Biognosys Announces New Release of Spectronaut™ - Biognosys

Biognosys Announces New Release of Spectronaut™


15 June 2021 – SCHLIEREN (Zürich – Switzerland)

The leading software solution for DIA proteomics is compatible with MS instruments from all major vendors, including Bruker Daltonics, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and SCIEX


Biognosys, a leader in next-generation proteomics solutions for life sciences research and development, announced today the launch of Spectronaut 15. The software provides fast, robust, and seamless data analysis for mass spectrometry (MS) based data-independent acquisition (DIA) proteomics. Thus, Spectronaut enables the investigation of protein expression, function, and structure across all major biological species and sample types.


Spectronaut is a commercial software for industry and academia and is also used as part of Biognosys’ discovery proteomics contract research services. In conjunction with the company’s proprietary, patented Hyper Reaction Monitoring (HRM™) technology, Spectronaut enables reproducible and precise quantification of up to 10,000 proteins in large-scale studies. The software employs advanced Search, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to translate data into actionable insights for R&D and clinical research.


Since its first release in 2003, Spectronaut is continuously improving and always supports the newest technologies in data acquisition. The 15th generation of the software comes with an array of novel features and updates, such as:


• Significant improvements to directDIA, the industry-leading library-free DIA workflow

• A more comprehensive toolset for post-translational modification (PTM) analysis

• Improved deep learning augmentation for immunopeptidomics and ion mobility data analysis

• Powerful data visualization in an intuitive user interface

Lukas Reiter, CTO, Biognosys:

“With this new Spectronaut release, we offer our software users and service customers once more a higher level of performance, user experience, and insights to support their discovery proteomics research”,

Spectronaut lead developer Oliver M. Bernhardt will share more details on the new features during the Spectronaut 15 launch webinar, Expand Biological insights with DIA Proteomics, held today at 5 PM CEST. Beyond that, Guest speaker Andreas-David Brunner will present a robust and scalable single-cell DIA proteomics workflow using ion mobility technology (dia-PASEF), developed at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (Matthias Mann Lab).


Spectronaut 15 is fully vendor-independent and compatible with proteomics data acquired on instruments of all major mass spectrometer vendors.

Gary Kruppa, Vice President, Proteomics at Bruker Daltonics:

“Spectronaut has made it possible to implement our breakthrough dia-PASEF technology in many of our customer’s facilities. With the latest Spectronaut release, the support for our ion mobility technology has seen a significant improvement, and we are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with Biognosys to maintain Spectronaut as a key solution for Bruker’s DIA workflows.”


Andreas Huhmer, Director Marketing, Mass Spectrometry Solutions at Thermo Fisher Scientific:

“Biognosys’ Spectronaut is our software of choice to analyze DIA data in internal projects, including acquisition method development. Of course, it is also the solution we strongly recommend to our customers. Spectronaut has always been at the forefront when it comes to supporting our technology, and its ease of use and versatility makes it the best partner for DIA data analysis.”


Jose Castro-Perez, Senior Director LC/MS Accurate Mass Product Management at SCIEX:

“Spectronaut by Biognosys has been an outstanding solution for SCIEX SWATH® acquisition data since the early days of DIA proteomics technology. We are truly excited about what’s coming for SCIEX in this landscape, and we look forward to working with Biognosys to support Spectronaut as a solution for our Proteomics data workflow.”
