Software company Insightful Science has completed the transaction to acquire Protein Metrics, a leading provider of biopharmaceutical protein characterisation and proteomics analysis software.
Biotherapeutic protein characterisation and proteomics are critical to innovation in biomarker and biological drug discovery, vaccines, and therapeutic products. Protein Metrics provides a platform solution for protein analytical study from research through to production. Whether it is identifying proteins for proteomics, or determining heterogeneity, Protein Metrics provides substantially more information than previous technologies, which require time-consuming manual analysis by experts.
Protein Metrics’ sophisticated software allows scientists to perform highly accurate analyses on the data generated from all major commercially available liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis and mass spectrometry platforms. Underpinned by 18 patents, the products’ unique algorithms are designed to help researchers minimise ambiguity, achieve reproducibility, and eliminate inter-laboratory variability.
