Genedata Enhances Mass Spectrometry Software for Biopharma Workflows
Product News Jun 16, 2014
Genedata announce the latest version of Genedata Expressionist for Mass Spectrometry. Developed in collaboration with leading mass spectrometry labs, the enterprise software platform reads data from all major mass spectrometry instruments as well as automates and standardizes complex workflows in biopharmaceutical R&D. With a scalable architecture that enables processing of huge experimental data sets, the system reduces data analysis times by factors of ten or more to accelerate the identification and quantification of critical quality attributes of biopharmaceuticals.
Genedata will demonstrate Genedata Expressionist for MS at Booth 57 at the 2014 ASMS Conference (Baltimore Convention Center; June 15-19, 2014).
Vendor-agnostic Solution Standardizes Characterization of Biopharmaceuticals
Today, characterization of biopharmaceuticals using mass spectrometry is a standard process within biopharmaceutical discovery and development. While the experimental process using mass spectrometry instruments is fully automated, the analysis of MS data remains often a manual process. Genedata Expressionist for MS allows scientists to quickly and easily deliver on even the most complex and data rich characterization projects. The system covers the entire data analysis process, from raw data import over data refinement and analysis to reporting.
The software, which reads data formats from all common MS instruments, can be used as an integration platform to standardize mass spectrometry data analysis during all R&D steps. User authentication, authorization, and rigorous documentation of all processing steps ensure the system is ready for deployment in a quality-compliant environment. It is regularly used in projects that focus on the identification of impurities, assessment of post translational modifications (PTMs), and quality control of protein batches. Genedata Expressionist for MS specifically supports the analysis of intact masses, protein sequence variants, N- and C-terminals, glycopeptides, released glycans, and disulphide bonds.
“With Genedata Expressionist for MS we raise the bar on the analysis of mass spectrometry data and set new standards for the efficient characterization of biopharmaceuticals,” said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. “In close collaboration with major biopharmaceutical companies we are committed to advancing Genedata Expressionist as the vendor-agnostic platform of choice for the quality assessment of biopharmaceuticals and making key processes in biopharmaceutical R&D as efficient as possible.”
