PRESS RELEASE

Scaffold 2.1

Agilent Technologies and Proteome have released Scaffold 2.1 software, which now supports the processing of search results from Agilent’s Spectrum Mill protein database search engine.

Scaffold statistically validates peptides and proteins from tandem mass spectrometry data, combines results from multiple search engines and graphically displays identifications in biologically relevant formats. Spectrum Mill performs high-throughput protein database searches of MS and MS/MS data.

Researchers who load Spectrum Mill data files into Scaffold can now compare Spectrum Mill results with those of Mascot, SEQUEST, Phenyx, OMSSA and X!Tandem search engines.

Agilent Laboratories, the company’s central research organisation, collaborated with Proteome Software to help researchers achieve higher-quality data through the integration of Spectrum Mill and Scaffold.
