Nonlinear Dynamics attends HUPO 2011 10th anniversary with a new version of Progenesis LC-MS
(Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) Nonlinear Dynamics Ltd, the world leading developer of analysis solutions for proteomics, metabolomics and biomarker discovery launched the new version of Progenesis LC-MS for proteomics at HUPO’s 10th anniversary meeting.
As well as attending the scientific meetings and joining the celebrations the company was there to show the latest developments for label-free LC-MS quantitative proteomics data analysis, having just released Progenesis LC-MS v4.0. Promoted ahead of the event, and with the new version already delivered to customers eligible for a free update, the company was busy showing the latest benefits.
The new features of Progenesis LC-MS of most interest to booth visitors were also the ones most relevant to the themes of scientific talks including:
- Add additional information to lists of quantified proteins. Lists of interesting proteins can be exported for further analysis in any external bioinformatics package, and results can be imported back into Progenesis LC-MS as a custom column to build up supplementary data on proteins of interest.
- Multivariate statistical tests applied to protein measurements. Correlation analysis allows you to group proteins that have similar expression patterns and helps you relate results back to the biological processes you are studying.
- Demonstrating support for workflows that increase protein and proteome coverage also generated a lot of discussion and we look forward to seeing it applied in publications.
The packed workshops and symposia dedicated to education and practical solutions for translational proteomics ahead of the opening ceremony showed many labs are still learning what they need to meet the challenge including new technologies, quality control, standardisation and reproducibility.
These requirements have been at the forefront in developing Progenesis products and Will Dracup, Nonlinear’s Founder and CEO, gave a presentation on “Quality control & Reproducibility: the key challenges of experiment design for quantitative proteomics and how we can get past them” during Sundays, Symposium on New Technologies and Standardisation, which was chaired by Bruno Domon and Christoph Borchers.
It was not just Progenesis LC-MS on show, other products were represented across at least ten posters:
- Progenesis LC-MS (P1501, P1601, P1475, P1659, OC031)
- Progenesis SameSpots (P1401, P1433, P1754)
- Progenesis MALDI (P1857)
