Awards and Accolades


Protea's LAESI DP-1000 had been recognized by sources throughout the life-science industry as a cutting edge system utilizing a technology that revolutionizes biomolecular research and pharmasutical discovery and develop. Explore below to learn more about some of these awards!

Protea was honored with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation for its introduction of the LAESI DP-1000 direct ionization system. Frost and Sullivan noted that the LAESI DP-1000 is the first platform to allow in vivo mass spectrometry, "greatly improv[ing] the efficiency of biological investigations, allowing scientists to better understand the mechanics of a pathology and the effects of drug and target interaction." The Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development.
