Genedata, a leading provider of advanced software solutions for drug discovery and life science research, today announced Genedata Expressionist 7.0 for Mass Spectrometry at the 59th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry. A complete, enterprise-level solution for managing and analyzing massive amounts of mass spectrometry (MS) data, Genedata Expressionist 7.0 advances quantitative measurement of proteomics with support for Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) as well as of metabolomics with support for infusion approaches. Unicode support of special characters in experiment names or annotations (including Japanese) and improved handling of multiplex experiments are also among the latest enhancements. Genedata Expressionist 7.0 will be previewed at the 59th ASMS Conference at the Colorado Convention Center (Booth 89; June 5-9).

Genedata Expressionist 7.0 reflects a number of customer-centric advancements such as specific Unicode support for Asia/Pacific markets. Integrating and analyzing a wide variety of proteomics and metabolomics workflows, Genedata Expressionist processes large experimental data sets from all major vendors and technology platforms - regardless of data formats. The system's powerful data analysis and management capabilities are magnified with comprehensive, interactive visualizations at every processing step. The release of Genedata Expressionist 7.0 advances these capabilities and addresses researchers' demands for enhanced support of MRM- and infusion-derived data.

Complete MRM Support for Powerful Targeted Proteomics
Genedata Expressionist demonstrates the Genedata commitment to providing an MS vendor-independent, computational platform that processes all types of data formats. With robust support of MRM data loads and visualizations, the new system enhancements include innovative capabilities for annotation of MRM transitions; novel grid alignment and peak detection activities; and MRM peak exports.

The system also advances metabolomics profiling with improved support of infusion data. Adduct detection is provided for 1D as well as 2D data, and 1D- and 2D- peak clusters are intuitively visualized in multi-color formats. Improved handling of multiplex experiments such as TMT and iTRAQ is realized with the ability to export data on-demand or store in tables. The Genedata Expressionist system, which includes a rich statistical toolbox for a wide range of data analysis requirements, can visualize statistically significant marker candidates on a raw data level.

"Genedata Expressionist 7.0 continues to expand the scope of proteomics and metabolomics applications. Furthermore, it is used in biologics development and manufacturing for the analysis of drug metabolism and biologics purity," said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata. "At the core of Genedata Expressionist is our innovative software technology, which allows the efficient processing and analysis of huge data sets and enables scientifically validated statistical analysis. This significantly increases the value of MS experiments while dramatically reducing data analysis costs."

Editorial Note: Genedata Expressionist 7.0 will be officially released in July 2011 and is available directly from Genedata. System demonstrations will be conducted at ASMS at Genedata Booth 89 and in the Genedata Hospitality Suite.
