Genedata Expressionist for Mass Spectrometry Showcased at 2013 Biotherapeutics Analytical Summit
News Mar 13, 2013
Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for drug discovery and life science research, has announced that Genedata Expressionist® for Mass Spectrometry will be showcased in the "Establishing Analytical Support for Manufacturing" session of the 2013 Biotherapeutics Analytical Summit. The session will present workflows for analyzing glycosylation events using Genedata Expressionist. The Genedata platform automates and standardizes protein characterization within a single high-throughput system to significantly improve sample throughput and result reproducibility. The presentation will be given on March 13 (Royal Sonesta Harbor Court) by Dr. Monica Lane from Genzyme.
Genedata Expressionist for Mass Spectrometry is a comprehensive, enterprise software solution that efficiently manages, processes and analyzes massive amounts of mass spectrometry data. With a proven track record of success in the biopharmaceutical industry, it analyzes mass spectrometry data for a variety of tasks related to protein characterization, such as identification and quantification of Post Translational Modifications (PTMs). Instrument-agnostic, Genedata Expressionist integrates and analyzes raw data from any mass spectrometry technology and vendor, serving as an integration platform for analytical labs using a variety of mass spectrometry instruments. By automating routine data analysis, Genedata Expressionist has been successfully applied along the biopharmaceutical R&D and manufacturing pipelines to improve quality control and sample analytics.
Standardized Platform Accelerates Research - Reduces Research Costs
Thriving on large experimental data sets, Genedata Expressionist has been proven to reduce data analysis time from weeks to a few hours. By enhancing productivity, improving data quality and accelerating time-to-market, Genedata Expressionist contributes to significant cost savings by several orders of magnitude.
The Genedata session at the Biotherapeutics Analytical Summit will demonstrate how leading pharmaceutical companies have successfully automated the analysis of mass spectrometry data for site-specific glycosylation of biopharmaceuticals. The qualitative and quantitative analysis of glycosylation presents data analysis challenges, which Genedata Expressionist solves with a platform for fast comparability of biotherapeutic batches, ensuring consistent manufacturing processes.
"Genedata Expressionist for Mass Spectrometry provides our customers with a highly valuable platform that automates the processing of mass spec data in the context of characterizing biotherapeutics," noted Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. "In particular, our solution's innovative visualizations enable quick and reproducible decision making. The elimination of data analysis bottlenecks generates tremendous cost and time savings, making Genedata Expressionist nothing short of a killer application for the bioanalytics industry," continued Pfannes.
Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost total darkness, images of such transparent features or objects are nearly impossible to decipher. But now, engineers at MIT have developed a technique that can reveal these “invisible” objects, in the dark.
For scientists wrestling with problems as diverse as containing superhot plasma in a fusion reactor, improving the accuracy of weather forecasts, or probing the unexplained dynamics of a distant galaxy, turbulence-spawning shear flow is a serious complicating factor. A new supercomputer-powered effort aims to make modelling shear far easier.
