NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Premier Biosoft today announced a co-marketing and reselling deal with AB Sciex for lipidomic research software.
Under the terms of the deal, AB Sciex, a Danaher company, will co-market and resell Premier's SimLipid, a high-throughput lipid identification software product, for use with AB Sciex's mass spectrometers.
SimLipid profiles lipids in samples by doing a precursor search for mass spec data and provides structural information by matching product ions observed on MS/MS spectra. According to Premier, the software can be used for analyzing both low-resolution and high-resolution data.
"Combining AB Sciex's mass spectrometery data with SimLipid creates an opportunity for researchers to gain access to unparalleled information for lipid characterization," Premier President Kay Brown said in a statement.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
In 2008 Premier and AB Sciex, which at the time was part of Applied Biosystems, collaborated on the development of integrated workflows for glycomics research.
