Sciex, Protein Metrics Partner on Mass Spec Data Analysis

NEW YORK – Sciex and Protein Metrics said today that they have partnered to more thoroughly connect Protein Metrics' software suite and Sciex's high-resolution accurate mass (HRAM) spectrometry systems.

Specifically, the companies are linking Protein Metrics' Byos protein characterization software with Sciex's X500 Systems in an attempt to create an open data-analysis ecosystem that will allow biopharmaceutical companies to bring therapeutics to market more quickly, the companies noted in a statement.

The partners began integrating their products more than four years ago with Sciex's TripleTOF 5600 and Triple TOF 6600 LC-MS/MS Systems, enabling customers to track quality attributes for batches of therapeutic protein peptide maps and to characterize and quantify post-translational modifications and sequence variants.

"This demonstrates our commitment to providing an open platform that enables researchers to use the processing software of their choice with our instruments," Fraser McLeod, vice president and general manager for software at Sciex, said in a statement. "We look forward to continuing our collaborative partnership with new product launches."
