SCIEX Announces Innovative Solutions for Customer Success Across Markets at ASMS 2017

SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, today announced that at ASMS 2017, it will highlight the cutting-edge innovations developed to power their most advanced LC-MS instrumentation and workflows, and is now enabling streamlined workflows making mass spec more accessible to routine users and non-mass spec experts.

SCIEX is committed to developing optimized solutions in support of the whole Precision Medicine continuum, from biomarker research to clinical implementation. As such, SCIEX will share how several customer partnerships are key to advancing biomarker discoveries via their industrialized omics pipelines. In addition, they will highlight the first and only FDA-cleared (via the de novo pathway) LC-MS based Vitamin D assay kit, the Vitamin D 200M Assay, exclusively for the SCIEX Topaz System. The Topaz System is a fully integrated LC-MS platform driven by ClearCore™ MD, the new and intuitive software designed specifically for use in clinical labs.

An array of scientific presentations and posters will be featured at the ASMS 2017 Annual Users Meeting and Breakfast Seminars, at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, 350 West Maryland St, Indianapolis, IN. Among the solutions being featured from the SCIEX comprehensive portfolio are:

5 Years of SWATH, expanding across applications

SWATH® Acquisition: The Evolution of Data Independent Acquisition – Since its commercialization 5 years ago, SWATH Acquisition has continued to advance and evolve. Workflow improvements, including the ability to optimize acquisition with variable sized Q1 windows and microflow for sample throughput have delivered significant increases in the number of proteins and peptides quantified, as many as 150 proteomes per week. Building off the successful implementation of SWATH Acquisition across academic research applications, the technology is now bringing significant advantages in other applications, including metabolomics, forensics, food testing, environmental analysis, and biologics characterization.

Biotransformation solutions, two streamlined solutions targeted to customer needs

New Biotransformation Solutions for Routine and Comprehensive Metabolism and Biologic Catabolism Studies – The latest additions to its growing line of solutions for pharmaceutical drug discovery and development. The Routine Biotransform Solution and the Advanced Biotransformation Solution are powered by the newest SCIEX MetabolitePilot™ Software 2.0, delivers an easy to use interface that places processing, interpretation and reporting all in one place.
