SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., (NYSE: TMO), the world leader in serving
science, strengthened its industry-leading analytical instruments
platform with innovative systems designed to help pharmaceutical and
biologics producers more efficiently discover and develop candidate
drugs. These new products will be on display at the 64th
Annual American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) Conference, June
5-9 in Texas Ballroom D at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
“The success of our innovation strategy is based on continuous
collaboration with our customers,” said Marc N. Casper, president and
chief executive officer Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Our mission is to
enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer, and
we are committed to providing them with the most advanced analytical
technologies to help them facilitate research and accelerate discovery.
This year’s ASMS showing is another great example of how we continue to
leverage our technology leadership to raise the performance bar and help
our customers achieve their goals.”
The new Thermo Scientific Q Exactive BioPharma MS/MS Hybrid
Quadropole-Orbitrap mass spectrometer takes full advantage of the
high-resolution, accurate-mass (HRAM) capabilities of the Orbitrap mass
analyzer to enable key workflows for protein characterization in a
single instrument. Combined with recommended sample preparation and
analysis methods using Thermo Scientific reagents, columns, UHPLC and
data processing technologies, the Q Exactive BioPharma system provides a
comprehensive solution for customers performing biopharmaceutical
At ASMS, Thermo Fisher will also feature its new Thermo Scientific
Vanquish Flex Binary UHPLC system, an ideal complement for
pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical laboratories performing qualitative
and quantitative LC or LC-MS analysis. Built for high-speed and fast
gradient applications, the Vanquish platform delivers outstanding
As part of its focus on innovation, Thermo Fisher will feature new
technology from 908 Devices, a pioneer in purpose-built analytical
devices for chemical analysis. Customers using Thermo Fisher’s mass
spectrometers can now incorporate 908 Devices’ breakthrough ZipChip
microfluidics separation technology to deliver fast, high-quality
separations that transform analysis of biomolecules.
Thermo Fisher will also showcase high-profile collaborations through
presentations and posters by notable scientists doing breakthrough work
with its mass spectrometry technologies.
Dr. Willi Haas, assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, will
present the Advances
in Accurate, High-Throughput Quantitative Proteomics Breakfast
Workshop. His approach combines Orbitrap HRAM MS and
synchronous precursor selection (SPS)-based MS3 technology on the
Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Tribrid MS system to accurately
measure the smallest changes in low-abundance proteins.
Dr. Fan Liu from the Albert Heck Lab, Utrecht University, Netherlands,
will present the Improved
Workflows for Structural Proteomics Breakfast Workshop. Dr.
Liu’s lab is using Orbitrap technology for proteome-wide cross-linking
mass spectrometry to chart the cellular interactome, the whole set of
molecular interactions in a single cell.
Dr. Jennifer Abelin from the Eli and Edythe L. Broad Institute of MIT
and Harvard will present High-throughput Profiling of HLA
Allele-specific Peptides by MS for Improved Epitope Predictions at
Fisher Annual User Meeting. She will discuss her use
of LC-MS/MS techniques to improve the understanding of antigen
processing to identify peptides in diseases including cancer,
inflammatory bowel disease and infectious diseases.
Dr. Akhilesh Pandey, John Hopkins University School of Medicine, will
present Getting Ready for Clinical Proteomics at the Thermo
Fisher Annual User Meeting. Dr. Pandey will discuss the
emerging use of proteomics in a clinical setting. Dr. Pandey is best
known for his groundbreaking research in the mapping of the human
Finally, Thermo Fisher will recognize the winners of the 2016 Thermo
Scientific Tandem Mass Tag (TMT) Research Awards, an international
research grant for scientists and their work in proteomics.
Thermo Fisher will be exhibiting in Booth 319 at the Henry B. Gonzalez
Convention Center and in Texas Ballroom D at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in
San Antonio. For more information please visit http://www.thermofisher.com/asms.
