Document Title: 2003 R&D 100 Award: FT-MS Proteome Express
Category: People: Awards
Media Type: Photos
Date of Image/Photo: July 18, 2003
Background: The FT-MS Proteome Express is an automated mass spectrometer that not only significantly accelerates proteome analysis but also provides accuracy and depth never previously reached in proteomic studies. This breakthrough technology is the first-ever high-throughput Fourier-transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer (FT-MS) with an unprecedented ability to characterize and identify proteins, especially those that exist in small quantities. It provides quantitative analyses of proteomes, the collection of proteins that make up a cell or organism under a specific set of conditions at a specific time. This capability enables application of the FT-MS Proteome Express to understanding the role proteins play in diseases, such as cancer, and provides a basis for developing treatment drugs. The FT-MS Proteome Express will revolutionize the scientific community's ability to understand biological systems and to develop biotechnological solutions for the nation's most pressing energy and environmental problems.
