Sage-N Research and Nonlinear Dynamics have signed a co-marketing deal to combine their respective product offerings to provide a workflow solution for proteomics laboratories.
Under the terms of the agreement, Sage-N Research will market Nonlinear Dynamics' Progenesis LC-MS label-free quantification software alongside its Sorcerer proteomics platform.
Ali Pervez, vice president of marketing and sales at Sage-N Research, said his firm believes that the Progenesis software will help tackle problems associated with “achieving superior quantitation” which he described as a common “rate-limiting step” for customers.
Mark Bennett, general manager of Nonlinear Dynamics’ US operations, added that the Sorcerer platform will provide a storage resource for his company’s customers to store the large quantities of data they produce.
Sorcerer combines proprietary hardware with a range of proprietary post-processing software tools that enable users to identify and characterize low-abundance phospho-proteins and post-translational modifications. The tool also includes server-based solutions for storage and back-up of datasets.
The Progenesis software can be used for both differential protein expression and protein characterization applications and enables users to quantify peptides and proteins independently of identification.
