Product News: Mass Spec that Spans the Metabolomics Workflow

14 May 2012

Join Agilent at ASMS for an exciting and informative Mass Spec forum followed by dessert and after dinner drinks.

The Plenary address: "Mass Spectrometry-Based Metabolomics as a Unique Biochemical Approach for Therapeutic Discovery" will be presented by Gary Siuzdak, Ph.D., from The Scripps Research Institute.

Agilent is a provider of solutions for metabolomics with a comprehensive product portfolio that spans the metabolomics workflow.

Metabolomics is one of the fastest growing areas of life sciences research.

It is used in plant research for crop improvement, clinical research to better understand diseases, nutritional research to improve health through diet, pharmaceutical research to identify biomarkers for disease and spot potential toxic side effects of drug candidates earlier in development, and fermentation research to bioengineer organisms to produce valuable products.

Join Agilent on Saturday, May 19 from 7:00 - 8:00pm for their breakout tracks and a reception from 8:00 - 9:30pm:
