Bruker Daltonics and Queensland Institute of Medical Research Expand Collaboration with Installation of maXis™ UHR-TOF
News Jan 06, 2009
Bruker Daltonics and the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) have announced the installation of the first maXis™ Ultra-High Resolution Time-Of-Flight (UHR-TOF) mass spectrometer in Australasia, thereby further strengthening the collaboration between Bruker and QIMR.
According to Bruker Daltonics, maXis is the only instrument available that uniquely combines the previously incompatible trends in modern mass spectrometry of ultra-high resolution and fast chromatographic separations. High resolution and sensitivity are maintained even when coupled to liquid chromatography systems.
"Bruker is delighted to further strengthen the collaborative relationship we have developed with Professor Gorman and QIMR. The installation of maXis, the first in Australasia, offers a major opportunity for us to co-develop the advanced methodologies required for the wide range of applications undertaken at QIMR's Protein Discovery Centre (PDC)," stated Clive Seymour, Executive Vice President of Bruker Daltonics.
"The installation of maXis will allow us to collaborate more extensively with Bruker, particularly in the development of ETD methodologies for the study of post-translational modifications on this exciting new platform, and represents a quantum leap in MS capability at QIMR," commented Professor Jeff Gorman, Director of the PDC.

Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
Fructose Formula Poses Risk to Babies With Metabolic DisorderNews
Babies with inherited intolerance of fructose face a risk of acute liver failure if they are fed certain widely available formulas containing fructose, pediatricians and geneticists are warning. Baby formula manufacturers should remove fructose or sucrose, or explicitly label their products to allow parents to avoid those sweeteners if necessary, the doctors say.
