Nov. 7, 2011: [Materials Provided] The paper “Immunobeads-Mass Spectrometry” published.

 The second paper from the Koichi Tanaka Laboratory of Advanced Science and Technology was published in “Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry,” a prominent academic journal that posts breaking news regarding the latest technologies in the field of mass spectrometry. By “planting” an antibody on the very fine surface of an immunobead, beta amyloid in the solution was recovered. Then, high-sensitivity detection at the level of 1 fmol was achieved using direct measurement by MALDI-MS.
