Sage-N Research to Open R&D Center in China for Proteomics Informatics Development

NEW YORK, Dec 14 (GenomeWeb News) - Sage-N Research said today that it will open a research and development center in the NewSciencePark in Shanghai, China, in "early 2006."


Sage-N, a developer of accelerated proteomics informatics tools, said the Shanghai center will expand its software-development capabilities. The company's headquarters will remain in San Jose, Calif., and will focus on marketing, sales, and administration.


Sage-N has developed an accelerated analysis appliance called Sorcerer, as well as the the Sequest Sorcerer system marketed by Thermo Electron. The company's flagship product, Sorcerer Proteomics Edition, is a high-throughput proteomics analysis system.


The company said that the Shanghai center will "work closely with leading proteomics scientists to quickly and cost-effectively incorporate new technologies and applications into the Sorcerer appliance in the form of plug-in modules."


The first modules are expected to eliminate false positive results, provide multiple peptide scoring functions, and offer "extensive" post-translational modification searches, the company said.
