NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Thermo Fisher Scientific has sublicensed its Sequest protein search engine software to Sage-N Research, Sage-N said today.
Under the agreement, Sage-N will develop and sell products based on the proteomic search software, which was originally licensed to Thermo Fisher by the University of Washington.
The company said it uses Sequest with its Sorcerer integrated data appliance, a high-throughput analysis platform.
The combined platform, the Sorcerer Sequest, "has been redesigned from the ground up," and can run on multi-core CPUs, Sage-N said.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
