Thermo Fisher Scientific has acquired Proxeon A/S, a supplier of products for proteomics analysis headquartered in Odense, Denmark.

Thermo Fisher Scientific has acquired Proxeon A/S, a supplier of products for proteomics analysis headquartered in Odense, Denmark. The company is said to provide simplified proteomics workflows, including nanoflow liquid chromatography systems, columns, ion sources and bioinformatics software, to meet the need for robust high-sensitivity LC–MS analysis in complex proteomics applications.

Proxeon’s nanoflow liquid chromatography system is claimed to allow reproducible low-nanolitre injections into the mass spectrometer, permitting researchers to improve productivity without comprising performance. The system also provides two-dimensional chromatographic capability to identify more proteins than conventional methods, without the increased complexity of added valves and pumps.

“By offering a high-performance solution that addresses the need for simplified operation, we can meet the increasing demand for LC–MS in proteomics applications,” said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. “These systems can be integrated with our ion trap, hybrid and triple quadrupole mass spectrometry systems, in line with our strategy of providing comprehensive LC–MS solutions for both high-end research and routine applications.”

Proxeon will be integrated into Thermo Fisher’s Analytical Technologies Segment.
