Waters acquires UK-based software company

Waters has announced that it has acquired Nonlinear Dynamics, a proteomics and metabolomics analysis software company based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. The two companies previously collaborated on the development of Waters’ TransOmics Informatics, a scalable solution for proteomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics analysis that was first introduced at the American Society of Mass Spectrometry Conference in 2012.

Nonlinear Dynamics is perhaps best known for its Progenesis software which offers researchers unique ways to analyse and visualise the raw proteomic data, and through this acquisition Waters hopes to cement its position as a leading provider of analytical solutions for proteomics, metabolomics and lipidomics.

The transaction price has not been disclosed.
