Rosetta Collaborates with Sage-N Research
News Apr 20, 2006
Rosetta Biosoftware and Sage-N Research, Inc. have announced a collaboration to establish interoperability between Rosetta Biosoftware's Elucidator® system for protein expression analysis and biomarker discovery and Sage-N Research's Sorcerer™ proteomic integrated data appliance to offer customers an advanced solution for protein expression research and protein identification.
The Rosetta Elucidator system is a scalable solution for managing and analyzing large volumes of proteomics data.
It includes raw data management, the PeakTeller™ processing module to identify differentially-expressed proteins, and analysis at the peptide and protein level, enabling researchers to generate a list of candidate biomarkers from mass spectrometry data.
The Sorcerer integrated data appliance from Sage-N Research is a compact analysis system that provides processing throughput for protein identification using patent-pending Pattern Match Accelerator™ hardware and systems technology.
"We are pleased to provide our mutual customers with automation and flexibility that will significantly increase productivity for protein biomarker discovery," said Yelena Shevelenko, vice president and general manager of Rosetta Biosoftware.
"By combining the Elucidator system's power to identify differentially-expressed proteins with the Sorcerer system's high throughput, high resolution sequence searching capabilities, we are offering our customers increased throughput through automation and more time to focus on relevant scientific issues instead of validating protein search results."
"Sage-N Research and Rosetta Biosoftware share the vision of high-throughput, easy-to-use proteomic data analysis solutions," remarked David Chiang, C.E.O. and Chairman of Sage-N Research.
"By combining the capabilities of these two products that are leaders in their own arenas, we offer the scientist a powerful and comprehensive environment for MS-MS based proteomic data analysis."
The benefits of the integration are immediately available to joint customers of the Sorcerer and Elucidator systems. Sage-N Research and Rosetta Biosoftware also intend to collaborate in supporting the combined solution for customers.
