September 14th, 2021 – SCHLIEREN (Zurich, Switzerland) – Business Wire. Biognosys, an innovator and leader in next-generation proteomics technology and solutions for life sciences research, announced today that they have entered a collaboration with Evotec, a life science company that discovers, develops, and provides highly effective therapeutics for patients, to advance the adoption of next-generation proteomics in drug discovery and clinical research.
Evotec has been a long-term user of Biognosys’ software and kits within its research. The two companies are now working closely together to integrate Biognosys’ next-generation proteomics data analysis platform in drug discovery and clinical proteomics.
Under the extended partnership, Evotec will continue to utilize Spectronaut, Biognosys’ flagship data analysis software for data-independent acquisition (DIA) mass spectrometry (MS) based proteomics, in its research. The software employs advanced Search, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to translate data into actionable insights for life science research. Spectronaut enables reproducible and precise quantification of thousands of proteins in a single experiment and provides multidimensional insights into protein expression, function, and structure across all major biological species and sample types.
Additionally, Evotec is implementing Biognosys’ unique workflow for mass spectrometry facility management. This workflow combines Biognosys’ proprietary QuiC software with its patented indexed Retention Time (iRT) technology and iRT Kit to generate near real-time readouts from mass spectrometry instrument raw files for quality control.
The collaboration uniquely combines Evotec’s partnered drug discovery and development business model and focus on data-driven precision medicine, and Biognosys’ expertise and know-how in applying next-generation proteomics to transforming drug discovery and development.
Kristina Beeler, PhD, CBO of Biognosys, comments:
“We are excited to deploy the power of proteomics to address some of the key challenges of drug development and work closely with Evotec to de-risk therapeutic assets early on.”
Christoph Schaab, PhD, SVP Head of Proteomics & Metabolomics at Evotec, comments:
“Discovery proteomics is increasing its importance to derive functional insights in the early stages of the drug development pipeline. We are thrilled to integrate Biognosys’ proteomics data analysis expertise into Evotec’s pre-clinical and clinical development solutions for the benefit of our biopharma partners.”
