Waters and Rosetta Biosoftware Collaborate to Advance the Analysis of Complex Biological Mixtures
News May 31, 2007
Specifically, the companies will work together to ensure that Rosetta Biosoftware's solution for protein expression data management and analysis, the Rosetta Elucidator® system, will process and analyze mass spectrometry data generated from the Waters® Q-Tof Premier™ and Synapt™ High Definition Mass Spectrometry™ (HDMS) Systems.
The collaboration will focus on developing software interfaces between the Elucidator system and Waters instrument systems that will give scientists the capability to perform comprehensive qualitative and quantitative profiling of complex biological mixtures.
"We are pleased to enable compatibility between the Elucidator system, and our innovative UPLC/MSE data acquisition methods and instruments," said Tim Riley, Vice President and Managing Director – Pharmaceutical Business Operations, Waters Division.
"This collaboration will enable more of our customers to take advantage of our advanced mass spec technologies to comprehensively analyze the results of their most demanding experiments," Riley added.
"Collaboration with Waters will allow us to rapidly adapt to advances in Waters instrument technology, ensuring that our customers have continued access to a robust end-to-end solution," said Yelena Shevelenko, Vice President and General Manager of Rosetta Biosoftware. "The streamlined integration will improve research productivity and provide solutions for a broader scientific audience."
The Waters Corporation and Rosetta Biosoftware will be exhibiting their latest technologies at the 55th American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) Conference on Mass Spectrometry, June 3 - 7, 2007 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers have found that extracellular RNA (exRNA) in urine may be a source of biomarkers for the two most common forms of muscular dystrophy, noninvasively providing information about whether therapeutic drugs are having the desired effects on a molecular level.READ MORE
Is there a link between differences in IQ test performance and the activity of certain genes? Researchers have shown that modifications in the structure of a specific gene have a negative impact on individual test performance. This suggests that environmentally-induced epigenetic changes to our genetic material have a greater impact on intelligence than previously thought.
