Agilent Technologies grants award for glycomics research

1st July 2010

Agilent Technologies has provided an Agilent Thought Leader Award to a Dublin-based research team in order to support its potentially groundbreaking glycomics research.

The science company, in association with its academic funding unit the Agilent Foundation, has contributed financial support and instruments to Professor Pauline Rudd’s group of experts at the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT).

Professor Rudd’s team is aiming to use liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry to study glycan biomarkers associated with disease, as well as analysing protein glycosylation to help characterise recombinant protein drugs.

In addition to the award, Agilent representatives will work closely with the NIBRT team to lend further technical expertise.

Gustavo Salem, vice-president and general manager of the biological systems division at Agilent, said: “We are very eager to begin working with leading glycomics scientists at NIBRT to continue to drive research and discovery in this emerging field.”

Last week, Agilent Technologies launched the 1260 Infinity bio-inert quaternary liquid chromatography system, a new device designed for use in analysing antibodies and biosimilars.
