Veritomyx PeakInvestigator

Veritomyx has launched PeakInvestigator software services, which applies advanced signal processing algorithms to reveal peaks and biomarkers previously hidden within overlaps in raw mass spectral data. The result is more complete and precise peak lists that increase discovery rate and provide faster, more accurate biomarker identification and quantitation results from existing raw mass spectral files, the company said. The software-as-a-service product can be embedded in any mass spectrometric workflow, or accessed independently for post-processing of mass spec outputs. It processes raw mass spectral scans, and delivers an effective 3x to 4X resolution increase beyond that visible in the original data.
