Caprotec Syngenta deal on plant proteomics

Caprotec and Syngenta announced yesterday a deal to work together on a plant proteomics project using Caprotec's Capture Compound MS (CCMS) technology to profile active components of Syngenta in plant systems.

CCMS works by pulling out proteins using customizable molecules with the three specific functions shown in the picture above.  One for the target for your protein, one for cross-linking after recognition and a final one for sorting or pulling down the molecule.  It's pretty cool technology and worth checking out.  You can read the article from GenomeWeb here, and learn more about CCMS here.
