GPCR Signaling Software Application, ArrayScan HCS System, ProteinScape, Biotools, MicroHelper 1.0, GoldList 1.0


Cellomics of Pittsburgh has released its GPCR Signaling Software Application, a new component of its ArrayScan HCS System for analyzing the subcellular translocation of G-protein coupled receptors as well as other biomolecules. According to Cellomics, the software is applicable to the study of numerous biological processes and targets in addition to GPCR signaling and desensitization pathways. The application offers multiple levels of user interaction and provides multi-parametric outputs with a variety of reporting features.


As part of a series of new product releases at PittCon 2002 in New Orleans last week, Bruker Daltonics announced new capabilities for several of its software products. Its ProteinScape software for proteomics data warehousing and analysis has been updated as part of the company’s collaboration with Biacore International to include Biacore’s functional surface plasmon resonance data on protein-protein or protein-ligand interactions, as well as Bruker’s mass spectrometry data on protein identification and characterization. In addition, version 2.1 of Bruker’s Biotools software for protein data interpretation now offers automated protein identification via library search and automated routines to manage the protein identifications using MALDI-TOF fingerprints, MALDI-TOF/TOF and LC-MS/MS data. Release 2.2 of Bruker’s HyStar software for chromatography experiments now supports the Agilent 1100 LC and CE systems, the Dionex/LC-Packings UltiMate capillary LC-system, and the Waters CapLC system and Alliance LC systems.


Chang Bioscience of San Francisco has released MicroHelper 1.0 and GoldList 1.0, software for microarray data analysis and sequence data management, respectively. Both applications are available for PC and Mac and are available for an introductory rate of $65 each through April 21 at
