PALO ALTO, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Cell Biosciences, Inc., a provider of nanoproteomic analysis systems to life science researchers, today announced the launch of the Cell Biosciences CB1000 protein analysis system, a next-generation platform for ultrasensitive characterization of cell signaling proteins. The CB1000 establishes a new standard for sensitivity, reproducibility, and ease-of-use for researchers studying signaling pathways in limited samples, such as small tumor biopsies and stem cells. The CB1000 will be unveiled at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) 100th Annual Meeting, April 18-22, 2009, in Denver, Colorado (booth 2039).
The CB1000 system measures phosphorylation events and other protein post-translational modifications using capillary-based nanofluidic immunoassays, and builds upon the fundamental technology of its predecessor, the Firefly(TM) 3000 system. The advanced design of the CB1000 system provides significant improvements in assay performance and automation, including a doubling of sample throughput. Assay reproducibility and stability have been increased through the incorporation of precise temperature control systems. In addition, the CB1000's software package, Compass(TM), features dramatic improvements in data analysis speed.
