Product News Oct 09, 2007
PerkinElmer, Inc. has announced the introduction of five new products at the Human Proteome Organization's (HUPO) 6th Annual World Congress in Seoul, South Korea, Oct. 6-10.
"PerkinElmer's investment into advancing protein analysis and imaging technologies demonstrates our ability to interpret researchers' needs, and to respond with solutions that enable greater productivity and a new level of insight into complex samples," said Robert F. Friel, President and Chief Operating Officer, PerkinElmer, Inc.
ExacTag™ S and ExacTag Analysis Software version 3.0 are additions to the Company's ExacTag product line, recognized as a multiplex platform for quantitative protein expression profiling by mass spectrometry (MS). ExacTag S is the only all-in-one solution for quantifying multiplexed protein expression from serum or plasma.
ExacTag Analysis Software version 3.0 automates communication with the Mascot™ protein search engine, enabling unattended, one-step protein identification and quantitation.
Two new additions to the Phos-tag® line of phosphorylation analysis reagents offer a high degree of sensitivity and selectivity. Phos-tag® Gold is a colorimetric assay for the identification and quantitation of phosphoproteins in solution. Phos-tag® Enrich is for the selective enrichment of phosphoproteins and phosphopeptides in biological samples, such as cell lysates.
New to the Geliance™ family of high-performance bio-imaging systems, the Geliance 1000 Imaging System is one of the most sophisticated technologies in the company's imaging portfolio. With optional advanced illumination design, it captures images of multiplexed 2-D gels for a wide array of white light, fluorescence and chemiluminescence applications in cellular, molecular and cancer research.
The instruments offer top-of-the line optical performance with easy-to-use hardware and software to provide researchers a choice of optics and lighting options.
