InterVenn Biosciences OpenPIP Mass Spectrometry Analysis Software

InterVenn Biosciences has made its proprietary mass spectrometry analysis software available for public use. Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, OpenPIP reduces the time and cost of integrating and quantifying mass spec data while increasing the quality of output by eliminating observer-based bias. The software is accessed via the Google Cloud Platform and has demonstrated greater than 99 percent concordance with human peak selection, the company said. A publication detailing the specific neural network architecture is currently undergoing peer review.
