Drs Clive Smith and Xin Li (Principal Scientists at Sphere Fluidics Limited) were co-authors on a pioneering paper on the use of picodroplets for high-throughput mass spectrometry of protein libraries. The work was done in collaboration with Pfizer and Professors Chris Abell and Wilhelm Huck of the University of Cambridge and Radboud University, Nijmegen respectively. The paper is entitled “Sensitive, high throughput detection of proteins in individual, surfactant-stabilised picoliter droplets using nanoelectrospray ionization mass spectrometry”. The paper was published online on March 20th, 2013 and an abstract can be viewed here.
