Sage-N Research and Nonlinear Dynamics Sign Co-Marketing Agreement
News Feb 25, 2011
The Sage-N Research SORCERER appliance provides a unique combination of proprietary hardware with a range of proprietary post-processing software tools, which enable the most accurate and sensitive identification and characterization of low abundance phospho-proteins and post-translational modifications (PTMs), using its new SEQUEST 3G algorithm.
Nonlinear Dynamics’ Progenesis LC-MS software is a natural extension to this product offering as it features the much needed quantification functionality. It can be used for both differential protein expression and protein characterisation applications. Progenesis LC-MS quantifies peptides and proteins independently of identification, thus ensuring users capture all of the interesting protein data in their experiments. The software is platform independent and will integrate with a wide range of instrumentation.
The SORCERER also features high-level server based solutions for storage and back-up of the complex data-sets generated by third party applications such as Progenesis LC-MS. It also offers rapid processing of complex data-sets.
“We have found that many of Sage-N Research’s customers are increasingly concerned with achieving superior quantitation” comments Ali Pervez, vice president of marketing and sales Sage-N Research. “This can often be a rate limiting step but we believe that Nonlinear Dynamics’ Progenesis LC-MS software will assist greatly in providing a complete workflow solution.”
“A further benefit of the collaboration will be in data analysis” adds Mark Bennett, general manager of Nonlinear Dynamics U.S.A. “Often large volumes of data have to be saved and customers struggle with adequate data storage. However, this problem is solved using Sage-N Research’s SORCERER platform.”
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.
