PharmaFluidics and Thermo Fisher enter into proteomics agreement

Skip to Navigation


PharmaFluidics, a Belgian bio-analytical chromatography company, has entered into a partnership agreement with Thermo Fisher Scientific. The agreement empowers PharmaFluidics to sell Thermo Fisher custom-made EASY-Spray transfer lines in combo sets with PharmaFluidics' own line of µPAC chromatography micro-chips to constitute an ultra-high-resolution front-end source platform for Thermo Fisher mass spectrometry (MS) instruments.

"This is an exciting opportunity to facilitate our µPAC customers' proteome analysis workflows and raise their protein identification performance capabilities to new heights," said Katrien Vanhonacker, vice president business development at PharmaFluidics. "It will provide all users of Thermo Scientific EASY-Spray source-equipped mass spectrometers with familiar access and connections to PharmaFluidics' separation chip."

"Today's bio-analytical customers require robust and easy-to-handle tools, to achieve new levels of performance in HPLC/MS," said Sven Klingel, director, business development, Life Sciences Business Unit, Thermo Fisher. "Our custom-made EASY-Spray transfer lines facilitate coupling of µPAC columns to our HRAM MS detectors in a simple and easy-to-use way. As a result of this collaboration, our customers can enhance their separation options with a range of chip-based, ultra-high-resolution separations and best in class MS instruments to achieve high-quality results."

The µPAC pillar array chromatography technology is an innovative platform that provides high-quality separation capabilities for MS. Using proprietary micro-chip microfluidic technology, the µPAC achieves superior separation of components in complex biological samples, improving LC-MS analysis results. The combined capabilities are revolutionizing the analysis of biological samples, allowing researchers, developers and vendors to keep pace in the buoyant and emerging fields of proteomics and protein-based diagnostics.
