The partnership with Bruker will provide scientists with a complete workflow, from single cell isolation and sample preparation to results, for label-free single cell proteomics analyses.
Cellenion, a BICO company, announced today a co-marketing agreement with Bruker to advance label-free single cell proteomics analyses. The goal of this partnership is to combine Cellenion’s cellenONE® single cell isolation and dispensing platform with Bruker’s timsTOF SCP mass spectrometers to deliver end-to-end label-free single cell 4D-proteomics solution. The combination of these two instruments will allow automated sample preparation from single cell isolation to Mass Spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics analysis on single cells.
Cellenion has developed cellenONE®, a unique single-cell isolation and nanoliter dispensing technology allowing high throughput image-based dispensing of individual cells from cell suspensions and precision dispensing of reagents to automate and miniaturize sample preparation prior to single cells analyses.
Dr. Holger Eickhoff, CEO of Cellenion and SCIENION, BICOs Business Area Director Bioautomation, said, “We believe our expertise in precision dispensing and platform technology for up to 100% single cells isolation accuracy and Bruker’s expertise in developing mass spectrometers such as the timsTOF SCP for single cell proteomics are a perfect match. This partnership will benefit our mutual users as the cellenONE provides automated single cell isolation and miniaturized sample preparation using our patented nanoliter dispensing technology.”
Dr. Rohan Thakur, Executive Vice President, Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry at Bruker, said, “We are excited to partner with Cellenion and their cellenONE platform. This partnership of unique technologies provides our users with the ability to simplify and standardize single cell 4D-proteomics workflows. This is important because it allows researchers to contrast knowledge learned from decades of bulk proteomics to new discoveries being made in single cell proteomics using the cellenONE together with the timsTOF SCP system.”
