Following our earlier blog post announcing that we had embarked on a major project with Waters Corporation to supply software as part of their new ‘Omics Research Platform Solution we can bring you a progress update. The formal agreement has been signed and a press release made by Waters Corporation, which was reported the same day by GenomeWeb News.
TransOmics™ Informatics software is exclusive to Waters and separate to our own Progenesis LC-MS and Progenesis CoMet software but combines core features of the Progenesis approach with ProteinLynx™ Global SERVER 3.0 and MarkerLynx™ XS for HDMS data analysis.
Representatives from both Waters and Nonlinear have shared what they think this solution will provide.
“The complexity of biological samples is so great that the sensitivity and specificity of analytical techniques required for biological discovery presents scientists with significant challenges when it comes to managing experimental data,” said James Langridge, Ph.D., Director of Pharmaceutical & Life Sciences Discovery, Waters Division. “We believe that through our partnership with Nonlinear Dynamics we can address this situation and advance the pace of discovery.”
“I’m delighted to see this exciting partnership bring together the latest MS technology with world-renowned data analysis software,” said Will Dracup, Executive Chairman, Nonlinear Dynamics. “Researchers today are faced with large, complex data sets and they need to be able to visualize this and extract reliable results. The software Nonlinear has developed specifically addresses these issues, unlocking the potential of the valuable, content-rich, omics data that Waters’ ion mobility technology generates.”
Our team of software developers, application scientists and product specialists have been involved in helping to demo the software at recent events including ASMS 2012 held in Vancouver Canada, May 2012 and the EuPA/BSPR meeting held in the UK, July 2012. Our team have reported back on the high number of visitors with keen interest at both the Waters demonstration sessions and both the companies stands.
Waters Omics Research Platform Solutions with TransOmics Informatics provide analysis of complex data sets generated by large-scale proteomics and metabolomics experiments.
