September 15, 2008 - InforSense Ltd. announced that Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., a leader in serving science, has begun shipping its Proteome Discoverer software with integrated protein annotation powered by the InforSense Virtual Machine (IVM).


Proteome Discoverer’s protein annotation capabilities are based on workflows jointly developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific and InforSense. The workflows perform automated annotation of proteomics data using information from NCBI and SWISS-PROT to provide biological context to experimental data.


The workflows in Proteome Discoverer are powered by the IVM - a lightweight, analytical workflow execution engine that can run on a wide variety of platforms including workstations, servers, scientific instrumentation and mobile devices.


Proteome Discoverer is fully compatible with the InforSense 5.0 platform, and customers will be able to build their own annotation workflows and share them via the InforSense CustomerHub online community. Users of Proteome Discoverer can upgrade to a full InforSense license to build their own analytical workflows and integrate internal data to provide further annotation.
