Metabolomics Australia to Use SpectralWorks Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Metabolomics Australia will use SpectralWorks' AnalyzerPro MS data mining software under an agreement announced today.

UK-based SpectralWorks said that Metabolomics Australia has network nodes established at University of Melbourne in Victoria, the University of Quuensland, the Australian Wine Research Institute, the University of Western Australia, and Murdoch University. The software will be used in these facilities for standardized data processing of GC-MS-based metabolite profiling.

SpectralWorks said that an additional processing module, the MatrixAnalyzer, which is supplied with AnalyzerPro, allows normalized and semi-quantitative data to be produced from a sequence of samples. The firm expects its software to be used to extend the overall metabolomics workflow to cover LC-MS data processing requirements.
