Thermo Fisher Scientific (California, USA) has announced the formation of a Technology Alliance Partner agreement with the University of Birmingham (Birmingham, UK) to further research in high-resolution accurate mass and triple quadrupole liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS).

Thermo Fisher Scientific will work with scientists at the university to develop hardware and software for metabolomic analysis, develop high resolution mass spectrometry and gas-phase ion chemistry for top-down and bottom-up proteome analysis, and to promote training of graduate students.

“The University of Birmingham scientists share our drive to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer,” said Iain Mylchreest, VP, research and development, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “We look forward to a very productive collaboration with this innovative, creative group for advancing metabolomic and proteomic research.”

“We are excited to become Thermo Fisher Scientific’s first Technology Alliance Partner within Europe,” said Professor Adam Tickell, the University’s pro vice chancellor for research and knowledge transfer. “We anticipate that innovations from this research will translate directly into improved healthcare and environmental diagnostics. We are particularly excited by Thermo Fisher’s commitment to supporting graduate research.”
