ProteoMetrics Launches Radars Knexus Proteomics Software

NEW YORK, Nov 9 – ProteoMetrics has released new high-throughput software for protein identification, called Radars Knexus, the company said Thursday. The product is a simplified interface for analyzing and storing results from medium-scale proteomics experiments.

Radars Knexus combines the New York-based company’s ProFound search engine with its Radars proteomic data analysis system to simplify the process of analyzing batches of mass spectral data. Protein sequence databases are searched with the algorithms from Radars using information from mass spectral peptide maps generated by any mass spectrometer.

The integration of these programs provides automated data retrieval and comparative analysis. According to ProteoMetrics, this gives scientists reduced error rates, optimized analyses, rapid results, customized reports, and easy data storage.

“The handling and analysis of the large volumes of data that easily can be generated even in small proteomics laboratories is a major difficulty,” said David Fenyo, president of ProteoMetrics. “Radars Knexus fills a void by providing a cost-effective solution for automated analysis in medium-scale proteomics projects.”

The company offers free downloads of many of its programs from its website. ProteoMetrics also sells licenses and support for its products for researchers who need more security and faster search capabilities.
