Thermo Fisher Scientific Announces Collaboration with Newomics to Advance Disease Biomarker Validation
"Translating cutting-edge biomarker discoveries into clinically-meaningful applications requires validation workflows that allow rapid, sensitive, high-throughput analysis to run large numbers of samples," said Emily Chen, senior director, Precision Medicine Science Center, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "The goal of our collaboration with Newomics is to enable greater sensitivity and reproducibility using microflow LC-MS analyses to support the expanding need for high throughput analyses by our clinical research customers."
Daojing Wang, founder and chief executive officer, Newomics, said, "Combining our unique emitters with Thermo Fisher’s microflow LC-MS expertise will improve the selectivity and sensitivity of workflows, helping scientists to detect even low-abundance analytes in clinically relevant samples, like blood and urine. We look forward to working closely with Thermo Fisher to develop and optimize microflow LC-MS solutions that we hope will advance our understanding and diagnosis of complex diseases."
The new collaboration coincides with the 67th American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, being held June 2–6, where Thermo Fisher is showcasing its latest innovations in the International Ballroom ABCD at the Omni CNN Center Hotel, Atlanta, Georgia.
