LECO and Genedata Collaborate on Mass Spectrometry Data Analysis
News Sep 27, 2012
Genedata and LECO have announced their collaboration, which brings to market Genedata Expressionist® MSX software compatibility with LECO High Resolution TOFMS (HRT) instrumentation.
Designed for complex sample analysis, LECO’s HRT technology provides acquisition speeds of up to 200 spectra/second, mass resolution up to 100,000 FWHM, and mass accuracy less than 1 ppm.
Genedata Expressionist MSX is a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for the analysis of mass spectrometry data generated in metabolomics experiments.
“For LECO customers, it will be a great advantage to be able to utilize Expressionist MSX, together with our HRT platform, in their metabolomics applications,” said Dr. Jeff Patrick, director of Marketed Technology, LECO Separation Science.
Dr. Patrick continued, “We understand the unique challenges of metabolomics, and we are proud to provide instrumentation with the speed, sensitivity, resolution, and data-handling tools necessary to meet these challenges head-on. We look forward to a continued collaboration with Genedata that will effectively leverage our mutual capabilities.”
“With the ability to efficiently process raw MS data from LECO instrumentation, Expressionist MSX will enable scientists to quickly address a wide range of metabolomics questions, capitalizing on the high-performance of HRT output,” noted Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata.
Dr. Pfannes continued, “Our collaboration with LECO empowers researchers and advances innovative discovery in pharmaceutical, industrial biotechnology, and life science companies.”

Eating Activates Calorie-Burning FatNews
The importance of the human brown adipose tissue (BAT) has become clearer during the past ten years. Coldness is one of the most effective activators of the BAT metabolic function but, in rodents, eating has also been shown to activate BAT. The debate on whether eating has the same effect on humans has lasted for decades. Now, the researchers at Turku PET Centre have proven that having a meal increases oxygen consumption in human BAT to the same extent as coldness.READ MORE
