Agilent Technologies’ GeneSpring MS Allows Users to Apply Tools, Visualizations to QQQ Data
Product News Jun 08, 2007
Agilent Technologies has announced the release of the latest version of its GeneSpring MS, an application for biomarker discovery using mass spectrometry data.
GeneSpring MS 1.1 allows for the import of data produced by the Agilent 6410 Triple Quadrupole (QQQ) liquid chromatography/mass spectrometer (LC/MS) system, enabling users to analyze their QQQ quantitative batch result files with GeneSpring MS’s myriad statistical tools and visualizations.
In addition, GeneSpring MS 1.1 supports data files in the exchange format mzXML, allowing customers using a variety of different mass spectrometry instruments and vendors to standardize their biomarker discovery workflow.
The software enables discovery of protein and metabolite biomarkers through the analysis of mass spectrometry data. It provides a large number of statistical algorithms to compare the abundant information obtained from biomarker profiling workflows using time-of-flight (TOF), quadrupole TOF and QQQ MS systems.
Researchers can import, analyze and visualize gas chromatography/mass spectrometer and LC/MS data from large sample sets and complex experimental designs. Using a comprehensive array of powerful statistical analyses, GeneSpring MS can profile proteins or small molecules associated with changes in cellular function, enabling the discovery of biomarkers that may potentially detect disease or drug toxicity.
GeneSpring MS 1.1 allows users to screen vastly larger numbers of potentially interesting biomarkers before they are identified. This powerful workflow is made simple using a graphical analysis tool, simplifying the biomarker discovery workflow.
