New Sample Prep Technique for Proteomics Research

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, Massachusetts) have developed a new sample preparation technique for proteomics research.

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, Massachusetts) have developed a new sample preparation technique for proteomics research. The research involved the development of a multidimensional  protein/peptide microfluidic separation component for the integration  of a heterogeneous (micro) analytic system, and the technique was designed for tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS) research.

The researchers believe that they have now solved one of the critical problems that has long been a technical barrier to developing a true micro total analysis system.
