NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Waters said today that it is collaborating with Proteome Software to make data from its proteomics instruments compatible with Proteome Software’s informatics offerings.
Under the agreement, researchers using Waters’ IdentityE High Definition Proteomics System will be able to view their results on Proteome Software’s Scaffold 2.1 visualization software.
The integrated software should be available in the fourth quarter of 2008, Waters said.
James Langridge, director of Waters’ proteomics business, said in a statement that Scaffold’s ability to visualize proteomics results “will allow scientists to maximize the information” from Waters’ LC-MS technology.
"Researchers will improve their chances of identifying significant proteins if they can easily visualize mass spec data in a biological context," Proteome Software’s president, Mark Turner, said in a statement.
Waters’ IdentityE system includes the company’s NanoAcquity UPLC system, its Synapt High-Definition MS System or Q-Tof Premier mass spectrometer, data-acquisition and mass resolution tools, and the ProteinLynx GlobalServer software.
