Applied Biosystems, a division of Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:LIFE), and its mass spectrometry joint-venture partner, MDS Analytical Technologies, a business unit of MDS Inc. (TSX:MDS) (NYSE:MDZ), today announced the launch of Cliquid® MPX™-2 high-throughput workflow, an end-to-end solution for mass spectrometry users to accelerate productivity for pharmaceutical and clinical research. The Cliquid MPX workflow integrates a new software application with mass spectrometers, high-performance liquid chromatography systems and auto-samplers to uniquely increase throughput for faster results while in accordance with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) standards of regulated markets. This can help bring new drugs to market more quickly.

The new Cliquid MPX solution addresses the need of pharmaceutical companies and clinical researchers to improve the productivity and efficiency of laboratory analysis. This solution can as much as double the throughput of Applied Biosystems/MDS Analytical Technologies QTRAP® and triple quadrupole mass spectrometers, which are widely used to analyze high volumes of samples. This increased speed enables scientists to more rapidly collect critical data that affects decision-making for advancing a drug candidate or conducting clinical studies.

The workflow is enabled by Cliquid MPX software, which allows concurrent LC/MS/MS analysis of two streams into a single mass spectrometer with either Cliquid Software or Analyst® Software. This is an innovation in mass spectrometry to create a single point of control for managing the complete workflow, which is supported by Applied Biosystems Global Services. This enables laboratories to increase throughput while achieving regulatory compliance by using the audit and traceability functionality of Analyst Software, providing the most efficient solution of its type within the life-science industry.

Laura Lauman, President of Life Technologies Mass Spectrometry Systems Division
"The pharmaceutical industry is under immense pressure to accelerate drugs to market. We provide the innovative tools to enable scientists to more rapidly conduct critical analyses and advance new drug candidates through the development process. The increased throughput of our industry-leading instruments, combined with the ability to integrate with third-party components, enables a unique, integrated workflow solution that will ultimately increase speed to market for new drug candidates."

Andy Boorn, President of MDS Analytical Technologies
"The Cliquid MPX workflow solution is the latest in a line of innovative software releases from the Applied Biosystems/MDS Analytical Technologies joint venture. This advancement enables an end-to-end workflow to improve laboratory analysis, while supporting the highest levels of regulatory compliance."
