San Jose, CA, May 18, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- AnaSpec, one of the world’s leading providers of custom and catalog peptides, has introduced ClearPoint™ Peptides, heavy isotope-labeled peptides for absolute quantitation (AQUA) of proteins.
The use of mass spectrometry (MS) has helped advanced proteomics research by providing qualitative information of thousands of known and unknown proteins. By spiking protein tryptic digests with internal heavy isotope labeled peptide standards, MS becomes an absolute quantitation (AQUA) method.1
AnaSpec’s ClearPoint™ peptides offer a choice of heavy hydrogen (2H), carbon (13C), or nitrogen (15N)-isotopes specifically labeled at single, multiple or universal positions. They are available as both custom or catalog peptides.
AnaSpec, Inc. is a leading provider of integrated proteomics solutions to pharmaceutical, biotech, and academic research institutions throughout the world. With a vision for innovation through synergy, AnaSpec focuses on three core technologies: peptides, detection reagents (dyes, assay kits, & antibodies), and combinatorial chemistry.
