Spark Holland, Nanoliter Partner for Fraction Collection Technology
Mar 2007
Spark Holland BV of Emmen, the Netherlands, and Nanoliter LLC of Henderson, Nev., have entered into a development partnership with the aim of developing micro- and nanoscale fraction collection methods for capillary liquid chromatographic (LC) separations. Under the agreement, Nanoliter's induction-based fluidics technology (IBF) will be used to spot pico- to microsize volumes of LC effluent into microvials, microwell plates or on Maldi (matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization) targets. The Spark Holland Alias autosampler will serve as the platform for the new product. The IBF technology enables non-contact deposition of droplets over relatively large distances with very high accuracy. The product will be used to decouple LC separations from mass spectrometric analysis in proteomics research. Decoupling of LC-ESI-MS ((liquid chromatography electrospray ionization mass spectrometry) will allow unlimited MS analysis time for eluting sample components, while fraction collection on Maldi targets will enable LC-Maldi-MS analysis, the companies said. Decoupling LC-MS also gives proteomics scientists the option of storing or reanalyzing LC fractions. The new product will become available for OEM in 2008.

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...
