Thermo Electron Unveils a Suite of Proteomics Instrumentation
News Aug 30, 2005
Thermo will be previewing its latest additions to Proteomicsn - BioSIEVE software for large scale biomarker discovery experiments and its ProSight® PC software for top down protein analysis at HUPO 4th Annual World Congress, International Congress Centre Munich, Germany, August 28 to September 1 2005.
Other products being showcased on booth 301 include the new LTQ Orbitrap, the Finnigan LTQ FT, Finnigan v MALDI ion source and KingFisher 96.
Previewing at HUPO 2005 is Thermo's BioSIEVE software which enables rigorous statistical comparison of multiple LC/MS datasets from sample populations in large biomarker discovery experiments. The software uses a proprietary, label-free quantitative algorithm, eliminating the need for expensive tagging reagents. A highly visual interface allows results and data to be reviewed easily, making it a powerful, yet practical tool for biomarker discovery.
Also previewing at the show is the new ProSight PC software, which when combined with the Finnigan LTQ FT hybrid mass spectrometer provides the ideal system for top-down protein sequencing. With ProSight PC, it is now possible to structurally identify individual protein isoforms with mass spectrometry.
Two proteins that activate the fastest molecule in our nerve cells have been identified by researchers at University of Warwick. This mechanism is responsible for transport through our nervous system. This finding could lead to a new therapeutic treatments for people with hereditary spastic paraplegia and other neurological disorders.READ MORE
