SomaLogic and Illumina have announced a co-development agreement aimed at “democratizing and accelerating our understanding of the human proteome” – in the words of proteomics SomaLogic Chief Executive Officer Roy Smythe. SomaLogic’s SomaScan Proteomics Assay will be applied to Illumina's high throughput next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms. “Proteins play a central role in cellular function and health, and NGS can support a greater understanding of this role by unlocking biological insights at scale,” said Illumina Chief Technology Officer Alex Aravanis. 

NanoMosaic, a biotech company developing nanoneedle technology for multi-omics applications, has signed a lease for a standalone building of 30,880 square feet in Waltham, MA, USA, to house its Multi-Omics World Headquarters. “This expansion allows for large scale, vertically integrated manufacturing of the Tessie instrument, consumables and reagents,” said Joe Wilkinson COO of NanoMosaic. 

Sticking with ‘omics, Bruker has acquired Prolab Instruments – a Swiss technology company specializing in micro and nano-UHPLC pump technology. Prolab’s Zirconium, a nano-LC to cap-LC split-less pump, optimized for proteomics results, is already part of Bruker’s nanoElute system, and the companies are planning more tech mashups in the proteomics and metabolomics fields. 

The US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Office of Regulatory Affairs has purchased Waters’ Empower Chromatography Data Software and NuGenesis Laboratory Management Software to support its medical products testing operations across its five field science laboratories. Waters will also install the hardware, assist with instrument qualification and software validation, and train site analysts.

About the Author
James Strachan

Over the course of my Biomedical Sciences degree it dawned on me that my goal of becoming a scientist didn’t quite mesh with my lack of affinity for lab work. Thinking on my decision to pursue biology rather than English at age 15 – despite an aptitude for the latter – I realized that science writing was a way to combine what I loved with what I was good at.

From there I set out to gather as much freelancing experience as I could, spending 2 years developing scientific content for International Innovation, before completing an MSc in Science Communication. After gaining invaluable experience in supporting the communications efforts of CERN and IN-PART, I joined Texere – where I am focused on producing consistently engaging, cutting-edge and innovative content for our specialist audiences around the world.
