Proxeon Biosystems, a Funen based biotech company which develops and supplies products for proteomics research, plans to launch a new instrument for protein analysis in the near future. The instrument, a nanoflow-HPLC (High Pressure Liquid Chromatography – Ed) is targeted to university researchers, clinicians and pharmaceutical companies who analyse large amounts of data on protein groups, also called proteomics.

The new instrument has been beta-tested at the Institute for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Southern Denmark. Ole Nørregaard Jensen, Professor at the Institute, says that Proxeon's instrument has the great advantage of being easy to install and operate: "I think that by focusing on robustness and simplicity Proxeon has found a niche where its product will have good opportunities", he adds.

The global market for nanoflow-HPLCs for proteomics via mass spectroscopy is around 2,000 instruments annually. Michael Barrett Andersen, development director of Proxeon, says the company aims to have a market share of 5%. The news is reported by professional journal Ingeniøren (the Engineer).
