Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, California) announced its support of prostate cancer research by the University of Michigan’s (Ann Arbor) Center for Translational Pathology through a grant of instruments and funding. The goal is to accelerate research to defeat the disease using a multidisciplinary systems biology approach. The company is contributing a 1200 Series liquid chromatography (LC) system to be used to separate metabolites from human plasma as well as a 1200 Series Rapid Resolution LC system coupled to a model 6530 Accurate Mass quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer for the identification of those metabolites.
