Geneva Bioinformatics (GeneBio) S.A. has announced a partnership agreement with Proteomic Solutions. Under the terms of the agreement, Proteomic Solutions will distribute Phenyx throughout France.
GeneBio’s Phenyx is a software platform for the identification and characterization of proteins and peptides from mass spectrometry data.
Developed by GeneBio in collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) and incorporating the true probabilistic and flexible scoring system OLAV, Phenyx is designed to meet the concurrent demands of high-throughput MS data analysis and dynamic high quality results assessment.
GeneBio has recently communicated major updates to Phenyx, including the release of a dynamic Web-based client interface to implement the platform.
“We are delighted to once again be working with Proteomic Solutions in order to strengthen our presence in the key French mass spectrometry area,” said Nasri Nahas, CEO of GeneBio.
“Proteomic Solutions is a well known player in the Proteomics field and we look forward to capitalizing on their experience and expertise in order to expand the reach of Phenyx in the French market.”
“We are excited to again be working with GeneBio and believe that the Phenyx platform will have great traction in the market,” said Philippe Dutriat, CEO of Proteomic Solutions.
