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.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
