Bio-Rad and Bruker Ally to Develop Biomarker Discovery Tools

  • Bio-Rad Laboratories and Bruker are combining technologies for high-throughput protein profiling and identification. The exclusive agreement includes the development and marketing of new products based on Bio-Rad’s surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization (SELDI) technology in combination with Bruker’s matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF/TOF) mass spectrometers.

    The products will provide solutions for biomarker discovery, in particular, the detection and high-confidence identification of intact peptides and proteins under 30 kilodaltons. These are challenging for currently available technologies to identify, according to the companies.
