PREMIER Biosoft International Releases SimGlycan® 2.92 with Support for Multi Stage Mass Spectrometry Data Analysis
Product News Nov 23, 2010
PREMIER Biosoft International has announced the worldwide release of version 2.92 of its MS data analysis tool, SimGlycan®. The program now includes comprehensive support to perform multi-stage/sequential mass spectrometry (MSn) data analysis which involves re-fragmentation of product ions.
Multi-stage mass analysis provides structural information that is useful in structure elucidation of metabolites, glycopeptides and glycans. It aids in discrimination of glycans having similar characteristic fragment ions at MS/MS level. It resolves heterogeneity of carbohydrate distribution and branching pattern of complex glycans such as isobaric isomers.
“Multi-stage mass spectrometry has become a powerful procedure for the investigation of protein glycosylation and therefore, crucial for biopharmaceuticals,” said Kay Brown, V.P. Business Development and Marketing.
