It comes as professor Tiannan Guo's laboratory at Westlake Institute for Advanced Study (WIAS) has been named as Pressure's first Center of Excellence (CoE) in China.
Guo and Professor Ruedi Aebersold in Switzerland are co-developing PCT-SWATH, which is a novel method, which combines Pressure BioSciences' patented pressure cycling technology (PCT) platform with cutting-edge analytical capabilities of SCIEX's mass spectrometry SWATH method.
SCIEX, the life sciences tech firm, signed an exclusive co-marketing agreement with the firm in early 2016 to improve protein quantitation in complex samples.
"We are very pleased that Professor Guo will be leading the effort to establish and then direct our first CoE in China, " said Dr Nate Lawrence, vice president of marketing and sales.
"This Center is the first of its kind in Asia and joins our other Centers of Excellence in Europe and Australia as an important pillar in our global marketing and sales strategy.
"We believe Professor Guo's vast experience with the PCT platform, his expertise in proteomics and lipidomics, and his fluency in both Chinese and English will be invaluable in helping PBI quickly and successfully expand into the large life sciences market in China."
Guo added: "I believe strongly that PCT will have a significant impact in helping research scientists in China and around the world make new discoveries in multiple fields, including proteomics, genomics, lipidomics, and metabolomics."
