GenoLogics, the leading developer of translational research informatics solutions, today announced the new release and general availability of Proteus 4.0, its lab and scientific data management system for proteomics.

 

“With the latest release, Proteus gains all the strength of a robust multi-science platform while maintaining its unique application features for proteomics research,” says Mike Sanders, Product Manager for Proteus. “As part of our Omix platform, Proteus’ new adaptive reporting framework allows customers to integrate data from different sources and enhance their scientific data analysis. While the new integrations and generic importer formats for search engines helps customers streamline protein identification and relative protein expression analysis, Proteus has many more enhancements in this latest release including improvements to our LC-MALDI workflows to analyze larger volumes of data.”

 

Proteus improves lab efficiency by automating data capture from proteomic experiments and by seamlessly tracking projects, samples and results. It does this with purposed instrument and analytical software integrations and enhancing analysis of contextually relevant protein and peptide comparisons. It also has a web interface for customer and external collaborators to submit samples and for the laboratory to publish results.

 

“One of the enhancements we are looking forward to using with Proteus 4.0 is the integration to ProteinPilot,” says Dr. Bruce Stanley, Scientific Director of the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center’s Proteomics and Mass Spectrometry Core. “The updated LabLink web interface will allow us to better share quantitative proteomic results with our researchers as we focus on collaborations in translational research.”

 

Dr. Kevin Schey, Mass Spectrometry Facility Director from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) NHLBI Proteomics Center is also excited about Proteus 4.0. “The integrated system will help manage the results of quantitative analysis for the LC-MALDI workflows. Such proteomic applications form an important part of our NHLBI Center activities. We are pleased with GenoLogics ongoing commitment to improve Proteus and maintain the product’s value with leading-edge proteomics labs.”

 

Proteus can be easily configured for new technologies and workflows, including user-level configurations without programming skills. For the more sophisticated user, it is easy to integrate with in-house systems with a simple framework to send and receive data from any external program. And with an open read-access to the database, plus the reporting tools in the Adaptive Reporting Framework, Proteus is a powerful informatics solution to meet evolving needs.

 

“Proteus is part of our solutions for discovery labs along with our companion lab and data management system for genomics research, Geneus,” says GenoLogics VP of Product Management, Sal Sanci.  “Both Proteus and Geneus are on a highly configurable common platform, allowing our clients to efficiently conduct systems biology research or to implement larger enterprise solutions connecting multiple labs to one common system."
