MORGANTOWN, W.V., June 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Protea Biosciences Group, Inc. (OTCQB:PRGB) ("Protea") announced today that it will be attending the American Society of Mass Spectrometry Annual Conference in Baltimore, MD. The Conference will take place at the Baltimore Convention Center, located at 1 West Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD 21201 from Sunday June 15th through Thursday June 19th.

"We are very much looking forward to ASMS this year as it will be our largest presence at the annual conference yet," stated Stephen Turner, Protea's CEO. He continued, "This year Protea will be presenting ten posters, one oral presentation and hosting a breakfast seminar with a scientist from the University of Oklahoma. In addition, we will have an exhibit booth and hospitality suite where conference attendees can meet with our staff and learn more about our technologies and offerings."

"We offer our clients' access to an exceptional portfolio of state-of-the-art mass spectrometry based imaging and LC-MS bioanalytical services," said Dr. Greg Kilby, Protea's Director of Molecular Imaging and Bioanalytical Services. "We are pushing the envelope in the development and application of mass spectrometry imaging, exploring synergies between LAESI and MALDI imaging and complementary LC-MS technologies. At this year's ASMS conference, we will be presenting some key examples of this work, such as using Protea acid cleavable detergents to enhance MALDI protein imaging, and high throughput LAESI-MS fungal metabolite profiling using high resolution accurate mass spectrometry."
