Nonlinear Dynamics has announced new versions of its Progenesis range for reproducible proteomics, including Progenesis LC-MS, Progenesis MALDI and Progenesis SameSpots.

In Progenesis LC-MS, the new Protein View step provides dynamic data displays and information to resolve instances where a peptide is associated with more than one protein as a result of a database search. Protein level statistics are calculated from the associated peptides. This gives the user increased confidence that expression changes at the peptide level can be related to the relevant protein in the biological system being studied.

Progenesis MALDI offers a new solution for the analysis of MALDI-TOF and SELDI data for biomarker discovery, which uses the unique Progenesis alignment approach at the core of its workflow. This allows robust statistical analysis on complete datasets as there are no missing values.

Finally, Progenesis SameSpots is a package that facilitates reproducible proteomics. New features in this release allow the use of previous experiment information giving the potential to use protein identifications across experiments, saving time and money.
