Boston U Proteomics Lab Using Nonlinear Dynamics' Analysis Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Boston University’s Cardiovascular Proteomics Center Core Laboratory is using Nonlinear Dynamics’ liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry software in its studies, under an early-access agreement, the company said today.
UK-based Nonlinear Dynamics said it collaborated with CPC researchers on final development and fine-tuning of its LC-MS v1.1 software. CPC also is using the company’s SameSpots v3.0 software for 2D gel analysis and for LC/MS analysis.
CPC already has used Nonlinear's Progenesis software to identify proteomic alterations associated with heart function that may be used to develop therapeutic strategies for treating cardiovascular disease.
Nonlinear Dynamics CEO Will Dracup said in a statement that the software can save research time and can reduce the likelihood of sample loss.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
