Collaboration to advance lipidomics research
Premier Biosoft International
Premier Biosoft has announced a co-marketing and reselling agreement with AB SCIEX to help advance lipidomics research.
AB SCIEX will co-market and resell PREMIER Biosoft’s SimLipid, a comprehensive high throughput lipid identification software product, for use with AB SCIEX’s wide range of mass spectrometers.
SimLipid profiles lipids present in a sample by performing precursor search for MS data and elucidates the structures by matching product ions observed on the MS/MS spectra.
A proprietary probability score is assigned to each of the candidate lipid structure. This score is especially designed for discriminating isomers with similar m/z. It is calculated according to the best fit of the experimental m/z values with the theoretical m/z values of both precursor and fragment ions of the SimLipid database.
Additional features include:
-Analysis of both low resolution data as well as high resolution data.
-For low resolution data, SimLipid performs isotopic peak correction to remove isotope overlapping of lipid species.
-Interpretation of MS and MS/MS spectra have been made easy by annotating matched peaks with corresponding lipids and fatty acid chains.
-Each structure is mined for associated class, reaction, pathway and enzyme.
