AstraZeneca is collaborating with Medicines Discovery Catapult for Acoustic Mist Ionisation Mass Spectrometry
AMI-MS introduces a twenty-fold improvement in throughput compared to traditional mass spectrometry. AMI use sound energy to introduce the sample into the detector rather than via a needle. A mist of charged droplets are lifted from the surface of a sample into the mass spectrometer. This method is contactless and contamination free with a sample being able to be analyzed every three seconds.
“This deal will allow small, medium enterprises (SME) access to the state-of-the-art bio analytical technology through research partnerships with Catapult. The collaboration will allow AstraZeneca to further unlock the potential of Acoustic Mist Ionisation Mass Spectrometry (AMI-MS) by accessing Medicines Discovery Catapults technical expertise” said the organisation.
