NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Sage-N Research today announced a co-marketing agreement with UK software firm Nonlinear Dynamics.
Under the deal, Sage-N will co-market Nonlinear's Progenesis LC-MS label-free quantification software alongside Sage-N's Sorcerer proteomics platform. Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Sorcerer platform provides the "most accurate and sensitive" identification and characterization of low abundance phospho-proteins and post-translational modifications, the Milpitas, Calif.-based firm said. The Progenesis software quantifies peptides and proteins independently of identification, ensuring the capture of data pertinent to specific proteins of interest to a researcher.
"We have found that many of Sage-N Research's customers are increasingly concerned with achieving superior quantification, Ali Pervez, vice president of marketing and sales of Sage-N, said in a statement. "This can often be a rate limiting step, but we believe that Nonlinear Dynamics' Progenesis LC-MS software will assist greatly in providing a complete workflow solution."
