InforSense® and Matrix Announce Collaboration to Deliver Integrative Proteomic Analysis
News Apr 06, 2006
InforSense Ltd., a leader in integrative analytics platforms, has entered into a collaboration with Matrix Science Ltd, a supplier of software for protein identification and characterization, to integrate their technologies.
Matrix Science also becomes the 19th member of InforSense's Open Workflow Partner Network, a program to provide proven integrated technologies to joint customers in the life science domain.
The integration of Matrix Science's Mascot search tool and data management product, Mascot Integra, with InforSense's workflow-based integrative analytics platform, InforSense KDE, enables life science researchers both to query comprehensive proteomic data using an intuitive visual workflow interface and also to include proteomics data analysis within broader cross-discipline research programs.
"The collaboration between InforSense and Matrix Science will deliver an extended environment for flexible, ad hoc querying of high volumes of proteomics data," said Dr. John Cottrell, CEO of Matrix Science.
"InforSense workflows enable life science researchers to compose and execute scientific analyses quickly and easily without programming, sharing both methods and results with co-workers."
"Mascot has become a key vendor in both academic and commercial proteomics laboratories for protein identification and we are pleased to have the opportunity to work with them," commented Dr. Jonathan Sheldon, Chief Scientific Officer, InforSense.
"The integration of proteomic data analysis with InforSense KDE is a key component of our multidisciplinary analytics platform for Systems Biology."
