INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Thermo Scientific LTQ mass spectrometer and Omni Spray (R) Ion Source users now have the capability to convert their large data sets into file formats compatible with third party software using FireFly(TM) data conversion software.
FireFly is a software program that extracts and builds data sets from proprietary data systems using Indigo BioSystems proprietary data conversion algorithms into file formats compatible with BioMAP, a third party image visualization and processing software program available for free on the internet.
"Indigo BioSystems is pleased to partner with Prosolia to integrate our data management and open format technology with their breakthrough imaging systems. Prosolia's tools allow scientists to generate unprecedented amounts of exceptionally valuable data," says Randy Julian, President and co-founder of Indigo BioSystems. "Indigo's tools allow that data to be captured, used and shared. Together we ensure that imaging mass spectrometry data will have a significant impact on key decisions in biological R&D."
FireFly was created in order to visualize the multi-dimensional data sets, Prosolia's Omni Spray Ion Source can routinely generate in combination with the Thermo Scientific LTQ series mass spectrometers equipped with the Xcalibur(TM) 2.0 data system.
"As Prosolia continues to build upon the Omni Spray Ion Source product and
produce advanced platforms, such as the Omni Spray 2-D, the utilization of
data management and conversion programs will be essential to integrating
Prosolia's technologies to the variety of instrumentation that is available to
end-users today," says Justin Wiseman, Prosolia's Director of Research and
Development. "The release of FireFly(TM) with Indigo BioSystems represents
our commitment to developing reliable and universal research tools for mass
spectrometry that complement our Omni Spra
