Bioinquire this week launched ProteoIQ, version 1.2, a bioinformatics tool for proteomics data analysis.
The new version provides researchers an automated method for identifying post-translational modifications “in a manner that was not previously possible,” the company said in a statement, and new functionality is designed for researchers using strategies involving separations at the protein level followed by digestion and separation at the peptide level.
ProteoIQ will be showcased at the annual meeting of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities next week.
Protea Biosciences this week introduced the GPR-800 instrument, which simultaneously recovers eight proteins from gels in less than 20 minutes.
The system uses a novel protein surfactant that solubilizes the protein and then degrades, eliminating any interference with the mass spectrometer. The GPR-800 plastic microchips allow recovery in a closed system “with minimal dead volume, assuring no introduction of contaminants,” Protea said in a statement.
