Innovation in Separations Science with the Combination of Eksigent Chromatography with Capillary Electrophoresis
Aug 08 2013 Read 5020 Times
AB Sciex Pte Ltd have announced the combination of its chromatography business with the capillary electrophoresis (CE) business from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences to advance separations science. This move brings together Beckman Coulter’s expertise in microscale separation with the expertise in microfluidics of the Eksigent chromatography team of AB Sciex.
This combination includes the transition of personnel as well as CE technologies and resources from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences to AB Sciex‒ two leading life science companies that are both owned by Danaher Corporation.
The Eksigent LC team of the AB Sciex separations business and the CE team of Beckman Coulter will work together going forward to develop breakthrough, integrated applications that provide fast and efficient separations of drugs, drug metabolites, organic acids, amino acids, low molecular weight amines, peptides, nucleic acids and nucleosides.
The new alignment within the AB Sciex separations business will also unlock greater potential to extend technology leadership, synergies and market presence. This will contribute to the advancement of biologics, clinical research and academic research for biological applications.
Among the synergies is the combination of CE technology and mass spectrometry (MS) technology. CE-MS allows researchers to expand the range of analytes detected while improving overall assay sensitivity. The selectivity of CE in front-end separation further enables the characterisation of intact proteins, their isoforms, cleaved fragments and complexes. CE-MS provides information that is complementary to nano LC for proteomics research.
By the end of Q3, the AB Sciex separations business will manage both the standalone Beckman Coulter CE products and the integrated CE-MS technology. The CE products will continue to be branded ‘Beckman Coulter.’ The separations business will also continue to manage all chromatography products, including Eksigent nano LC and micro LC systems, chips, software and columns.
