Reichert Life Sciences Collaborates with Ridgeview Instruments AB
Product News Sep 23, 2013
Reichert Life Sciences now offers TraceDrawer an advanced molecular interaction data analysis software from Ridgeview Instruments AB for use with our SR7000DC and SR7500DC surface plasmon resonance systems.
Data acquisition with Reichert’s SPRAutolink software and data analysis with Ridgeview’s Tracedrawer software are now fully integrated into one powerful package.
The need for understanding how molecules bind to each other is critical in research and for the development of drugs and therapeutic antibodies.
The collaboration between Reichert Life Sciences and Ridgeview Instruments AB, Uppsala Sweden, provides distinct advantages to customers by combining data acquisition software and data analysis software into one integrated SPR system for use in all research and development laboratories.
TraceDrawer data analysis software is used for data fitting and to summarize results obtained for a wide variety of biomolecular interactions.
TraceDrawer and SPRAutolink are fully linked together. Just one click from the Post-Processing screen in SPRAutolink automatically transfers your data directly to Tracedrawer for analysis, thus eliminating the need to manually export data to an external data analysis program. This integration enables efficient and cost-effective analyses of molecular interactions.
Thomas E. Ryan, Chief Scientist of Reichert Technologies Life Sciences said: “TraceDrawer brings a new level of sophistication to Reichert Technologies Surface Plasmon Resonance Systems. Data analysis and reporting is now seamlessly integrated into Reichert’s “Autolink” instrument operation and data collection software. The software features excellent data fitting algorithms, numerous kinetic models, the capability to combine data sets from many experiments or surfaces and numerous reporting options. Our partners at Ridgeview Instruments have created a world class data analysis package.”
Dr. Karl Andersson, CEO of Ridgeview Instruments AB said: “We are pleased to see that TraceDrawer, our multi-purpose evaluation platform for advanced molecular interaction analysis, is implemented in Reichert Technologies Life Sciences SPR systems. I am convinced that TraceDrawer will make the customers of Reichert Technologies more productive through better understanding of their molecules leading to faster decisions. For Ridgeview Instruments AB, this collaboration is yet another proof that the open innovation philosophy of TraceDrawer is a winning concept that brings significant value both to instrument vendors and the scientific community on a global scale.”
