Waters to Partner with Umetrics AB
News May 31, 2006
Waters will begin offering scientists a direct link to Umetrics™ SIMCA™-P multivariate statistical analysis software as an option compatible with Waters® MarkerLynx™ 4.1 Software.
SIMCA-P provides users of data analyzed by MarkerLynx Software with a full suite of advanced statistical tools including partial least squares discriminate analysis (PLSDA) and orthogonal partial least squares (OPLS).
These advanced statistical tools along with a complete graphical display suite allow researchers to visualize their data and extract meaningful information from their experimental results.
The combination of MarkerLynx and SIMCA-P software gives scientists using liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry instrumentation for basic research in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and food and beverage fields an approach to data mining.
John Shockcor, Ph.D., Business Development Manager for Metabolic Profiling at Waters Corporation stated, "Today’s scientists are seeking novel ways of mining datasets obtained from LC/MS analysis of complex mixtures."
"The combination of MarkerLynx and Umetrics SIMCA-P software provides researchers with easy and effective methods to accomplish this task and extract potentially critical information from the data."
Svante Wold, VP R&D of Umetrics, commented, "Modern analytical instrumentation generates large amounts of information-rich data."
"Combined with the powerful chemometrics data analytical methodology implemented in Umetrics’ SIMCA-P software, the scientist is provided with a broad approach for investigating the properties of complex samples from processes in the pharmaceutical, biotech, and neighboring areas."
"Integrated and graphically oriented solutions like the combination of Waters and Umetrics software make it faster to pursue, visualize, and interpret the results from these investigations."
Stormwater Ponds Not a Significant Source of Climate-Warming N2ONews
Stormwater retention ponds, a ubiquitous feature in developed landscapes worldwide, are not a significant source of climate-warming nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, a new study finds.
