Agilent launches life science research centre at Carleton University

24th September 2015

Agilent has announced the launch of a new centre for life science research in partnership with Canada's Carleton University.

The Carleton Mass Spectrometry Center is located in the university's department of chemistry in Ottawa. It comes equipped with state-of-the-art mass spectrometers, gas and liquid chromatography systems, and bioinformatics tools provided by Agilent.

With these tools, it will be easier for scientists to combine, analyse and visualise data from experiments in genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and lipidomics.

The centre is using a new analytical method, TrEnDi, which increases the sensitivity of mass spectrometry analyses by assigning a fixed, permanent positive charge to amino groups.

It allows for increased sequence coverage and peptide detection in proteomics analyses, and better detection in metabolomics and lipidomics analyses.

Agilent's Steve Fischer, marketing director for academia and government, said: "This partnership will enable Agilent to develop new innovative mass spectrometry-based omics workflows for life science research."ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801801407-ADNFCR
