Thermo Fisher Scientific Nano-UHPLC System Significantly Increases Productivity During Proteomics Research at the University of Southern Denmark
ODENSE, Denmark (November 2, 2011) – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. the world leader in serving science, today announced that the Center for Experimental Bioinformatics (CEBI) at the University of Southern Denmark is using Thermo Scientific nano-ultra high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) technology to accelerate productivity and improve efficiencies during its proteomics research. Implementation of the Thermo Scientific EASY-nLC 1000 has enabled 34 percent more peptide and 22 percent more protein identifications within the CEBI laboratory, significantly increasing productivity. Additionally, the instrument has improved separations and facilitated the analysis of more complex samples within the laboratory.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Acquires Proteomics Workflow Solution Provider, Proxeon
WALTHAM, Mass. (April 15, 2010) – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE: TMO), the world leader in serving science, announced today that it has acquired Proxeon A/S, an innovative supplier of products for proteomics analysis headquartered in Odense, Denmark. The company is recognized for its ability to provide a simplified proteomics workflow, including nanoflow liquid chromatography systems, columns, ion sources, and bioinformatics software, to meet the need for robust high-sensitivity liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) analysis in complex proteomics applications. Proxeon had revenues of approximately $10 million in 2009 and has nearly 40 employees.
Proxeon aims to boost productivity in proteomics labs - launches EASY-nLC II for LC-MS
Proxeon announced today the release of the company's second generation instrument, EASY-nLC™ II, optimized for LC-MS applications in proteomics and providing scientists with the opportunity to significantly improve system productivity as a result of a new autosampler and upgraded software.
Proxeon expands commercial operations in Europe and Asia-Pacific
Proxeon confirmed today that the company is significantly expanding its sales and marketing network in Europe and Asia-Pacific, having signed six new distribution agreements.
Investigation confirms need for better data interpretation tools in MS-based proteomics
The need for an efficient and reliable data interpretation tool was highlighted in a recent publication in which the authors concluded: "Most notably, we found generic problems in databases to be the major hurdle for the correct characterization of proteins in the test sample." [A HUPO test sample study reveals common problems in mass spectrometry-based proteomics, Nature Methods (6, 423-430 2009)]
EASY-nLC enables discovery of oldest protein sequences ever acquired
Odense, Denmark, 05 May 2009. Proxeon's EASY-nLC, together with a Thermo Orbitrap XL, has been used to successfully analyze ancient protein dating back 80 million years. The LC-MS set-up, situated in the laboratory of Dr.John Asara, Director of the Mass Spectrometry Core at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), has provided new evidence to support the concept of protein preservation across geological time and to suggest that birds and dinosaurs are evolutionarily related.
