Correlogic and JEOL Team to Advance Mass Spectrometry
Correlogic Systems Inc. and JEOL Ltd. announced yesterday they have formalized a yearlong collaboration by signing a research and development agreement to enhance the performance of mass spectrometry in a clinical setting. Specific details of the agreement were not disclosed. Tokyo-based JEOL makes scientific instruments used for R&D in nanotechnology, life sciences, optical communication, forensics and biotechnology. Correlogic, based in Rockville, Md., develops pattern-recognition technologies for use in biomarker discovery, disease detection and new drug discovery.
- mass spectrometry
- An instrumental technique that utilizes the mass-to-charge ratio of charged particles as recorded from a mass spectrometer in order to determine the mass of a particle as well as the chemical makeup, or elemental ionic composition of a given sample or molecule.
- The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
