Applied Biosystems, Spotfire Integrate Protein Analysis Software

SAN FRANCISCO, July 15 - Applied Biosystems signed an agreement with Spotfire to integrate protein expression analysis software, the companies said today.


The software will integrate Spotfire's DecisionSite for Functional Genomics software with ICAT software that Applied Biosystems developed with MDS Sciex.


Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.


"As a result of this collaborative effort, researchers using Pro ICAT software for the ABI QSTAR Pulsar Hybrid LC/MS/MS system and Spotfire's DecisionSite for Functional Genomics software should have a unified interface for accessing and analyzing protein expression data," Spotfire CEO Christopher Ahlberg said in a statement.
