Tags: , , ,

Labcyte biopharma partners with AstraZeneca, a big pharma company, to use acoustic dispensing combined with mass spectrometry to greatly advance drug discovery applications.

Labcyte, who developed and commercialized acoustic liquid handling, recently developed techniques for the direct loading of samples into mass spectrometers.

This capability creates the potential for high throughput, low cost, label-free analysis.

AstraZeneca is supporting this development effort with the goal of expanding mass spectrometry-based analysis throughout the entire drug discovery and development process.

The development of an instrument that enables the delivery of test samples into a mass spectrometer through acoustic dispensing will generate better results with lower costs compared to traditional systems, which can be prone to transfer errors and sample contamination.
