ETH Zurich Develops the World's First Proteomics MRM Atlas with QTRAP Technology from AB SCIEX


10/4/2010 12:51:52 PM

FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AB SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, today announced that scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich), in collaboration with the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle, WA, used next-generation QTRAP mass spectrometry technology to create assays for approximately 20,000 human proteins, generating the world’s first human Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) Atlas, an online database that will be made publicly available. Scientists around the world can use this atlas to significantly advance biomarker research, protein-based drug development and fundamental biological and biomedical research. The MRMAtlas provides simple, validated assays expanding into never-before-seen areas of the proteome. This project involved ETH scientists led by Dr. Ruedi Aebersold, Ph.D., who will be featured in a November 9th live webcast of a technical presentation about the MRMAtlas.
