Agilent, Proteome Software, Pressure Biosciences, AnaSpec

Agilent Technologies and Proteome Software said this week that Proteome’s Scaffold 2.1 software now supports the processing of search results from Agilent’s Spectrum Mill protein database search engine.
As a result, researchers who load Spectrum Mill data files into Scaffold will be able to compare Spectrum Mill results with those of Mascot, Sequest, Phenyx, OMSSA and X! Tandem search engines.
Spectrum Mill searches for MS and MS/MS data in protein databases in high-throughput fashion. Scaffold validates peptides and proteins from MS/MS data, combines results from multiple search engines and graphically displays identifications in biologically relevant formats.

Pressure Biosciences this week released Proteolysis (Trypsin) PrEP, an “enhanced trypsin digestion application.”
The application is part of the company’s products using pressure cycling technology which uses pressure for sample preparation.

AnaSpec introduced 234 new peptides this week. They include Caspase 10 (CT), ER-beta (IN), and p53 (pSer6) peptide, human.
