Nonlinear Dynamics has signed an agreement with UVB covering the promotion and supply of Nonlinear’s SameSpots analysis software through UVB’s sales force and distributor network.
The agreement follows the recent release of the BioSpectrum 800 imaging system from UVB, which is an affordable alternative to the more expensive and slower 2D laser scanner systems. It has been developed specifically to support the image capture requirements of 2D gel electrophoresis and Difference Gel Electrophoresis (DIGE) applications with a high resolution 8.3 Megapixel image capture capability.
The SameSpots software provides improvements in speed, objectivity and statistical power research by giving customers both the facility to know how many biological replicates they need to run and the speed to make it feasible to run that many replicates – thus allowing scientists to draw valid conclusions about the biology being studied. SameSpots has been adopted by proteomics research groups and will be offered alongside the BioSpectrum 800 system and to UVB’s existing worldwide customer base.
