Thermo Fisher Scientific and Genedata Join Forces to Accelerate Mass Spec-Based Metabolomics Research

  • Thermo Fisher Scientific and Genedata agreed to integrate Thermo Scientific mass spectrometry (MS) instrumentation and Genedata Expressionist® to process and analyze large volumes of MS data. The goal is to enable researchers to process hundreds of gigabytes of data simultaneously.

    “This capability is particularly beneficial for metabolomics researchers who need to classify samples and identify metabolic profiles related to important biological phenotypes. Genedata Expressionist performs high-throughput processing and automated quality analysis of MS-based metabolomics and proteomics data, enabling researchers to process hundreds of gigabytes of data simultaneously,” explains Rohan Thakur, director of marketing, small molecule solutions, life sciences mass spectrometry, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

    “Genedata Expressionist also includes a sophisticated statistical analysis platform that allows for data comparison. This integrated approach helps researchers to understand the action of all biological molecules in a single, comprehensive system.”

    Combining Thermo Scientific MS systems with Genedata software solutions, small molecule biomarker detection can be enhanced with an “end-to-end” system that encompasses complete scientific workflows, continues Thakur.
