Applied Biosystems/MDS Analytical Technologies Launches MS Tools to Advance Public Health and Safety
Product News Jun 02, 2009
Applied Biosystems and its mass spectrometry joint-venture partner, MDS Analytical Technologies, a business unit of MDS Inc. announced the commercial availability of new mass spectrometry tools to help laboratories in a variety of industries advance their efforts to improve public health and safety.
The Cliquid® 3.0 Software application and mTRAQ® triplex reagents are designed to enhance food and water contaminant testing, forensic drug screening and protein biomarker research.
Cliquid® 3.0 Software is an automated software application for contaminant testing and forensic analysis. It enables scientists to identify unknown compounds, expanding the scope of Cliquid software to identify the greatest number of compounds and driving the life-science industry’s most comprehensive solution for food and water contaminant testing as well as forensic drug screening for emerging variations of illicit drugs.
mTRAQ® triplex reagents are a set of chemical reagents that label proteins in complex samples for targeted quantitation. They make accurate biomarker verification, doubling the throughput of analysis.
These tools, which are optimized for Applied Biosystems/MDS Analytical Technologies mass spectrometers, including the AB SCIEX 5500 Systems and AB SCIEX TOF/TOF 5800 System, enable scientists to increase their ability to use mass spectrometry systems to identify and quantify compounds or contaminants.
