Waters Corporation and Matrix Science Ltd.'s Collaboration Accelerates Proteomics Research

03-May-2005

Waters Corporation announced it has entered into a technical collaboration with Matrix Science Ltd., by which Matrix Science's Mascot(TM) interface will be incorporated into Waters® protein informatics platform - ProteinLynx Global SERVER(TM) 2.2. Waters ProteinLynx Global SERVER (PLGS) software is an integrated family of tools for automated protein identification and characterization. Engineered by Matrix Science, Mascot is a search engine, which uses mass spectrometry data to identify proteins from primary sequence databases.

Under this arrangement, scientists using Waters ProteinLynx Global SERVER software can send queries to and display results from the Mascot search engine as well as the PLGS search engine in real-time on the company's MALDI micro MX(TM) and Q-Tof(TM) mass spectrometers. Similarly, scientists who primarily use Matrix Science software to process mass spectrometry data will benefit from enhanced support for Waters MassLynx(TM) data thanks to the integration of its file access libraries into Mascot Distiller.
