Agilent Technologies And PREMIER Biosoft Couple Hardware-Software Platforms To Advance Glycomics Research

Stocks in this article: A

Agilent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:A) and PREMIER Biosoft today announced that a selection of Agilent’s high-resolution mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography instruments now supports PREMIER Biosoft’s SimGlycan software. The combined analytical strength of Agilent instrumentation and PREMIER Biosoft’s glycan and glycopeptide data analysis software will open up a new level of discovery for researchers studying the biology of disease.

Glycomics is the study of glycome structures (sugars, modified sugars and saccharides) in molecules and organisms, a tangled web of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids that modulate cellular function and play a primary role in the development of cancer, bacterial and viral diseases, and glycan-specific hereditary diseases. These structures are very difficult to study due to their complexity and kinetics.

“Agilent and PREMIER Biosoft are focused on solving the glycan and glycopeptide identification problem in biopharmaceutical analyses,” said PREMIER Biosoft CEO Arun Apte. “Combining our powerful instruments and software will enable researchers to generate, process and analyze highly complex data so they can put it to use in drug development.”

“Used together, our powerful instrumentation and software fulfills a major unmet need for customers in biopharmaceutical research and development laboratories,” said David Edwards, Agilent’s senior director of LC/MS marketing.

Agilent and PREMIER Biosoft also offer a combined hardware-software solution for lipidomics research.
