AB Sciex Pte. Ltd has announced a distribution agreement with Sigma-Aldrich® to resell the company’s portfolio of mass spectrometry-based tagging chemistries called SCIEX iChemistry™ Solutions.

This portfolio of advanced chemistries includes the industry-leading iTRAQ® reagents for proteomics and IDQuant™ standards for pesticide analysis.

Sigma-Aldrich will now be able to provide a total solution to mass spectrometry users as well as biologists and chemists who want to start to use mass spectrometry to improve their analyses across a wide range of samples.

SCIEX iChemistry™ Solutions are the industry’s premier reagents and consumables custom designed for mass spectrometry applications.

More than 300 peer-reviewed articles about iTRAQ® reagents are in print.

The agreement with Sigma-Aldrich is expected to expand the reach of these reagents across the global scientific community as well as make Sigma-Aldrich’s broad portfolio of chemistries more readily available to AB SCIEX’s customer base, which includes thousands of scientists worldwide.

“AB Sciex has unique intellectual property that allows us to develop innovative chemistries that are not available from any other provider,” said Babu Purkayastha, Director of R&D for Consumables at AB Sciex.

Purkayastha continued, “By working with Sigma-Aldrich, we are making it easier for scientists to obtain our innovative tagging chemistries as part of a total chemistry solution that can be purchased on Sigma-Aldrich’s website. Sigma-Aldrich’s strength in offering reagents and consumables to biologists, chemists and mass spectrometrists combined with AB Sciex’s chemistries will help make mass spectrometry a de facto standard in bio-analytical science.”

New techniques are necessary if scientists are to answer key biological and analytical questions.

Mass spectrometry is a powerful technology for compound detection and quantitation, but scientists around the world are working on assays that require levels of quantitation not possible with even the most sensitive and most robust mass spectrometry instruments. That’s where reagents add value.

The company recently launched Amplifex™ Reagents, the first of a new family of advanced chemistries designed to boost the performance of mass spectrometers, improve data precision and significantly increase sensitivity beyond conventional limits.

With the Amplifex™ Reagents, improvements in sensitivity can range from 5x to 1000x, depending on the analyte.
