INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – June 5th, 2017: Bruker is show-casing several new and innovative, high-performance mass spectrometry solutions for metabolomics, proteoform profiling and toxicology at ASMS 2017 (www.asms.org). Bruker is also celebrating 25 years of MALDI innovation with an emphasis on robust, high-throughput MALDI analytical, clinical and imaging solutions.
Frank H. Laukien, Ph.D., Bruker’s President and CEO, commented: “At ASMS 2017, we are introducing novel and performance-leading mass spectrometry solutions for life-science and translational research markets, as well as for pharmaceutical and applied markets. Our advanced MALDI Imaging solutions now integrate the industry-leading SCiLS mass-spec imaging software with the rapifleX high-throughput MALDI-TOF/TOF system, or the novel MALDI-Magnetic Resonance Mass Spectrometry (MRMS) extreme resolution system for drug and metabolite tissue imaging. We are also show-casing our unique timsTOF research system, novel Metabolomics research and Phenomics translational research solutions, a breakthrough Proteoform Profiling solution, and a new robust, routine forensic Toxicology platform. In 2017, we are also celebrating 25 years of MALDI innovation, an ionization technique that has enabled pioneering breakthroughs in proteomics, microbiology, imaging and high-throughput screening for drug discovery.”
Bruker’s novel Proteoform Profiling™ 1.0 solution enables a powerful new life-science research and translational research workflow, i.e. the systematic, large-scale, label-free study of all expressed proteoforms, including protein mutations, splice variants, post-translational modifications, as well as protein processing or degradation products. Detailed proteoform characterization is of tremendous importance in cell biology and in clinical proteomics research, where traditional bottom-up proteomics analysis of digested proteins scrambles key biological information. While the human genome only has about 25-30,000 coding sequences, or ‘genes’, for transcription and translation into protein families, the human body may have up to 1 billion different proteoforms expressed.
Please join us at Bruker’s ASMS Booth #518 throughout the conference, and at our press conference on Monday, June 5, 2017, at 9:30 am EDT at the JW Marriott Indianapolis, 3rd floor, JW Grand Ballroom.
