Thermo Fisher collaborates with Protein Metrics

The companies aim to provide analytical capabilities to companies across biopharma and proteomics applications

Thermo Fisher Scientific and Protein Metrics have entered into a non-exclusive co-marketing agreement to provide advanced mass spectrometry data processing and analysis capabilities across the spectrum of biopharmaceutical and proteomics applications.

Thermo Fisher brings its cloud-enabled Chromeleon CDS software to this collaboration, providing biopharmaceutical and proteomics scientists automation and workflow support. Capable of being integrated into company systems and scaled from workstation to global enterprise deployment, the software is designed to ensure business continuity. It allows operation from remote locations across global laboratory networks.

The Protein Metrics Byos platform for protein characterisation enables researchers to move from raw data files to reporting in just minutes, allowing post-translational modifications and other critical quality attributes to be monitored. Customers can also take advantage of Protein Metrics’ private-cloud Byosphere enterprise platform, which delivers enterprise-level capacity for automation, collaboration and data management in a single platform for GxP and non-GxP environments.

"Scientists undertaking biopharmaceutical and proteomics applications are challenged daily with having to accurately and reliably process a wealth of data derived from mass spectrometry instruments, which can be time-intensive and error-prone," said Matt Hazlewood, Senior Director, global chromatography data systems, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "Our collaboration with Protein Metrics allows us to leverage our shared expertise and seamlessly integrate our compliance-ready software capabilities to offer customers flexible tools that address these challenges and help meet their need for advanced technologies that analyse their mass spectrometry data."

“We are proud that our proven biopharmaceutical solutions enable companies worldwide to analyse and report on complex biotherapeutics,” said Eric Carlson, PhD, President and CEO, Protein Metrics. “Byosphere, resting on Byos' solid foundation, delivers to our users a single platform for GxP and non-GxP environments. Integrating with critical enterprise data systems, such as Chromeleon CDS, we aim to provide our mutual biopharmaceutical customers with intuitive, streamlined workflows to manage the burgeoning volume and complexity of analytical data with confidence.”
