Thermo Fisher Scientific announces novel technology for enabling quantitative protein expression analysis.

Products allow single- through sixplex quantitation for multiple samples

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announces the introduction of the Thermo Scientific TMT® Isobaric Mass Tagging Kits for Protein Quantitation and Characterization. The patented Tandem Mass Tag® (TMT) Chemistry enables the identification and quantitation of protein expression levels from multiple sample types including cells, tissues and biological fluids. The consistent chemistry of TMT Tags allows for efficient transition from method development to multiplex quantitation, leading to increased throughput for accelerated biomarker discovery.

This novel technology, marketing exclusively by Thermo Fisher, provides the ability to multiplex up to six different samples in a given experiment enabling protein expression profiling that leads to identification of target proteins for therapeutic intervention.

When combined with the industry-leading Thermo Scientific LTQ OrbiTrap™, LTQ™ XL and TSQ Quantum™ Mass Spectrometry Instrument platforms and software, the TMT Tags provide an integrated total system solution for quantitative protein expression analysis.

The TMT Tags are provided in optimized kit formats containing all necessary reagents and controls for maximum flexibility, convenience and reliability. They are also available as standalone sets. For more information on the new TMT Technology and products, visit call 815-968-0747.

Tandem Mass Tag and TMT are trademarks of and sourced from Proteome Sciences. Thermo Scientific is part of Thermo Fisher Scientific, the world leader in serving science.
