AB Sciex. (9/20/10). "Press Release: Australian Proteome Analysis Facility Chooses AB Sciex High Resolution, Accurate Mass System to Advance Proteomics Research. AB Sciex TripleTOF 5600 System to Increase Proteome Coverage with Faster, Higher Quality Dat

AB SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, today announced that the Australian Proteome Analysis Facility (APAF) has chosen the AB SCIEX TripleTOF™ 5600 System to help advance proteomics research by significantly expanding proteome coverage. The TripleTOF™ 5600 System is the life science industry’s fastest and most sensitive high-resolution mass spectrometer for high-performance qualitative and quantitative analysis. APAF is among the first laboratories in the world to adopt this groundbreaking scientific technology. The TripleTOF™ 5600 System is on display at the HUPO conference this week in Sydney, Australia.

APAF is a leading provider of proteomic services and was the birthplace of the term “proteomics” in 1995. Its core proteomic services are focused on differential protein expression analysis, which drives the search for biomarkers that can be used to improve human health, agriculture and food research. The TripleTOF™ 5600 System will enable APAF scientists to characterize which proteins are changing within a biological system with much greater depth and accuracy than what they can currently achieve with the existing systems in their laboratory.

The TripleTOF™ 5600 System is a new generation of mass spectrometry instrumentation and it is the only system that combines the highest available sensitivity and speed with high resolution. Scientists can utilize it to generate better quality information from samples more easily than previously possible, increasing productivity and efficiency. The TripleTOF™ 5600 System also provides life scientists with access to powerful new workflows for comprehensive exploration, rapid profiling and high-resolution quantitation of complex samples that are not possible with any other mass spectrometer. These workflows give scientists greater flexibility to do multiple types of experiments on one instrument.

Mark Molloy, Associate Professor and Director, Australian Proteome Analysis Facility at Macquarie University
“The TripleTOF™ 5600 System will enable us to gain a significant increase in proteome coverage that will really improve our ability to map differentially expressed proteins in our comparative analyses. We can acquire mass data with high accuracy at greater speed than current approaches, providing the opportunity to redefine our workflows to take advantage of this flexibility. For the first time we have the capability to combine qualitative identification with quantitation in the same instrument, and this means we can provide high quality outcomes to our academic and commercial customers.”

Andy Boorn, Chief Operating Officer, AB SCIEX
“By pioneering the breakthrough technology in the TripleTOF™ 5600 System, AB SCIEX is defining how mass spectrometry will be conducted going forward. This system addresses an unmet need for faster, more accurate answers to a variety of challenges within analytical science. We are confident it will power significant advancements at the Australian Proteome Analysis Facility as well as other laboratories globally.”
