The co-marketing agreement aims to advance research involving marker studies, drug metabolite profiling, lipid and proteomics analysis using MALDI-IMS technology.

PREMIER Biosoft and JEOL announce that they have signed a co-marketing agreement for MALDIVision, a MALDI Imaging Mass Spectrometry (MALDI IMS) data analysis tool. The collaboration aims to provide a comprehensive tool for advancing research involving marker studies, drug metabolite profiling, lipid and proteomics analysis using MALDI-IMS technology. Under this agreement, JEOL will promote MALDIVision along with its JMS-S3000 SpiralTOF™ Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer.

MALDIVision visualizes and analyzes spatial distribution of analytes in a sampled tissue section. MALDIVision is the only tool on the market to seamlessly load and analyze imaging data files up to 20 GB. The program generates high quality reconstituted MALDI images in 2D and 3D based on the m/z value of target compounds. Users can overlay up to 10 MALDI images for visualization of spatial distribution of different compounds present in a sample.

According to Yoshihisa Ueda, the general manager of the Mass Spectrometry Business Unit JEOL Ltd., “Our JMS-S3000 SpiralTOF™ has the highest mass resolving power among any MALDI-TOFMS on the market. This imposes a unique challenge to the imaging data analysis software; the amount of information and, thus, the size of the imaging data from SpiralTOF is also the largest. After rigorous evaluation, we found that MALDIVision can process such data flawlessly. We are quite excited that, by combining SpiralTOF and MALDIVision, now we can offer a powerful and unique solution for the cutting edge research in life science and material science.”

“Mass Spectrometry is a rapidly growing platform for biomarker discovery. This collaboration will provide the research community, especially in the Asia-Pacific region, with a powerful tool to support mass spectrometry based imaging applications,” said Arun Apte, CEO at PREMIER Biosoft.

Keeping Tumor Growth at Bay
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets.
Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball
A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
Chemical Used to Replace BPA is Potentially Toxic
This study is the first to examine the effects of BPA and BPS on brain cells and genes that control the growth and function of organs involved in reproduction.
A Better Model for Parkinson's
Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.
Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles
A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.
