Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a multinational manufacturer and distributor of life science research and clinical diagnostic products, and Bruker Corporation (NASDAQ: BRKR), a leading manufacturer of mass spectrometry (MS) instruments, today announced that they have signed an exclusive partnership agreement to develop and market new products based on Bio-Rad's surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization (SELDI) technology in combination with Bruker's matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF/TOF) mass spectrometers for applications of high-throughput protein profiling and identification. The products will provide new solutions for biomarker discovery, in particular, the detection and high-confidence identification of intact peptides and proteins under 30 kilodaltons, which are known to be challenging for currently available technologies to identify.

"We're confident that Bio-Rad's SELDI technology combined with the flexibility delivered by Bruker's TOF/TOF systems will offer tangible benefits to researchers for protein biomarker discovery," said Brad Crutchfield, Bio-Rad Vice President and Life Science Group Manager. "We welcome the opportunity to work with Bruker, a company that, similar to Bio-Rad, has a long history of advancing life science research through its commitment to customer support."

"We are excited about working with Bio-Rad," said Dr. Gary Kruppa, Vice President for Business Development at Bruker Daltonics. "Bruker Daltonics' high-performance TOF/TOF technology will bring a new dimension to protein profiling and identification, expanding the capabilities of Bio Rad's established SELDI technology. New products based on this combination of technologies will allow access to new technical capabilities and new market segments in applied proteomics, enabling researchers to better identify and characterize new biomarkers."
