SCIEX.
Hudson continued, "Representing a virtual one-stop shop for metabolomics mass spectrometry, the joint bundles from AB SCIEX and LECO provide users with greater flexibility in chromatography while obtaining the rich information that MS/MS delivers."
"Bringing together leaders in GC/MS and LC/MS and facilitating the availability of our systems as complementary technologies helps ensure that metabolomics researchers can approach their work to obtain the very best data and information available," said Jeffrey Patrick, Director of Marketed Technologies for LECO.
Patrick continued, "Our leadership in GC/MS technologies is a perfect complement to the offerings of AB SCIEX and puts the combined power of our product portfolios, expertise, services, and support to work for these researchers."
The joint bundles from AB SCIEX and LECO will be available in North America and Europe.

Novel Isotope Tracking Method Offers Hope for Threatened SpeciesNews
Locating even a single nest of the secretive goshawk required weeks of exploration. So scientists decided to conduct elemental analysis using strontium, which has naturally occurring isotopes found everywhere on Earth that travel the food chain from the soil to plants to herbivores and predators. Analysing prey remains enabled the researchers to determine where the birds of prey were hunting, findings that could help steer conservation efforts for goshawks and other vulnerable species.READ MORE
New Therapeutic Could Help in the Battle Against TBNews
In search of new antibiotics, researchers have developed a structural analogue of mycolic acid, the essential membrane building block. This drug blocks key enzymes used in mycomembrane biosynthesis, significantly increasing the effectiveness of conventional antibiotics. This could provide a novel approach for tuberculosis treatment.READ MORE
