Thermo Fisher Scientific Forms Technology Alliance Partnership with Barnett Institute, Northeastern University

LCGC Europe eNews

Thermo Fisher Scientific (California, USA) has entered into a Technology Alliance Partnership agreement with the Barnett Institute, Northeastern University (Massachusetts, USA). The partnership will advance research into mass liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC–MS) applications.

The collaboration will include the sharing of samples, data and research that could result in improvements of instruments and software. Three main research areas will be focused on: comprehensive characterization of complex proteins; ultra-trace analysis methodologies of proteomic samples; and new LC–MS-based methods for the analysis of biosimilars.

“Academic research labs are tremendous sources of innovation, which is why we’re so pleased to collaborate with Northeastern scientists who have particular expertise in combining the strengths of separation science and high resolution MS analysis of proteins,” said Iain Mylchreest, VP, Research and Development, Thermo Fisher.  

“This agreement formalizes our commitment to actively expedite the development and application of important new technologies,” said Professor Barry Karger, the Barnett Institute’s Director.  “We are very pleased to strengthen the ongoing collaboration of our laboratory with Thermo Fisher in LC–MS protein analysis for biomedical and biotechnology applications.”
