Ingenuity of Mountain View, Calif., has released a new version of its Ingenuity Pathways Analysis software. The web-delivered application allows researchers to submit gene or protein lists to Ingenuity’s database in order to find functionally annotated biological networks. New features include the ability to overlay well-known metabolic and signaling pathways on generated networks; to expand out from a single network by clicking on a node; to explore the scientific evidence that underlies the networks in a dataset; to research known drug targets to discover therapeutic implications of data; and to discover and validate biomarkers.
Eksigent Technologies of Livermore, Calif., has modified its NanoLC-1D Proteomics nanoscale HPLC. The new version can rapidly inject samples, enabling researchers to load large samples onto trap or analytical columns. In addition, it has Thermo Electron’s Xcalibur software integrated.
Amersham announced last week the release of a pre-charged Ni Sepharose High Performance medium for the purification of His-tagged proteins by affinity chromatography. According to Amersham, the new bead matrix offers the highest binding capacity currently available.
