Thermo Fisher Scientific and George Mason University Form Biomarker Validation Partnership

  • Thermo Fisher Scientific says it formed an alliance between its Biomarker Research Initiatives in Mass Spectrometry (BRIMS) center and George Mason University’s Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine (CAPMM) to accelerate biomarker validation for early disease diagnosis.

    A key challenge in biomarker research has been independent validation of experimental results, Thermo Fisher points out. The newly formed alliance will overcome this challenge by creating a cross-validation workflow between BRIMS and the University laboratory. Both labs will use identical Thermo Scientific Quantum™ Ultra triple quadrupole mass spectrometers to analyze assays.
