Applied Biosystems said new mass spectrometer is fastest ever

7th April 2009

Applied Biosystems (AB) claims its new mass spectrometer is the fastest ever built, in addition to being the most sensitive.

Now commercially available, the AB SCIEX 5800 System is MALDI-based and has been developed with AB’s joint venture partner MDS Analytical Technologies.

According to AB, the product is significantly advanced in comparison to other systems in this field and enables researchers to find as much as 30 per cent additional proteins ten times faster.

It will assist professionals in advancing the discovery of biomarkers and improved understanding of diseases in a clinical environment, the company explained.

"The AB SCIEX 5800 System delivers innovative, breakthrough technology that provides a giant technological leap forward that will help translate today’s biomarker research into tomorrow’s personalised medicine," said Laura Lauman, president of the mass spectrometry systems division at Life Technologies, which was created via the merger of AB and Invitrogen.

Its intellectual property estate includes more than 3,600 patents and licenses.
