News Nov 16, 2007
Proxeon and Bruker Daltonik have announced that the companies have entered into an OEM agreement. Under the agreement, Bruker Daltonik will sell Proxeon’s nanoscale chromatography system, EASY-nLC™, together with their range of products for mass spectrometry, beginning initially in the Europe region.
“Combining our range of proteomics MS products with the novel nanoLC system from Proxeon takes proteomics analysis to a new level in terms of performance, reliability and ease-of-use, answering the increasing demand for integrated solutions,” said Dr. Alexander Harder; Director of Product Management of Bruker Daltonik.
EASY-nLC is a fully integrated, split-free nanoscale LC system, optimized for use with mass spectrometry and in particular LC-MS applications in proteomics. The product is already in use in proteomics laboratories and will also continue to be sold through the Proxeon sales team.
Bruker Daltonics offers a well-established range of mass spectrometry systems and solutions that are widely used in proteomics research, including their HCTultra™ ion trap, micrOTOF-Q™, and apex ultra™ instrument series. The Easy-nLC and MS systems are already completely integrated via Bruker Compass™ software, offering productivity advantages for proteomics researchers. The combined system will be sold by Bruker Daltonik through their sales and marketing organization.

The protein FUS is implicated in two neurodegenerative diseases: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). Using a newly developed fruit fly model, researchers have zoomed in on the protein structure of FUS to gain more insight into how it causes neuronal toxicity and disease.
